Sandra Plans her Next Move!
I am an admirer of Sandra Bullock. A great fan indeed. Mainly because despite her god-given nose, she went on the conquer Hollywood, and lately because she had the gumption to accept in person, the two Razzies that she won just the eve before the Oscars! Here’s Sandra making here future plans after winning the three (actually four) awards in a row! Retirement from acting could allow her to focus her attention on Fortis Films, her own production company. Good thinking, I’d say. Fortis Films need to do better if they don’t want more Razzies coming their way!
Here’s a portrait of Sandra Bullock that I did in 1998 – A much younger Sandra by a much younger me!

For Sandra, success didn’t come easy. Born in 1964, she continued to struggle until her early thirties, when she starred in Speed. Next she worked in While You Were Sleeping and Miss Congeniality (a lovely movie.) Both these movies had their sequels made.
Another movie in which Sandra Bullock’s performance brought her applause was Crash. (Albeit small, her role in this movie leaves a strong impression on you.) Another good movie is the Lake House, which is based on a somewhat abstract concept. (Two people, Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, inhabit the same house but in different dimensions of time – and they connect through time. Weird Concept – but weirdness has its takers, as this caricature here proves.)
According to the Wikipedia entry, the Blind Side has been a hugely successful movie – the highest grosser so far with a female lead. Following are the awards that she won for her performance in this movie.
The Academy Award (and she won on her first nomination!)
The Golden Globe Award
The Screen Actors Guild Award
Additionally, Sandra Bullock has the rare distinction of winning two Razzies (Golden Raspberry Awards give for worst performances) just a day before winning the Oscar! She won the Razzies for some unknown (to me) film called, All About Steve! (This movie, incidentally, was produced by Fortis Films, Ms. Bullock’s own production company.)
Movies I’d recommend (and I’ve seen):
and of course, The Blind Side!
