17. Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side (2009)
Don't start with the Academy Award bullshit—did you even watch this movie? This is Oscar bait, pure and simple. You can sit down with a checklist and see why she won for playing a white savior just by reading the plot synopsis alone. But watch the movie and see for yourself.
The truth is, the performance does not have the power and raw emotion advertised. Perhaps all the attention she received for this role has made us jaded, but we still can’t understand the praise Bullock got for playing an overbearing mother figure to Michael Oher, who, by the way, is made out to be a gentle giant of the Of Mice and Men variety. C'mon, people.
She dyed her hair, affected a hammy accent, and acted like the suburban mother from hell. And we are supposed to applaude this?
