Sandra Bullock has been named Entertainment Weekly’s "Entertainer of the Year."

The magazine says it was a no-brainer.

“First the 49-year-old Oscar winner teamed up with the uproarious Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig’s winning buddy cop comedy 'The Heat.' Then, as Dr. Ryan Stone in Alfonso Cuaron’s 'Gravity,' Bullock gives an emotionally naked performance that will likely earn her an Oscar nomination. Bullock’s tremendous talent and range — to say nothing of the woman’s trademark grace and good humor in good times and bad — is what earned her the top spot on our annual list of the most exciting performers in 2013," EW wrote.

Her fans won’t argue.

Bullock rose to fame with her 1993 performance in "Demolition Man" and 1994 role in "Speed." Her résumé also includes starring roles in "A Time To Kill," "Miss Congeniality," and "The Blind Side," the latter of which earned her an Oscar for Best Actress. She also played a supporting role in the film "Crash," which won the Oscar for Best Picture in 2004. Critics have praised her role in "The Heat," with Melissa McCarthy, and "Gravity," both of which have been box-office hits.

“She could run a country if she wanted to,” actor Matthew McConaughey was quoted as saying in a New York Daily News story.

Bullock, who is single, is raising a 3-year-old son, Louis. She told Entertainment Weekly recently that she’s not interested in dating — for the moment. “If it should come along, great. But I feel like I’m not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is 3 years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I’ve got plenty to do.”
