Yesterday, Sandra Bullock picked up a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her work in The Blind Side, and now the first-time nominee finds herself pitted against 16-time nominee Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia) for the prize. Not that she feels competitive. “Meryl and I laugh about what people say about us going ‘head to head,” Bullock says. “In our world, we talk, we laugh, we’re so thankful just to have a mention. I told her, ‘This ride with you has made it so sweet.’ Because I like her so much as a human being and as a woman.”
