Two lovely stars who attended Waldorf schools recently were honored in Los
Angeles for their superb acting: Julianna Margulies,
who stars in "The Good Wife,"
emerged as the biggest winner of the SAG Awards when
she triumphed for best TV drama actress. That brings her total number of awards
to seven - four of which were for her outstanding role in "E.R." Julianna Margulies attended Waldorf schools
all her life. Sandra Bullock won
a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and an Oscar for "The Blind Side." We're proud
of both these Waldorf alums!
