Bullock: Gravity one of my best experiences

Sandra Bullock enjoyed "one of the best filming experiences" ever while making 'Gravity'.

The 49-year-old actress, who has been nominated for an Oscar Award for female lead Dr Ryan Stone in the sci-fi thriller, said she enjoyed working on Alfonso Cuarón's latest film because of the support she received.

Speaking at the annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills yesterday, she said: "I worked with the nicest, kindest, most patient group of people who all had a tremendous amount riding on them because of new technology, unknown waters.

"It should have been a very stressful situation, but everybody was so supportive that I had one of the best filming experiences I've ever had."

Cate Blanchett, who has also been nominated for a Best Actress for 'Blue Jasmine', stars as trophy wife Jeanette Francis, known as Jasmine in the film, and confessed she wasn't able to keep any of the designer outfits which she wore on set.

She said: "They [the outfits] all had to go back at midnight. I think the entire costume budget was less than the Hermes bag, which was also borrowed."

Amy Adams, who is nominated for 'American Hustle', is anticipating the award ceremony which will take place on March 2 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and insists she'd like to dress to accommodate her own style when she attends the bash.

She added: "Sometimes I feel like I am dressing in costume on the red carpet, and this year I want to feel like myself. So I guarantee when I am on the red carpet this year, you can know that's a dress I would wear. It's not a character's dress."
