Loser: Sandra Bullock and 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'
We know Sandra Bullock can deliver an award-winning performance (see "The Blind Side"), but with "Extremely Loud," the beloved actress actually gets some something more than a glorified TV movie to dig her teeth into. Her portrayal of a 9/11 widow who has a strained relationship with her young son is just the kind of meaty, challenging role that Bullock once lost to more "serious" actresses. That the Golden Globes made the same mistake this time around (and passed over a movie that, also bolstered by standout performances from Tom Hanks and child actor Thomas Horn seems like sure-fire awards bait) just seems like adding insult to injury.
