Everything you need to know about Hidden Figures Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer


So it's Oscar season...

And you may have heard about critically acclaimed, NASA true story Hidden Figures...

... Chiefly, its wonderful star Octavia Spencer who has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress

So where have you seen her before? Well, who here remembers her hilarious role in TV's Ugly Betty?

Still, that was just the start. She won her first Oscar for her outstanding role in The Help – remember the pie scene?

She also stunned in the powerful Fruitvale Station opposite Creed star Michael B. Jordan...

... And in utterly crazy dystopian sci-fi Snowpiercer

Not only is she a diverse actress; she's also a children's author and a brilliantly funny interview, as well

That's why we love Octavia
