Sandy and Meryl fight for Oscar

It’s the catfight no one could have seen coming.

Sandra Bullockand Meryl Streepare two of Hollywood’s most loved actresses, and probably the friendliest. But since being pitted against each other for the Best Actress award at this year’s Oscar’s, there’s nothing friendly between these two film females.

Sandy and Meryl have gone up against each other for every major award this season, including the People’s Choice Award which they both won in a rare tie.

But with the upcoming Oscars, Hollywood’s major awards show of the year, the two actresses have taken to threats and practical jokes as a leadup to the big night.

Sandy tells the Associated Press, "With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voicemail going, 'You've got to watch your back. I'm gonna cut you. I'm gonna take you down.' 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.”

But putting the jokes and pranks aside, Sandy admits that while winning would be great, it’s the fun of being nominated alongside actresses like Meryl that is great in itself. “No one, at least the people that I've met, no one cares about the end result or the statue. It's being able to sit in close proximity with these ladies... and we have to go through this whole rigmarole and we just all look at each other and we get to know each other and you laugh at the absurdity of it all and how they pit women up against each other.”
