Best Costumes Write-in: The Help

The Help, my favorite movie of 2011, received several major Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark), and Best Supporting Actress (Jessica Chastain as Celia Foote), but I was a little surprised that it didn't receive a nomination for Best Costumes. The costumes and visuals of Mississippi in the 1960s really brought it to life.

I just finished the book after seeing the movie when it first came out! Even ever than the movie.. But I agree with you about the costumes - they definitely should deserved a nomination!

I don't know which I liked better, the book or the movie. I loved them both for such different reasons.
