Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer Talk About Their Oscar Nominations for "The Help!" 


I love these two actresses, and I firmly believe that their performances helped elevate "The Help" from being a run-of-the-mill civil rights drama. Here's what they said about their Oscar nominations (click here for the full list) courtesy of our friends at DreamWorks:

Octavia Spencer regarding her nomination this morning for “The Help”.

“I am so honored that not only was my work recognized by the academy, but that the tireless efforts of our amazing cast and crew culminated in nominations for Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain and the film itself. It is a testament to our true ensemble of talent, both in front of and behind the scenes.”

From Viola Davis “The Help”:

"It's an honor to be nominated a second time, it is a personal accomplishment and triumph for women and women of color. I'm so glad the film has been recognized, it was a labor of love from the moment it was conceived and it is rewarding to see the impact it is having."
