If the Golden Globe nominations didn’t already make it obvious, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards list clinched it: Sandra Bullock is well on her way to Oscar nomination.
Meryl Streep’s and Sandra Bullock’s campaigns for Academy Awards are sailing quite smoothly, thankyouverymuch, with Golden Globe noms for best actress (Bullock, in “The Blind Side”) and best supporting actress (Streep in both “Julie & Julia” and “It’s Complicated”) under their belts. Bullock and Streep are competing against each other for the SAG best actress award because, under SAG rules, Streep’s part as Julia Childs in “Julie & Julia” is considered a lead role, not a supporting one.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
• Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
• Helen Mirren, The Last Station
• Carey Mulligan, An Education
• Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
• Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia
Congratulations, again, Sandra!

Treat yourself this holiday season and fall in love with the witty romantic comedy “All About Steve” when it debuts on Blu-ray Disc (BD) and DVD December 22 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Golden Globe-nominee Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper star in this off-the-wall comedy about a blind date gone hilariously wrong. When eccentric, but lovable, Mary gets set up with Steve, a news channel cameraman, she falls hard. He does not. Mary decides to follow Steve on a cross-country hunt for breaking news and soon finds herself entangled in the story. But despite the media storm surrounding her, Mary may just discover her true place in the world… and the man of her dreams! From director Phil Traill and produced by Sandra Bullock, the film also stars Thomas Haden Church, Ken Jeong, Keith David and Kerri Kenney.
The “All About Steve” two-disc Blu-ray Disc has high definition features including a hilarious parody with behind-the-scenes interviews by cast member Kerri Kenney. Additional bonus material includes cast and crew commentary, deleted scenes, a gag reel, an a capella duet with Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong, crew snapshots to Mary’s rap, Fox Movie Channel presents Casting Session, and Digital Copy for download onto portable devices.
The “All About Steve” DVD includes cast and crew commentary, “Hollywood Dish with Mina Mitcheletti” featurette, “All About All About Steve,” deleted scenes, a gag reel, and crew snapshots to Mary’s rap.

The best sports movie since “Friday Night Lights” and the best acting Sandra Bullock’s ever done!!
This film scores tons of touchdowns. This is one incredible true story that’s so moving, it inspires you to try to be a better person. Really moving. Best of all, it’s well-acted with just the right sprinkling of comedy to prevent you from od’ing on sugar. Because the real-life couple depicted by a never-been-better Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw seem just too good to be real. In fact- so are their kids. But maybe that’s the New Yorker in me.
This is the story of Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher and the Memphis family who adopted him after he was abandoned by his drug-addicted mom to fend for himself in the projects.
Newcomer Quinton Aaron is perfect as the gentle giant Big Mike. “Friday Night Lights” standout Tim Mcgraw has a less demanding role this time as the laid –back balance to the tornado that is his wife. But it’s Sandra Bullock’s moment to shine after a number of fumbles including “All about Steve”, “Premonition” and “The Lake House”. She was born to play this role!!! P.S. to New York Giants fans: you will LOVE the opening scene.

Sandra Bullock’s portrayal of southern mom Leigh Anne Tuohy in the new film The Blind Side finds her in a blond wig, looking astonishingly like Kathie Lee Gifford, according to Today’s Matt Lauer.
Even though Kathie Lee instantly appears on set to compare hair, it’s her rear end that attracts Bullock’s admiration.
Look for her next project to be a Kathie Lee biopic. Called The Back Side
