Awards season has just begun and Sandra Bullock, who’s sure to be a red-carpet fixture thanks to a record-breaking year, is already looking forward to some downtime.

The star of The Blind Side had a winning night at the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday, picking up trophies for favorite actress and for The Proposal, her movie with Ryan Reynolds which was named favorite comedy.

Despite the accolades, Bullock, 45, is ready for a break from moviemaking. “I don’t want to open anything and read anything right now,” she says. “I’m enjoying too many other things in my life. Once you get a project, it’s a lot of time out of your life. I don’t want to leave home right now.”

While Bullock doesn’t have the “slightest idea” what her next project will be, she does plan to focus on simpler pleasures, like enjoying “a nice cup of coffee in the morning at 6:30, watching the sun come up. I have a really blessed life,” she says.

This year’s People’s Choice Award marks the star’s fifth win for favorite movie actress since her first nomination in 1996. In her acceptance speech on Wednesday, a tearful Bullock heaped thanks on colleagues and her family, including husband Jesse James.

“I don’t need anymore than I’ve got,” Bullock said. “And I’ve finally realized that. And that’s a good feeling. You just go, “aaahhh.”
