What? Oscar Talks for Sandra Bullock in "The Blind Side?" Really? 

Wow, 2009 is shaping up to be Sandra Bullock's year! And she deserves it!

First, the super-affable Bullock starred in the biggest romantic comedy of the year, "The Proposal." (Check out my fun interviews with "The Proposal" cast and crew right here)

Now, many Hollywood insiders are saying, Bullock deserves an Oscar for her performance in the upcoming "The Blind Side."

Really? We've forgiven the actress for starring in the horrible "All About Steve" already? :happy

Well, let's see. "The Blind Side" is a heartwarming true life story about Leigh Anne Tuohy (Bullock), a Southern belle who persuades her family to take in a homeless African American teen, Michael Oher (played by Quinton Aaron).

It's an against-all-odds drama that's not manipulative nor cliched.

The Los Angeles Times is saying:

"But it's Bullock, burning up the screen as an upscale Southern woman who finds her heart and soul, who should finally earn some awards attention. It's easily her best screen work since her underrated supporting turn in "Crash," but she has yet to appear on anybody's short list of best actress candidates. (This writer excluded.)"
