Monday Musings On All Things Southern

Another "Who Am I?"

I am a native of Virginia, born to an opera singer and a voice coach. I grew up around music but fell in love with acting, which I studied at East Carolina University. I moved to NY to pursue a career on the stage but fell into movies and television programs. My breakout role came in 1994 in a movie in which I drove a bus.

I won an Academy Award for my 2009 performance in a movie in which I portrayed a spunky Southern woman named Leigh Ann Tuohy.

Who am I?

[Congrats to Gayle Scheff who commented last week and won a book from my book shelf! You can win, too!]


  1. It may say something about my love of trivia that I got this from who her parents were, long before you got to the line about the bus. Sandy!! Ms. Bullock is one of my favorite actresses.

  2. Didn't know her background, but she still looks like she did in that picture. Must be nice for Sandra to always look that young.

  3. Love me some Sandra Bullock. She is one of my favorite actresses and The Blind Side is one of my favorite movies. I did not know her background though. Very interesting. God Bless.

  4. Sandra Bullock! I didn't know about her background either...interesting!
