The Help is warming up for the sprint towards Oscar gold.  At last night’s “Critics Choice Move Awards” the movie walked away with wins for Best Actress (Viola Davis), Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer) and Best Ensemble.  In a moving acceptance speech, Davis said:

“The two most important days in a person’s life are the day you were born and the day you discover why you were born,” Davis said during her acceptance speech. “I considered it my honor to pay homage to these women at this time period who were not allowed to dream and not allowed to find their purpose but thank God, praise God they gave birth to me and my mother.”
