Octavia Spencer wins the Supporting Actress Golden Globe – AWARDS ALLEY
By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: In a little bit of a surprise, Octavia Spencer won the Golden Globe for Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture – Drama on Sunday evening for her work in Tate Taylor’s “The Help.”
In a move that just might cement her as the Oscar frontrunner, the actress (who also took home a Critics’ Choice award this week) topped Berenice Bejo (“The Artist”), Jessica Chastain (“The Help”), Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs”) and Shailene Woodley (“The Descendants”).
Now I’m anxious to see if Viola Davis can pull off an “upset” in her category, as well.
