After winning Golden Globe, BAFTA and SAG and Critics’ Choice Awards for her role in The Help, Octavia Spencer won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for playing feisty maid Minny Jackson.

“I have to thank my families. My family in Alabama — the state of Alabama,” she said in her acceptance speech. ” My L.A. family watching at Steven’s. My ‘Help’ family. I share with this everybody. Thank you [producer] Steven Spielberg for changing my life.”

The film, based on a book about rebellious maids in a 1960’s southern town, spent two weeks at number one and raked in over 90 Million dollars at the box office in its first three weeks. Watch Spencer’s acceptance speech below.
