Sandra Bullock Comes Ever Closer to Oscar Nod After Boost From Her SAG Peers

After The Blind Side rocketed out of the gate with a $40.1 million opening weekend — it has since pulled down more than $150 million — we wondered if this was the role that could actually score Sandra Bullock her first Oscar nomination. Well, her peers in the Screen Actors Guild gave her chances a big boost this morning when she was honored with one of the five nominations for Best Actress. As the Los Angeles Times has pointed out, there have only been a handful of instances in the last decade when an actress nominated by SAG has not gone on to receive an Academy Award nomination. So, while we are loathe to jinx anything, we think it's probably safe for Bullock to start making some phone calls to stylists who have experience dressing clients for the Oscars.

So, who else fared well this morning?

The Best Actor category mirrored the Golden Globes selection with one exception: The Hurt Locker's Jeremy Renner took the place of surprise (and controversial) Golden Globe nominee Tobey Maguire. As for Best Actress, well, Emily Blunt has had better mornings; she was snubbed in favor of Meryl Streep's righteous performance as Julia Child in Julie & Julia. And as long as we're talking about the difference between Globe noms and SAG noms, Diane Kruger must be feeling redeemed this morning: She got a Best Supporting Actress SAG nod for her work in Inglourious Basterds, whereas the Globes chose to honor Julianne Moore's work in A Single Man.

And with that, here's the complete list of this year's SAG nominees:
