Hollywood stars SANDRA BULLOCK and QUEEN LATIFAH were named Women Of The Year at the American edition of Glamour magazine's annual awards on Monday (30OCT06).

Bullock was honoured as The Undercover Activist for her quiet million dollar donations to charities following September 11th (01) and the Indian Ocean Tsunami in December 2004.

Accepting her red trophy at New York City's Carnegie Hall, Bullock thanked her fellow Women Of The Year - AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH producer LAURIE DAVID, RACHAEL SCDORIS, SOMALY MAM, IMAN, BISHOP KATHARINE JEFFERTS SCHORI, BILLIE JEAN KING, KATIE COURIC and ANGELA, ROSITA and MARGHERITA MISSONI.

Bullock said, "Bishop - all I can say to you is it's about damn time. Billie Jean King for some reason I don't play tennis, but I try - I try really hard. Rachael - You're my hero, you amaze me, I can't even make it to the gym."

Queen Latifah, real name DANA OWENS, was reunited with her CHICAGO co-star CATHERINE ZETA-JONES, who presented the rapper/actress with The Role Model award.

Owens explained, "The reason why I took the name Queen was that my mother told me that all women were Queens and should be treated as such...So I dedicate this award to my mother who is the first Queen in my life." (ES/WN/GES)
