    People Ask Sandra Bullock To Return Her Oscar After ‘The Blind Side’ Controversy

    Sandra Bullock is a formidable actress who has won numerous awards throughout her career, including an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award. In 2009, Bullock won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy in the biographical drama ‘The Blind Side’

    The film is a 2009 sports drama, both written and directed by John Lee Hancock. It narrates the story of Michael Oher, a football offensive lineman who overcame an impoverished upbringing to play in the National Football League with the help of his adoptive parents Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy. However, these claims were denied by Oher, resulting in Bullock being caught in a rut amidst ‘The Blind Side‘ controversy.

    The former NFL star Michael Oher’s recently filed a legal petition against the Tuohy family, claiming that they never adopted him and instead put him under a long-term conservatorship while earning money off his likeness. Amidst these claims, Sandra Bullock who portrayed Leigh Anne Tuohy and won the Best Actress Oscar in 2010, is being ridiculously dragged between ‘The Blind Side’ controversy. 

    The majority of the time, fans can make ridiculous claims and this is one of those many claims. X users, previously known as Twitter, think that “Sandra Bullock should return her award because she played a primary role in the film about Osher’s story.”

    A user wrote, “So Sandra Bullock should have to give back her Oscar right, and man do we need to start checking these good feeling stories”, while another user added, “If #sandrabullock is a decent human being, she will make a statement”. Amidst the controversy, a fan added, “This may sound farfetched but, she should give #MichaelOher that Oscar statue. She is raising children who are looking up to her. This is a key moment for her to show who she really is.”

    On 14 August 2023, Michael Oher threw allegations against the Tuohy family claiming that they engaged him in deception by having him sign conservatorship documents at the age of 18, under the premise that it was essentially equivalent to adoption.

    The former NFL player’s legal representatives also stated that the Tuohy family went on to benefit from the falsehood that he had been adopted, deliberately misrepresenting themselves as his “adoptive” parents to the wider audience. Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy responded to Michael Oher’s allegations that they profited to his detriment, labeling them as “outlandish, hurtful, and absurd” and part of a “shakedown” by Michael Oher.
