Sandra Bullock takes the Oscars by storm...

Last night saw the great and good of the film industry walking down the red carpet to a tumultous reception. The 82nd Academy Awards dominated the news, but there was perhaps little surprise in the winners of the Oscars. One of the less surprising awards came in form of Sandra Bullock picking up Best Actress, only a day after having received, in person, a Golden Raspberry. She was honoured for her role in 'The Blind Side', one of the many film scripts at the ceremony to have its roots in a novel. 'The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game', was written in 2006 by author Michael Lewis, a non-fiction author currently writing for 'Vanity Fair'. Although the book features two parallel storylines, the film primarily concentrates on one, following a footballer from impoverished upbringings through to his current high status. Accepting her award, Bullock asked the audience, 'Did I really earn this, or did I just wear you all down?'
