Octavia Spencer continues her winning streak this awards season.

Once again, Spencer walked away with a best supporting actress prize, this time at BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards). Dressed in a white blouse and a long, black, feathered fringe skirt, the actress accepted her trophy for her role as the special pie-making maid, Minny Jackson, in The Help.

This is Spencer’s fourth best actress win, having won a Golden Globe, the Critics’ Choice and a SAG Award. Her co-star Viola Davis has won for best actress at the SAG and Critics’ Choice Awards.

With this triumph, Spencer’s next and final contest is the Academy Awards, where she will be, once again, up for best supporting actress.
