The actresses win big at this year's Critics' Choice Awards.
With the 2012 red carpet season well underway, it looks like "The Help" stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer are the women to beat.
The two scooped Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress awards, respectively, at last night's Critics' Choice Awards in Los Angeles. The film itself won for Best Acting Ensemble.
