And the Oscar goes to…Congrats to Octavia Spencer, a fellow Alabamian, for winning Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards on Sunday night for her role in The Help. I LOVE that she shouted-out the state of Alabama in her acceptance speech and that she gave a "War Eagle" on the red carpet while being interviewed by Robin Roberts (Octavia received her bachelor's degree from Auburn University).
Also, congrats to Sean "Diddy" Combs on his Oscar win for the documentary, Undefeated, which he executive produced. I hadn't heard of the documentary until recently, but I really want to see it. The film documents the struggles of a high school football team in Memphis that is turned around on and off the field when a local man steps in as coach. According to Diddy, it's a film that will make you cry. "I cried like a baby in my house," said Diddy If it made him cry, then I know I need to have a box of tissues nearby when I watch it. Do you plan to see it?
