Octavia Spencer Has a Blast at Hasty Pudding Celebration!

Octavia Spencer gets kisses from two costumed performers while sitting in the lead car of the parade during her 2017 Hasty Pudding Theatricals Celebration on Thursday (January 26) in Cambridge, Mass.

The Oscar-winning actress was honored as the Woman of the Year!

“That pot was hard to get,” Octavia joked about how this honor compared with winning her first Oscar in 2011 (via THR). “It was difficult to get, but it was one that will be forever indelibly etched in my memories. This has just been so much fun today.”

Octavia was just nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars again, this time for her performance in Hidden Figures.

“That really touches my heart because I have the luxury now of getting to choose … the characters that I play,” she said in response to fans who called her an inspiration. “One of the things that I like to do is choose movies … that will allow for a little escapism but also educate while entertaining, and I think Hidden Figures does that on so many levels.”
