Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep have been staging elaborate cat-fights ever since award season started, and now that the two both earned Oscar nominations for best actress, Sandra’s saying game on!
“With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voice mail
going, ‘You’ve got to watch your back. I’m gonna cut you. I’m gonna
take you down,’” Bullock tells the Associated Press. “And then she sent
me dead orchids and told me to die, so I sent her a case of liquor and
told her to toast to white trash.”
Obviously though, all the bitchiness is in good fun; the two actresses even smooched at the Critics’ Choice Awards when they tied for best actress.
Bullock has been a favorite to take home the Oscar for her performance in The Blind Side but the oft-nominated Streep hasn’t won since the 80s for her role in Sophie’s Choice. Both actresses won Golden Globes for their performances, so it looks like this will be a close one. Gabourey Sidibe and Helen Mirren also earned nods. Oh and um, Carey Mulligan is nominated too.
