Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer made in to W Magazine’s best performance issue that highlights twenty of “this years brightest stars.”

You can skip the intro and get straight to the pictures. The writer that wrote the introduction should read the open letter the Association of Black Women Historians wrote about ‘The Help.’


Viola Davis In The Help “No matter what, people don’t think of me for glamorous parts. I’ll go to an audition or a meeting in a pretty dress, and they still think of me as depressed or embattled. Hopefully, that will change.” viola-davis-w-best-performance.jpg



Octavia Spencer in The Help “I don’t know how to cook or bake or prepare anything in the kitchen, and my character, ­Minny, is a fantastic cook. That was the hardest part of playing her. I don’t know how to do anything other than get a plate from the cabinet and stick something in the microwave.” octavia-spencer-w-best-performance.jpg
