Octavia Spencer won Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the Academy Awards Sunday night. Spencer won for “The Help” in her role as Minny — a part that also won her a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a BAFTA.
Watch the video below, and here’s the text of the speech:
“Oh, thank you! Thank you, Academy, for putting me with the hottest guy in the room.
“I have to thank my families. My family in Alabama, the state of Alabama… um… my L.A. family, watching at Steven’s or at Gada, my ‘Help’ family, Tate, Brunson, Kathryn, Allison Janney, thank you for being in my life. I share this with everybody. Thank you Steven Spielberg for changing my life, thank you Stacey Snider for changing my life.
“Please wrap up, I’m wrapping up. I’m sorry, I’m freakin’ out. Thank you world! Oh God, and thank you to WME, and Viewpoint L.A. I’m sorry guys, thank you, I love you.”

The Help‘s Octavia Spencer isn’t shy about her thoughts on cosmetic surgery.
The Oscar nominee has revealed that she does indeed planning to go under the knife — for a breast lift!
“I am going to get my boobs lifted,” she tells this weekend’s issue of Parade magazine, when asked if she’s planning any post-Oscar splurges.”That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that. I figured going into my forties I want my boobs where they were when I was 17.”
She added that she plans to have the surgery this fall, because “right after the Oscars I start a Diablo Cody movie. We’re taping out of the country for four months so I wouldn’t be back here until about August. So I would want to do this around November. Then that way I could just relax until January.”
Can’t wait to see the results, Octavia!
