Forbes released their annual list of Most Poweful Actresses and Sandy was ranked second. She was also the Highest Paid Actress of the year!
Sandra Bullock ranks second on our list of the Most Powerful Actresses and 36th on our overall Celebrity 100. In 2009, Bullock had a huge financial and critical hit with The Blind Side. After winning the Best Actress Oscar for the movie, Bullock took some time out of the limelight.
In 2013, she was back with a vengeance. Her comedy The Heat earned $230 million at the global box office (and showed that an action comedy with two female leads can be a big money maker).
But that was small potatoes compared to Gravity. The risky film, which features Bullock floating alone in space for much of its 93 minutes, was one of the biggest hits of 2013, earning $716 million at the worldwide and seven Oscars. Bullock will next be heard (but not seen) in The Minions, a spin-off of the popular Despicable Me franchise. Bullock earned an estimated $51 million in the past year.
Movies based on original ideas, as opposed to comic books or young adult novels, are rare these days in Hollywood. Movies based on original ideas that cost $100 million to produce and feature one actress for the majority of the screen time are even rarer but director Alfonso Cuaron and Warner Bros. had a huge hit with “Gravity.” Much of that success can be chalked up to Sandra Bullock’s gripping performance as Ryan Stone. Not only did the film win seven Oscars but it also helped Bullock become this year’s highest-paid actress.
Sandra Bullock was named Best Actress at 40th Saturn Awards held by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films on June 26, 2014 in Burbank, California.

Contact Music – Gravity has won a Golden Trailer award for the Trailer of the Year. The sci-fi film was voted the best trailer out a wide variety of films nominated for the various Golden Trailer awards. Gravity’s trailer also won the award for Best Thriller Trailer.
The trailer, entitled Detached, depicts Sandra Bullock and George floating through space, before Bullock crucially loses hold of a life line whilst on a mission outside the space station. The trailer, much like the film, appears to be wonderfully simplistic with the action taking place entirely in space. However, it’s certainly a breath-taking trailer with the drama evidently playing out between Sandra Bullock’s and George Clooney’s characters.
The Golden Trailer Awards took place on Friday (30th May) and Gravity won the top award. Other previous winners of the Trailer of the Year award include Star Trek, The Dark Knight Rises and The Social Network.
Other winners of this year’s awards include Godzilla for Summer Blockbuster, Dallas Buyers Club for Best Independent, and Maleficent for Best Fantasy Adventure. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen also won awards, respectively, for Best Action trailer and Best Animation/Family Film trailer.
The Golden Trailer Awards have been awarding and honouring feature film and documentary trailers since 1999. The possible awards are numerous and such categories include Trashiest Trailer, Most Original and Best Summer 2014 Blockbuster Trailer. The trailers considered for awards this year were created from March 8th 2013 to April 11th 2014, according to USA Today.
