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

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.
As previously posted, Sandra attended last night the premiere of “The Blind Side” in her new city, New Orleans. The event was done to raise money for Warren Easton High School, devastated by Katrina in 2005. Check the pictures below:

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
MoviesOnline sat down with Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, and director John Lee Hancock to talk about their new film, “The Blind Side.”
“The Blind Side” depicts the remarkable true story of Michael Oher, a homeless African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys, a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the same time, Oher’s presence in the Touhys’ lives leads them to some insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American offensive left tackle.
Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Quinton Aaron, John Lee Hancock are fabulous people and we really appreciated their time. Here’s what they had to tell us:3
Q: You’re playing people who are real but aren’t famous so the audience wouldn’t know them. When you go about that, what are you looking for and how do you set about trying to capture the spirit of that person?
TIM: I think more of the spirit. I wasn’t really trying to imitate anybody. I wouldn’t want to imitate Sean for anything. I think that I can relate to him in a lot of ways. We both grew up in Louisiana. I was an athlete and he was an athlete, although I wasn’t quite the athlete that he was. And also, as a kid I remember, I’m going to give him a few years and say high school, but I remember watching him play for Ole Miss. As a kid growing up in northern Louisiana, we got to see a lot of Ole Miss games, and I have a wife that runs everything athome , so I think I can relate to Sean in a lot of ways, and the script was so well written that I just wanted to capture the essence of it and not really try to imitate anybody.
QUINTON: With me, me and Michael have a lot of similarities as far as our personalities. We’re both gentle giants, we keep to ourselves, we’re both the biggest kids in our school. I hadn’t met him, so I didn’t want to try to overact or anything or whatever.John Lee , my coach, Coach Lee, he made me feel comfortable with being myself in the role, so I just tried to put myself in the positions that he was in, based off the script, and do the best I could.
SANDRA: That’s a tough one because I do think that I tried to get as close – I mean, you don’t meet an energy like Leigh Anne’s ever. She might not be famous here, but she’s known in other places and I felt a great sense of fear in trying to tackle that person she is, but also a great sense of obligation to be true to this wonderful dynamic. John could not explain Leigh Ann to save his life, and when I met Leigh Anne, I said, “Now I know why you can’t, because she’s original.” But there’s such a dynamic that exists between those people and their children that you wanted to pay homage to them. I wanted to do it as closely as I could, so I did my best.
