Nailed it

On Sunday morning, NPR has the weekly puzzle courtesy of Will Shortz.  Here's this week's:
Take the first name of a nominee for Best Actor or Best Actress at Sunday's Oscars. You can rearrange these letters into a two-word phrase that describes his or her character in the film for which he or she is nominated. Who is this star, and what is the phrase?
Of course the actor is Christian Bale and in "American Hustle" he was not a chair.  "Isn't chair."  Boom.

Update - The "correct" answer is Sandra Bullock for "Gravity" in which she played a NASA DR.  Needless to say, NASA is an acronym and DR. is an abbreviation and neither are words. Boo.

The delectable Amy Adams was as mouth-watering as a juicy, delicious yam.
