The Oscars

I watched the Oscars and was disappointed that Sandra Bullock wasn’t nominated for anything.  Then I realized that’s because  she didn’t have to work last year after raking in $56 millions in 2009 for The Proposal and Blind Side.   Anne Heche must be really angry because she just revealed that she regrets turning down Sandra Bullock’s role in Speed. I had to google who Anne Heche is…but she was  just as  big of a star as Sandra Bullock at that time and she is a fine actress too.  Despite the relatively unknown Sandra Bullock, the movie was a hit and catapulted Sandra Bullock instantly to an overpaid star.   I think for Blind Side, they should have gone with Anne Heche to save some money since it was such a good script.
