Sandra Bullock’s Unabsurd Victory for Best Actress

Caio Pimenta analyzes the explanations for Sandra Bullock’s victory, for “A Possible Dream”, in Best Actress on the Oscars 2010 not be absurd.


To start with, it’s needed to investigate the trajectory of Sandra Bullock till the Oscars 2010.

Sandra Bullock’s first success got here in 1994 with “Maximum Speed”, a nonsense with a script lint through which she and Keanu Reeves maintain with the best ease on this planet solely by their chemistry.

Failure with “The Network” was simply overcome with “While You Slept” displaying that, along with the motion movies, she would serve to be additionally the younger girl of romantic comedies as occurred later with “When Love Happens”, “Forces of Destiny” and “Love at Second Sight”.

In an try to ascertain himself additionally as an actress of extra severe movies succumbed amid so many abilities of “Time to Kill”whereas “28 Days” did not persuade anybody.

The flip got here in comedy “Miss Congeniality” through which she is ready to maintain a comedy with none problem, being even nominated for a Golden Globe.

The Academy started to look at Sandra Bullock with a little bit extra consideration on “Crash“, the stunning Oscar winner in 2006. But nothing in comparison with what would come subsequent.

In brief: a charismatic actress, decoy of excellent field workplace even when not so acknowledged for her expertise.


in A Possible Dream, Sandra Bullock finds a movie that falls like a glove for her.

Playing a lady who adopts a younger black man deserted to his personal luck and encourages him to pursue a profession in american soccer, the star performs a personality through which he can mix humor carrying in fury and depth, whereas within the drama delivers sufficient to persuade inside his limitations.

It could also be thought-about an Oscar bait quietly, however between us, if it wasn’t for Sandra Bullock, “A Possible Dream” would not even be remembered, it will fall into simple oblivion.

So you say: ‘however, Gaius, for God’s sake, is that sufficient to win the Academy Award for Best Actress’? I may even agree with you that it wasn’t, although, that was an distinctive season.


The 2010 Oscars did not have a crop of movies that good: of the ten obligatory nominees for Best Picture, half there might have leaked with none downside. The race for Best Actress was even worse with a race leveled beneath.

Of the candidates who had been disregarded, we had Audrey Tautou, of “Coco Chanel“, to Marion Cotillard, by “Nine“, Emily Blunt, of “The Young Victory” and Julia Roberts, of “Duplicity”.

These had been nominated for the SAG, Golden Globe or Bafta. All proper, none of them missed these roles. However, even the nominees did not get that excited.

the Meryl Streep, for instance, brings an excellent efficiency as all the time in “Julie & Julia”, however nonetheless removed from his finest works even from that point as “Adaptation” and “The Devil Wears Prada”.

On the opposite aside from Helen Mirren counted on the benevolence of the Academy after “The Queen” and was indicated by “The Last Station”, a manufacturing that nearly nobody remembers.

The degree was higher with two actresses then revelations of the time.

Although Lee Daniels exaggerates the paints a number of occasions, Gabourey Sidibe is great at “Precious” by making a devastating duo with Monique in a drama of probably the most tough.

In one other tone, the Carey Mulligan capricha in sweetness and delicacy to star “education“. The stunning British movie jumps degree due to its protagonist.

Still, the 2 had been in a special state of affairs than in the event that they met different younger stars voscar snares of that point.

Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, was in a movie that got here stronger on the awards and had as its largest rival Emmanuelle Riva, a veteran of French cinema.

On the opposite aside from Brie Larson even as a result of her essential rivals, Cate Blanchett and J.Law herself, have lately received their awards.

Gabourey and Mulligan had entrance certainly one of hollywood’s largest stars on the time extraordinarily charismatic and in its finest efficiency up to now.

Apart from that, regardless of nice work, none of them did something overwhelming to unquestionably dominate the awards season.

In this fashion, the Oscars ended up falling naturally into the arms of Sandra Bullock, winner of Best Actress in a season that mirrored this achievement.
