LOS ANGELES, Jan 1 — In the eyes of US movie theatre owners, Sandra Bullock shined as 2009’s top Hollywood star at the box office, as the actress nicknamed “America’s Sweetheart” scored with audiences after a two-year absence from screens.

Quigley Publishing Company’s annual list released yesterday of top money-making stars, based on a poll of hundreds of theatre executives, had Bullock beat out such stars as George Clooney and Denzel Washington, on the strength of her roles in “The Proposal” and “The Blind Side.”

Romantic comedy “The Proposal” made US$315 million (RM1.07 billion) at worldwide box offices following its June release, and football drama “The Blind Side” has made US$193 million only in the US and Canada since its Nov 20 release, with its roll-out in other countries still to come.

Bullock, who also starred in the 2009 comedy “All About Steve” with its US$34 million take in the US and Canada, is the eighth woman to top Quigley’s list of top money-making stars, which the company has put out each year since 1932.
