It looks like Sandra Bullock will be going back at the Oscars for her latest film "Gravity" after a triumphant premiere in Toronto International Film Festival. "The Blind Side" actress is certainly up for an Oscar after her zero gravity performance, a great work of art in many different ways.

When asked about the possibility of an Oscar nod, the 49-year-old actress says, "I don't think anybody can honestly feel comfortable at the Oscars, it is such a frighteningly powerful night of emotion, and you have on a dress that hurts somewhere and they're making fun of you, and the fashion choice you wore."
"Gravity" is a cinematic masterpiece of space odyssey that features visual complexity and great narrative that highly speaks to Cuaron's gifts as a filmmaker. He is the real artist that is capable of steering us through vividly imagined worlds, and takes its audience into the depth of human emotions.
According to Cuaron, the process of filming "Gravity" is 'painful and gruesome' for Sandra Bullock. "Bodily fluids come to mind," says Bullock. "There was blood. Blisters."
Bullocks plays Dr. Ryan Stone, an astronaut who was cut adrift from her ride back to earth and was stuck in the inky darkness until she discovered a way to survive. Instead of using the "Vomit Comet" - a plane that allows you to achieve weightlessness - Director Cuaron utilizes a new technology that facilitates "Gravity's" thrilling and chilling outer space scenes.
"There were contraptions that took 20 minutes to get into," says Bullock, "that harnessed you and locked you into something that you had no control over once it started."
She endured long takes of uncomfortable positions strung-up like a marionette on a 12-wire system. "It was something completely new," she says. "It was more like being part of Cirque du Soleil than what we had been used to as actors."
For Sandra, the shoot was physically and emotionally draining for her. She describes it as "the Wild West".
"Most of it was frustration and trying not to take your anger out on Alfonso. I had no one else listening to me but him so he got the brunt of it. But it was my frustration with myself because I didn't have all the tools I was used to, to get me where I wanted to go.
"I missed being in the sun. I missed being with my son. I missed being with people and having communication. It was lonely. Luckily I got to get out of it at the end of the day and appreciate the sunshine or my boy."
But in the end, all her sacrifices was being paid off by the never ending praises of her performance and a possible Oscar.
