Oscar-winner Octavia's home honour
Octavia Spencer has been honoured in her hometown
Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer has been honoured at the Alabama Statehouse, where about 400 people turned out to welcome her back to her hometown.
Octavia won this year's best supporting actress Oscar for her performance as a maid in The Help.
She rode up to the Statehouse in a pink limousine for the ceremony. As she stepped out, she was serenaded by the band from her old school.
Octavia told the crowd that she would do whatever she could to see that more movies are made in Alabama.
She also cautioned young people in the audience to think twice before heading to Hollywood to become a movie star.
