When you think of Sandra Bullock, Oscar nominee probably is not the first thing that comes to mind. The actress has made her career on a mix of romantic comedies and thrillers, and although she’s always been a Hollywood sweetheart, she’s never necessarily been seen as a top talent. And if it could at all be possible 15 or 20 years into a movie career, Bullock has just finally proven her acting abilities with “The Blind Side.” A 2010 nominee for best picture, the film would be nothing without Bullock as its leading lady.

It’s the true story of Michael Oher, a rookie offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens this past fall. As a high school student in Memphis, Oher was taking in by Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, after being bounced around in foster homes for years.
