NAACP Image Awards: Octavia Spencer Takes a Fall

At her latest stop on the awards show circuit, Octavia Spencer found herself in need of a little help.

While posing for pictures at Friday's NAACP Image Awards, Spencer lost her footing and took a spill off the stage.

But the actress, who stunned in a floor-length blue Tadashi Shoji gown, was back on her feet in no time after getting a hand from her The Help cast mates and crew (one of whom appeared to tumble with her).

Despite her fall, the actress walked away from Los Angeles's Shrine Auditorium on top: She took home honors for her supporting role in the period drama, which has been one of the most decorated films of the red carpet season.

Her film also earned the top honor of the night, winning best film, and costar Viola Davis was awarded the lead actress prize.

Perhaps Spencer will make a red-carpet comeback next week at the Academy Awards, in which she's up for honors again in the Best Supporting Actress category.
