People Think Sandra Bullock Should Get An Oscar For This Scene In New Netflix Movie

People think that Sandra Bullock should get an Oscar for one specific scene in her new film The Unforgivable.


The Netflix flick stars Bullock as Ruth Slater, a woman recently released from prison for murder who is attempting to put her life back together after 20 years locked up and find her younger sister. 

However, fans have been talking about one scene in particular, with some believing it is Oscar-worthy, for both actors involved.


The clip shows Viola Davis, who plays Liz Ingram, having an intense battle of words with Bullock, who bursts into tears at the end of the gut-wrenching scene.

You can watch it below:

Commenting on Twitter, one person wrote: "Sandra Bullock and Viola Davis are INSANE for this.


"This scene is phenomenal like they deserve every single award!!!"

Another wrote: "Viola Davis is a phenomenal actress, got her first Oscar nomination for only about 8 minutes of total screen time but she 100% deserved it for her powerful performance."

Another added: "Sandra Bullock is phenomenal in this.

"That’s it.


"That’s the tweet."

Someone else commented: "Viola and Sandra are the most one of the most incredible actresses I know the way the act they not just act they living their roles they are just amazing I haven't watched The Unforgivable yet but I definitely will.

"I grow up watching Sandra on TV and she is just an inspiration."


A final user concluded: "I respect them both so much.

"It was a rollercoaster just watching this scene.

"These two women are brilliant as actors and I love them as beautiful humans."

An official synopsis for the film reads: “Released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, Ruth Slater (Bullock) re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past.


“Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.”

If the plot sounds familiar, it’s because it’s based on the British mini-series Unforgiven, which starred Suranne Jones and Will Mellor, which was released in 2009. 

You can watch The Unforgivable on Netflix now.
