Bullock makes “Blind Side” worthy, nabs Oscar nom


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.
