Octavia Spencer Wins the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress

Congratulations to Octavia Spencer on her 2012 Oscar's win for best supporting actress in The Help.  Her Oscar's award is the crowning glory to her collection of awards including a Golden Globe, Critics Choice and SAG.

Spencer was understandably overcome with emotion when her name was called out and she received a standing ovation from the illustrious Oscar's crowd.

What a formidable woman. What an inspirational achievement.

 "...every nameless, faceless woman of colour who now has a chance because tonight this door has been opened"
