SANDRA BULLOCK (Debbie Ocean) is one of Hollywood's most sought after leading ladies. In 2014, she received her second Academy Award nomination, for Best Actress, for her performance as Dr. Ryan Stone in the critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller "Gravity," directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Her portrayal also garnered her nominations for the Critics' Choice, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, as well as her first BAFTA Award nomination. Earning $723 million worldwide, "Gravity" is Bullock's highest-grossing film and her most critically acknowledged, winning seven Academy Awards. Most recently, Bullock completed production on Netflix's post-apocalyptic thriller "Bird Box," directed by Susanne Bier.

In 2010, Bullock won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in "The Blind Side," in which she portrays Leigh Anne Tuohy, the matriarch of a conservative suburban household.

Following acclaimed roles in several motion pictures, Bullock's breakthrough came in the 1994 runaway hit "Speed." Her next two features, "While You Were Sleeping," for which she earned her first Golden Globe nomination, and "The Net," were both critical and popular successes.
