Welcome to the first installment of Career Watch, a new bi-weekly column by veteran film reporter and Moviefone guest-blogger Anne Thompson. Every other Wednesday, Thompson will look at the career of a major Hollywood star, analyze the moves they've made thus far and offer career advice on where they could or should head from here. This week: Oscar winner Sandra Bullock.

: "Don't you dare lie to me." If Sandra Bullock ever used that line from 'The Blind Side' on her rapscallion husband Jesse James, it didn't work. The last year brought the best of times and the worst of times for the hard-working actress, who starred in two hits and one flop and won her first Oscar -- and may have lost her marriage.
