Group Watch 3/28/2012: Hollywood Comes to Town

Montgomery native and Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer was greeted by hundreds as she arrived at the Alabama Statehouse to a hero’s welcome. She arrived in a pink limousine for joint session of the Legislature in her honor. She was serenaded by the band from her alma mater, Jefferson Davis High School. Earlier this year, she won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in the movie “The Help.” Spencer told the crowd that she would do whatever she could to see that more movies are made in Alabama. This week, a Senate committee approved a House-passed bill to raise the limit of tax credits to filmmakers making movies in Alabama from $10 million to $15 million.
