Octavia Spencer Oscar 2012
"The Help" had lots of traction coming in the 2012 Oscar's with Octavia having the most hype to win for her respective category. This continues to be ground-breaking as it was recently revealed that the majority of voter's that vote in the Academy are White-males. In retrospect though, African-American's still have long ways to go as some feel that roles for African-Americans in Hollywood have diminished over the years. Some have also pointed out that many of the Oscar roles won by African-American's are stero-typical roles.
Octavia had a moving speech and was cheered with a standing ovation. The much deserved award almost proved somewhat to much for the actress as she seemed very overwhelmed. She thanked the people who stood by her and the people who gave her a chance! Congrats!
