Last night at The Screen Actors Guild Awards, two FAB Actresses won awards for their roles in the film, ‘The Help’.

Based off the novel by Kathryn Stockett, it is about African American domestic workers in Missisippi who help a young white woman write a book from the point of view of, ‘The Help’. Set against the civil rights movement, it details the complex relationships between the white families and the maids who are employed by them.

Octavia Spencer won the award for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for her portrayl of the fiesty Minnie. Viola Davis won for her role as Minnie’s best friend Aibleen, and took home the award for ‘Oustanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Lead Role’. Minnie and Aibleen help the character Miss Skeeter, played by Emma Stone, round up other maids to tell their stories; the good and the bad.

The SAG Awards are said to predict who will win at The Academy Awards, or Oscars, and we wish both these FAB Women the best of luck! We’ll be watching!
