Celebrating the Oscars: My Favorite Oscar Moment - 2011
People have heaped loads of criticism on The Help, much of which is deserved. But for some reason, I love this film. I know its not the best directed or written piece, but damn it is one of the best acted. Octavia Spencer came out of a nowhere and stole our hearts every time she stole a scene as Minnie. I love stories like this. The veteran character actor, who suddenly gets the chance of a lifetime. Since then, she has earn two more nominations, and has become a genuine star. Those tears she sheds are tears of pure joy, and this moment was exactly that.
