The Oscar Nominations were just announced this morning and I know a couple of ladies who are hype this morning! Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer BOTH have been nominated for Oscars for their roles in the drama The Help! This will make Viola‘s second nomination and Octavia‘s first nomination.
The Oscars will be live on ABC on Sunday, February 26th at 7 PM Eastern. Viola just won a Golden Globe for her role as Aibileen Clark just week over a week ago. Viola is nominated in a very tough category, in my opinion. Other actresses joining Viola in the Actress In A Leading Role category are Glenn Close, Rooney Mara, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams. Octavia will be against Bérénice Bejo, Jessica Chastain (Also from The Help), Melissa McCarthy and Janet McTeer in the Actress In A Supporting Role category.
