Sandra Bullock is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after leading ladies. Bullock most recently starred with Bradley Cooper in the comedy “All About Steve,” which she also produced for her production company, Fortis Films. She also starred opposite Ryan Reynolds in the romantic comedy smash hit “The Proposal,” which has grossed over $300 million worldwide. Bullock has also recently earned praise for her performances in such dramas as the Truman Capote biopic “Infamous,” in which she portrayed author Harper Lee, and the 2004 Oscar-winning Best Picture, “Crash,” directed by Paul Haggis, for which she shared in a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Outstanding Performance by a Motion Picture Cast.
Bullock had already appeared in several acclaimed motion pictures when her breakthrough came in the 1994 runaway hit “Speed.” Her next two features, “While You Were Sleeping,” for which she earned her first Golden Globe nomination, for Best Actress – Comedy or Musical, and “The Net” were both critical and popular successes.
She later earned another Golden Globe nomination, for Best Actress – Comedy or Musical, for her performance in the hit comedy “Miss Congeniality,” which she also produced for Fortis Films. Under the Fortis Films banner, she has also produced and starred in “Hope Floats,” which marked her producing debut; “Practical Magic”; “Gun Shy”; “Two Weeks Notice,” opposite Hugh Grant; and “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous.”
She made her debut as a writer/director with the short film “Making Sandwiches,” in which she also starred with Matthew McConaughey. The film debuted at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival.
For television, Bullock served as an executive producer of the highly successful “The George Lopez Show,” which aired on ABC for six seasons and can currently be seen in syndication.
In addition to her Golden Globe nods and SAG Award, Bullock has received numerous awards and nominations for her work, including two Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, four MTV Movie Awards, an American Comedy Award, eight Teen Choice Awards, and four People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Female Movie Star. Additionally, in 1996 and again in 2001, Bullock was named ShoWest’s Female Star of the Year by the National Association of Theatre Owners.
