    Chastain or Spencer? Spencer or Chastain?

    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.

    I think I just broke the tie.

    It doesnt seem fair to have to choose one over the other. Both of them were divine.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I think Spencer a little bit overrated. Both Chastan and Dallas Howard were much better.

    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…
