Breakout Star

In 2011 the film The Help was released and Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis were the stars. The story is about Black maids in the South and the impact they had on the households they worked in while fighting adversity. Viola was so believable that she was nominated for an Oscar in 2012 for the role of Aibileen.
