  1. Well done, Tate.

    You deserve this recognition. Your ‘help’ made The Help what it is…enhanced by an outstanding ensemble cast telling this civil rights story.

  2. really? this script wasn’t that great and the book was pretty mediocre as well. everyone in hollywood is just sheep. follow the mediocre leader. civil rights? wow! line up the awards.

      1. When have box office or book sales *ever* equated to “quality,” much less “far from mediocre?”

        Twilight?

        The Devil Inside?

        Transformers?

        The Tyler Perry brand?
