Sandra Bullock - Best Actress Winner Oscars 2010 + Mo'nique

Sandra Bullock won best actress at the 2010 Academy awards for her performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy in the football movie The Blind Side.

I'm really glad she won the Oscar because I read this morning that she won a Razzie Award for her performance in last year's All About Steve.

This is the first time someone has won an Oscar for Best Actress and a Razzie for Worst Actress in the same year so to me, to quote Chris Brown, its like wow!

I first saw Sandra Bullock in the 1994 movie Speed which is one of my favorite suspense movies. I've seen my share of good performances from Ms Bullock and also some bad ones like the unbelievably bad sequel to Speed.

Congrats to Sandra Bullock, 2010's Best Actress Winner who can now be called Academy Award Winning Actress Sandra Bullock in her next trailer or on her next DVD release.

Also congrats to Mo'nique on her Best Supporting Actress award for her performance in Precious. That is a great accomplishment in African American film.

Dr Phil Relationship Rescue Review

Who doesn't know Dr. Phil? Popular TV personality and relationship expert who is as much a part of pop culture as your favorite actor or musical artist. 

So when you need relationship advice ourselves, when things are going tough, its only logical that we either seek out "real world" advice or seek the advice of someone we're already familiar with, who has that credibility we seek. We look no further than Dr. Philip McGraw and his book Relationship Rescue. 

With Relationship Rescue, Dr. Philip C. McGraw has done a great amount of work to try and help people put their lives back together after things have fallen apart. This is no different from anything else that he has done on television with his show that brings in people who are in the middle of family crisis. If there are problems that people are having, he will help them find a way to solve it themselves.

While it might be better to have Dr. Phil right there with you to help you figure things out, his book, Relationship rescue, provides the next best thing. While it is always recommended to go seek counseling, it may not always be feasible. What makes many efforts to save relationships fail is that there is no action taken. Dr. Phil insists that if your relationship is to be saved, then both parties must work to save it. Any marriage counseling or relationship advice that anyone will give you will let you know that work is involved.

Phil McGraw's book gives people instructions that are very helpful but can be difficult because he challenges both parties in the love relationship to look inwardly and own up to their problems and work to fix them. He tells them that they need to work as hard to fix themselves as they expect their partner or spouse to work on theirs. Relationship Rescue says that even if you think that your significant other is the root of all the problems you must scrutinize yourself.

In Relationship Rescue, Dr. Phil asks readers to perform an self analysis regarding their feelings about the relationship. There are lists of questions that are categorized by topics like, "Relationship Health Profile," "Personal Concepts Profile," "The Relationship Behavior Profile: Your Partner," "The Relationship Behavior Profile: You." Just looking at those headings you know that it is going to require some serious work and thinking that will be well worth it once you see an improvement in not only your perceptions of the relationship, but in the relationship itself.

Dr. Phil's Relationship Rescue also encourages people to change their perspective of the relationship from a negative one to a positive one. Most people make things out to be worse than they are. Changing one's viewpoint of the other in the love relationship may help them see that the problems may be as bad as first thought.

Dr. Phil, as always, gives common sense relationship advice that requires some hard thinking and some hard work. There are millions of people who have taken his advice that he gives in this book and seen dramatic improvements in their lives. If you don't have the patience or the time to read his Relationship Rescue book, there is an abridged audiobook available that makes the information easy to understand but also helps in that you get to listen to his sound advice in his own voice.

If you're looking at Relationship Rescue for advice on getting your ex back, consider T. W Jackson's guide that addresses this problem directly called The Magic of Making Up.
