(John Delia)  12/12/2011 7:33 PM EDT
Now on Blu-ray/DVD The Help hits the street on Tuesday December 6th and it has all the ear-markings of becoming the hottest item of the holiday season.  My prediction for this film at the Oscars include nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, 2 Best Supporting Actress, Costumes and Musical Score.  It should do equally as well at the G...
