You’ve got two days to vote for this round!
Chastain or Spencer? Spencer or Chastain?August 29, 2012 at 10:08 pm #539524
This one was so tough. Both were so good. Chastain made me feel more sympathy for Celia than I did in the book. But with Octavia, she just commanded the screen. Minny had to be larger than life but not a cartoon. She did a great job at balancing that.August 29, 2012 at 10:29 pm #539525
Octavia Spencer.August 29, 2012 at 10:48 pm #539526
Chastain, just divine.August 29, 2012 at 11:03 pm #539527
Jessica Chastain.August 29, 2012 at 11:43 pm #539528
Jessica Chastain.August 30, 2012 at 12:28 am #539529
I think I just broke the tie.
It doesnt seem fair to have to choose one over the other. Both of them were divine.August 30, 2012 at 5:44 am #539530
Octavia by miles.August 30, 2012 at 6:58 am #539531
This one is hard. I, among with everyone else, loved Octavia Spencer. She absolutely stole the show and I remembered her character for weeks after I saw the film. Still, I remember sitting in the theater thinking “Who is the actress playing Celia? I love her!” I was absolutely captivated by Jessica Chastain’s performance and I remember thinking how great she was and how I looked forward to this new Hollywood talent. She made me feel the most emotion, for sure. That said, I had to pick Spencer. It was just a tour-de-force, unforgettable performance and it really elevated the film, although I truly loved Chastain.August 30, 2012 at 8:21 am #539532
Chastain was superb in not just The Help, but also every other movie she was in last year. I’d have to go with her.August 30, 2012 at 10:31 am #539533

I voted for Octavia.
Jessica Chastain was fine, but Octavia Spencer stole the whole show with that pie-scene.
I liked thier scenes together the most, though.August 30, 2012 at 1:41 pm #539535
I think Spencer a little bit overrated. Both Chastan and Dallas Howard were much better.August 30, 2012 at 2:09 pm #539536
Spencer WAS great but not AS great as she was made out to be winning every mayor award, IMO Chastain was better (even though she had less screentime and a less important role) and she should´ve won without a doubt…
