Sandra Bullock ended last year with two Golden Globe nods. She ushered in this one by shattering box office records.

Bullock’s acclaimed film The Blind Side became the first movie in history to pass the $200 million mark with only one top-billed female star, Variety reported Tuesday. In its seventh week, the film earned $208.5 million in box office sales.

None of Bullock’s past films in which she was the only star actress hit $200 million in sales, Variety reported. It’s not even a record Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep or Angelina Jolie can lay claim to.

“And we’re not even done,” said Dan Fellman, Warner Brothers president of domestic distribution. “I think Blind Side has another $30 million left.”
