Check out this image of the cast of the Help winning best ensemble at the SAG Awards last night. I’m pretty sure we won’t see that many women on a stage again at the same time winning an award (at least not this Oscar season.)
Just take it in because it is beautiful.
Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis also won for their roles in the The Help. Both made beautiful eloquent sppeches that are not about them, they are about our culture. Other female winners include: Kate Winslet for Mildred Pierce; Jessica Lange for American Horror Story and Betty White for Hot in Cleveland. Mary Tyler Moore received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Here’s what Viola Davis said:
“the stain of racism and sexism is not just for people of color or women. It’s all of our burden. All of us. And we absolutely I don’t care how ordinary you may feel all of us can inspire change. Every single one of us”.
