Sandra Bullock Makes The Blind Side the First Female-Driven Film to Make $200 Million at the Box Office 2010-01-05 11:30:25

Sandra Bullock and The Blind Side Make History

2009 was a very good year for Sandra Bullock, and the actress is bringing her big success right into 2010. Over the weekend, The Blind Side became the first female-driven movie to rake in over $200 million at the box office. It's hard to believe yet incredibly empowering at the same time — even megastars like Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep have yet to hit the $200 million mark without the help of a male costar.

I couldn't be happier to see one of Hollywood's most beloved actresses blazing a new trail, and hopefully this is just the first of many big blockbusters we'll see from the slew other talented ladies in the industry. Plus, Bullock's award-worthy performance absolutely deserves the recognition, as does The Blind Side.

Now, we'll just have to wait and see if her luck will continue throughout the upcoming award season — starting with the People's Choice tomorrow night!

good for her and i'm really excited that all this recognition is for something OTHER than her cheesey rom-com roles (although i do love me some Hope Floats! :) )

She has been underrated and typecast in romcom roles these past few years, but I always remembered her dramatic chops from A Time to Kill. She further showcased her talent in Crash and now The Blind Side. I'm so happy for her and I look forward to her future roles
