Wow!!

Sandra Bullock apparently almost didn't take her Oscar-winning role in The Blind Side!!

Imagine if she hadn't??

She would have been so PISSED!!

Sandy said:

"It took John Lee Hancock nearly a year to persuade me to meet Leigh Anne, and even then I wasn't sure I could do her justice. I also don't think I could have done this role even five years ago, but yes, having a family of my own helped clarify the dynamics in my head."

We think you did a great job in the role!! So did the Academy, obviously!!

Kudos for taking a chance!! They pay off sometimes!!

    YES, and her portrayal was such a stretch and so far out of the box that she so deserved to win an Academy Award for it *rolls eyes*



  2. 2

    Sandra Bullock reported all this over 2 months ago. You usually are late with news but this is ridiculous.

    Sandra Bull-DYKE!!!

    Sandra Bullock is my FAVORITE female actress. I think she did a fabulous job on this movie.

    holy redlipstick batman!!!!!!!!!!



  6. 6

    Um… her face is pulled back so fucking hard I'm surprised she could even move her mouth to give an interview.



  7. 7

    Love her. She's always come off like a class act.



  8. 8

    Biggest regret of her life if she decided not to do this… I think she did an amazing job with this role.



  9. 9

    This is such incredibly old news - she has been saying this ever since the movie was first released.



  10. 10

    P.S. Any semi-decent actress could have played this very one-note role - and she did not deserve an Oscar for her work.



  11. 11

    I read this a while ago. Anyway I'm glad Sandra decided to step outside of her comfort zone. It certainly paid off.



  12. 12

    She looks more like a man every time I see her…



  13. 13

    What's wrong with her mouth ?!? She should take a mental note to NEVER wear that shade of lipstick ever again !!



  14. 14

    You are so fuckin late…this shit came out before the movie even hit theatres



  15. 15

    She looked best in Hope Floats.

    Oh please. We all know the Academy Awards is nothing about great roles, important films etc. It's all about politics and awarding people who campaign for themselves. It's a whole lot of fuss about nothing.



  21. 21

    Remember her in, "While you were sleeping"? …(((smile)) still so enjoy that movie. Congrats, girl !



  22. 22

    OLD FCKING NEWS!

    This woman bores me to tears,second only to that megaboring repulsive Aniston,but at least I don't see Bullock's face everyday in the news.



  25. 25

    Re: stellagranos – Agree. Plus it was one of the most boring films ever made…



  26. 26

    Old news by the way. But I could imagine if she did not take the role. Just about anyone of about 25 or more of the top female actress of the right age range or any age range could have played the role better. It was not a very difficult role. I like Sandra but she is a horrible dramatic actress. They might be a bit older but Helen Miriam or Meryl Streep would have played the much better. Do you think that Sandra could have played Juila Childs or the Queen with out generating laughter from the audience? My top choice for the Oscar this year Carey Mulligan would have handled the role better. By the way that obese girl from precious was also a lame oscar nomination. But it was a weak movie year anyway, in terms of really good stuff, .

    Re: judalon – It was much longer then 2 months ago.



  28. 28

    Are you kidding me? This news is MONTHS old. It was widely publicized when she was nominated for the Oscar. Gosh you really are lame.



  29. 29

    OK, that is really old news. Get with it, Perez.

    It was no better than a made-for-tv movie — any one of 100 actresses could have phoned in that same level of forgettable acting. Let's not get a good story idea mixed up with Oscar worthy acting.
