"The Help," the box-office hit that features performances from Tony Award winner Viola Davis and Tony nominee Allison Janney, will receive this year's Hollywood Ensemble Acting Award at the 15th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The DreamWorks film, co-written and directed by Tate Taylor, is adapted from Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel of the same name. "The Help" centers around three very different women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship from a secret writing project based on the experiences of African-American maids that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

"The Help," which was released Aug. 10, has earned over $150 million worldwide since its release.

Previous casts honored with the Ensemble Award include "The Secret Life of Bees" (2008), Best Picture Oscar nominee "The Social Network" (2010) and the movie-musical Hairspray (2007). For more information, visit www.hollywoodawards.com.
