Why Helen is very excited about being nominated for an award

In a recent pottery session, Helen shared what was on her mind. She explains why The Checkers being nominated for a Marjorie Newton Wright award is so important to her and how it makes her feel. As we have heard in previous films, being recognised for achievements is extremely important to people and feedback from the people in our lives cannot be underestimated.
