The Help

As Minny Jackson in The Help, the role which won her the 2012 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, Octavia got a chance to pay homage to our country's Black American domestic workers. The Alabama native did it with no apologies, spunk and a revolutionary spirit. Best of all, Spencer served one of the most memorable chocolate cream pies in movie history.
