Nominee reaction: Octavia Spencer

Supporting actress, 'The Help'

Even after her win at the Golden Globe Awards, Octavia Spencer didn’t want to get her hopes up too high about an Oscar bid until Tuesday morning. In fact, some of “The Help” gang had a sleepover to help each other get through a nervous night.

“I am never presumptuous because these sorts of things are beyond our control and I didn’t want to be set up for disappointment,” Spencer said. “A lot of us actually went to dinner last night and slept over and wanted to be together when we found out, so in case we didn’t get that call we wanted to be nice and hungover.”
