Back in 2005 Sandra did a cameo on this Kevin Bacon movie, starred by his wife Kyra Sedgwick. Sandy is not mentioned on the initial credits and it’s the last name on the ending ones, and wasn’t mentioned on the posters when the movie was released, so mostly people didn’t know she was part of it.
The movie tells the story of a neglected daughter that becomes a possessive mother. The entire film is filled with flashbacks telling her story, and Sandra is ‘Mrs. Harker’, her fantasy mother. I have added screencaptures of the film in the gallery, as well some posters.
Reflecting an awards season in which no one film is dominating, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, voting Sunday, produced a tie, awarding its best picture prize to both Alfronso Cuaron’s survival-in-space-tale Gravity and Spike Jonze’s slightly futuristic love story Her. Cuaron was also named best director, with Jonze as runner-up. Gravity also was cited for its cinematography by Emmanuel Lubezki and its editing by Cuaron and Mark Sanger, while Her got a nod for K.K. Barrett’s production design.
Pictures of Sandy at Gravity screening in Tokyo has just been added to the gallery.

The International Press Academy, which will hand out its awards March 9, just announced the list of nominees, and as expected, Sandy got her one as Best Actress for Gravity.
