Another 'Blind' triumph for Sandra Bullock


As I noted in my original Variety review of The Blind Side: "It's difficult to imagine anything that could long impede or contain the force of nature that is Leigh Anne Tuohy, the feisty Memphis belle played by [Sandra] Bullock with equal measures of acerbic sass, steel-willed brass and unabashed sentiment. Bullock is thoroughly convincing in the role -- right down to her credible accent and the blonding of her normally brown tresses -- and she's not afraid to occasionally keep audiences guessing as to whether Leigh Ann's actions are driven by a heart of gold or a whim of iron." Bullock won a Golden Globe last week, and a Screen Actors Guild award tonight. And she owes it all to me. Yeah, right.
