Honestly, Octavia Spencer’s win for Best Female Actor In A Supporting Role, was expected, as she’s been the one to beat during this awards season. She’s been on a roll this season, having won awards for her performance at the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and now the SAG Awards. Spencer was honored to be recognized by her fellow actors, and quoted after her win:
“It’s beyond profound,” she said backstage, “because its your peers saying you are the best that you can be tonight.”
I believe Octavia will soon be called Academy Award Winner, because she got The Oscars on lock.
Viola Davis I thought had more competition, and I wasn’t too sure if she would get it, especially since Meryl Streep seems to be the one to beat, and who was the one who walked away with the Golden Globe. But she did it and she won for Best Female Actor In A Leading Role.
Viola quotes after her win
“I feel pretty overwhelmed with my name being called,” Davis said backstage Sunday night when the cast answered questions about the film’s best ensemble win.”
“I just don’t see the ‘best’ thing going on,” Davis said. “It’s hard. Every time I start a new job, I feel like I start with a clean slate. … I feel like everyone is going to find out what a hack I am. And it’s strange to triumph over Meryl Streep.”
I am so happy to see that they BOTH got wins last night, well deserved!!!
