LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- The cast of the movie "The Help" is to be honored at the 15th annual Hollywood Film Awards gala, organizers said Tuesday.

Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney, Chris Lowell, Ahna O'Reilly, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, Sissy Spacek, Mary Steenburgen, Cicely Tyson and Mike Vogel are to be recognized with the Hollywood Ensemble Acting Award Oct. 24 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Based on the best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett, "The Help" tells the story of Aibileen and Skeeter, "two very different, extraordinary women who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them both at risk at the height of the civil rights movement in 1960s Mississippi," the festival organizers said in a news release.
