On Sunday, June 8. An LAPD spokesperson confirmed to Us Weekly that Bullock's Los Angeles home had been broken into at 6:30 a.m. PT.

This news comes the day after Bullock received a major award at Spike TV's Guy's Choice Awards on June 7. Three of the leading lady's most famous costars -- Keanu Reeves, Hugh Grant, and Matthew McConaughey -- presented her with the Decade of Hotness Award.

"I feel like I'm at my funeral. Decade of Hotness…My question was what decade?" Bullock, 49, joked. "I have several under my belt. It should really be Decade of Hot Mess."

Bullock has been granted a emergency protective order against the man who gained access to her Hollywood home this weekend, Joshua Corbett, reports claim.

Last year, Bullock was granted a restraining order from Thomas Weldon, who had been accused of stalking the actress since 2003.
