And the nominees were:

Octavia Spencer in "The Help"
Jessica Chastain in "The Help"
Janet McTeer in "Albert Nobbs"
Berenice Bejo in "The Artist"
Shailene Woodley in "The Descendants"

Quoting Dr. Martin Luther King in your acceptance speech could come off as a bit pretentious, but Octavia Spencer's amazing performance as maid Minny Jackson in "The Help" was deserving of the reference. Fellow nominee and castmate Jessica Chastain's supportive smile attested to the great love Spencer has accrued with her performance, one that also earned her an Oscar also.
