Congrats are in order for Octavia Spencer!!
After snatching up a SAG award, a Critic’s Choice Award and a Golden Globe, her award mantle is complete now that she can add an Oscar to it.
Octavia looked amazing tonight as she took the stage to accept the award for Best Actress In A Supporting Role for her performance in ‘The Help’. She broke down as she approached the podium and the Academy Awards were cuing the music just seconds after she got herself together. [We almost had flashbacks of Halle yelling ‘Wait a minute here, it’s been 74 years, I gotta take this time’ when they cued the music during her speech].
Although, she only had a good minute to get out her Thank you’s, Octavia made the best of it by thanking her family in Alabama, the State of Alabama, Steven Spielberg and her agents.
