Sandra Bullock wouldn’t reveal where she was on nomination day — “I like the privacy of our home bubble,” she said of her California hideaway — but was awakened by a phone call telling her she had snagged a best actress nomination for “The Blind Side.” Despite her wins from SAG and the Golden Globes, she still didn’t think she would hear her name, so the night before it was her usual routine: cooking for her family, putting her kids to bed and then hitting the sack. “I’d always assumed that the road to Oscar was planned. I thought people chose projects that were considered ‘Oscar-worthy.’ No one wanted to make this film. I didn’t want to make this film for the better part of the year,” she said. “Everyone is as blindsided — can I say that? — as I am.” But as surprised as she was, Bullock said the most moving part of the morning was hearing that her movie got a best picture nomination. “That’s what makes me emotional. John Lee Hancock spent two years of his life on something that no one else saw. And now he’s been recognized!” She added: “I love that there’s 10 nominees. It doesn’t matter if they win, but I think it’s great that everyone gets their moment in the sun.”
