“Congratulations Octavia Spencer”

Congratulations to Octavia Spencer for winner the Oscar for best Supporting Actress for her role in the movie “The Help.” Even though I am clearly not a fan of the movie and their portrayal of African Americans I am proud to see our African American sister and the academy recognizing her talent. I wish her all the success in the world. Below is an article from the Huffington Post recalling more detailed information about Octavia and her rise to Oscar Glory.

  1. Very well said. I feel the same way. I get upset that when I say I don’t like the movie, that people think I don’t like the actresses and that’s not the case.

    • Right Q. It’s not that I don’t like the actresses because they are very good actresses but the movie and the concept of the movie is what I didn’t like. Black people always being portrayed in a subserveant manner bothers me regardless of what the context of the movie was about. But her and viola davis are both great actresses.
