  • The star of Miss Congeniality has said that she's already guessed who the Best Actress winner will be

    Sandra Bullock (the star of two of our all-time favourite films, Miss Congeniality and Speed) has said that she’s already guessed who the Best Actress winner will be and is resigned to missing out on the golden statuette at next month’s Academy Awards.

    Her latest film, The Blind Side, about a homeless African American youngster who gets taken in by a well-to-do white family, is up for two nominations: Best Film and Best Actress for Sandra in the role of Leigh Anne Tuohy, the mother of the family.


    The movie has been a hit in the States and has received much critical acclaim, however, the actress is facing stiff competition from previous Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren. She’s also up against the British newcomer Carey Mulligan and Precious actress, Gabourey Sidibe.

    Sandra told that she wasn’t holding her breath for an award: ‘I’m so not winning an Oscar. Nine times out of ten I always pick who’s going to win… And I already know who’s going to win. I’m not going to say, but nine times out of ten, I’m right.’

    Sandra was showing a lot of love for her fellow nominees following a spontaneous kiss with Meryl Streep last month at the Critic’s Choice Awards in Hollywood.

    ‘I have to say, all the ladies in our category, we don’t care who wins. Someone’s going to win and the rest of us will be really happy for whoever won.

    ‘We’re just happy to be here. And we like the company we’re in’
