Sandy attended last Sunday the 84th Annual Academy Awards and I have (late) added the first batch of pictures to the gallery. Gorgeous diva, she looked amazing donning black and white silk gown with gold detailing and draped cowl back by Marchesa. She accessorized the gown with a pair of luxury earrings and statement rings.
Sandy has presented the award for Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars, using her speech to showcase her own linguistic skills.
“The Academy is trying something new year … Because there are over in 1.2bn people in China , they have asked me to briefly speak about this category in Mandarin Chinese.
“One quick note, as my mother spoke German to us as we were growing up, my Chinese has a very slight German accent.”
She then launched into a speech – in German. The award for foreign language film went to the Iranian film A Separation.
Check back later for more pictures. A huge thanks to Claudia from Divine Cotillard for some of this pictures.

Warner Bros’ year-end release Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close faced a challenge of being too late and too early — simultaneously. Its late December release and tight post-production schedule meant it wasn’t out in time for many year-end best-of lists, and as a result other films have taken the spotlight during the past month on the awards circuit. At the same time, for some it might be too early for a film that explores the horrors of the 9/11 tragedy. Still, the drama starring Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Thomas Horn and Max von Sydow did show up on the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Best Picture nominees list. (Warner Bros is promoting von Sydow’s performance with a new featurette that includes new sound bites, behind-the-scenes footage and clips; see it below). Bullock, von Sydow and Horn sat down with Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond for an AwardsLine Q&A following the first industry screening of the film in early December.
So, the nominees for the 84rd Academy Awards was announced a few minutes ago, and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close got a nod as Best Picture! Max von Sydow got also a nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Congratulations for cast and crew!
I added a few more HQ sized pictures in the gallery, all taken last December 15th. Check it:
Thursday morning on Today, Sandy sat with Matt Lauer to promote Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. She admitted that she doesn’t have quite the large part that some would expect. “I’m actually in there for about 24 minutes,” said Bullock. “There might be more, but I don’t know how many moments like this there will be. With stories like this. With directors and casts like this … you can’t say no to that.”
