Bullock's double play

What a year it's been for Sandra Bullock.  Not only are two of her films from this year among the top 20 earners for 2009, but now she has a pair of Golden Globe nominations to show for her work in "The Proposal" and "The Blind Side."  Here's what she had to say about being recognized for both movies:

"I am beyond stunned.  Just to be included in the company of these amazing women I have so admired through the years has left me slackjawed with awe.  It is TRULY an honor just to be nominated by the Hollywood Foreign Press, and I will cherish this moment with all the artists I have worked with behind the scenes, who truly make me look good!  Thank you very much."

Since she mentioned them, here are the "amazing women" with whom Bullock is nominated:

    I Love Sandra Bullock but she is up against some tough competition. I just saw the Blindside today and it was an awesome movies it almost brought me to tears. The actress that should give her a run is Gabourey Sidibe, "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire" I've seen this movie 4 times and everytime it has made me cry. I wish them both the best for The Drama Category.
