Congrats 2 Viola Davis; Octavia Spencer & The Movie The Help for Nabbing Oscar Nominations

24 Jan

The Oscar Nominations were announced this morning and The Help leading ladies snag top honors as contenders for 2 of the biggest prizes. 1st up Viola Davis who played maid Aibileen Clark will step up to the plate when she squares off against good friend Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Michelle Williams (My Week With Marilyn), and Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) in the Best Actress Category.

Octavia Spencer who nabbed a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in The Help is up for the same category at the Oscars for her role as Minnie Jackson.

This is quite exciting that both actresses are nominated and from the same film which is also nominated for Best Film.
