Octavia Spencer took home the Oscar for best supporting actress last night at the Academy Awards. “The Help” star looked positively radiant in her Tadashi Shoji & Neil Lane gown.

Actually, if you gave it long sleeves and a plunging neckline, you could say it has quite a bit in common with Jennifer Lopez’s dazzling gown. It has the same sparkly silver glimmer and gathered look around the waist.

When Spencer won the Golden Globe for the same performance, she quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in her acceptance speech. She said, “With regard to domestics in this country, now and then, I think Dr. King said it best: ‘All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance.’ And I thank you for recognizing that with our film.”

While many had concerns that the film didn’t go far enough in its portrayal of the real life difficulties women of color went through as domestic workers in the south during that time, millions were indeed inspired by the courage of Minnie, Spencer’s character. And obviously the voters agreed.

See below for the actress’s fabulous gown. We’re sure that little gold man makes the perfect accessory. Having costar Viola Davis by your side sure helps too.
