Los Angeles : Reliance Group chairman Anil Ambani walked the red carpet at the 84th Academy Awards at the Kodak Theater here Sunday, where three films produced by DreamWorks Studios, his co-venture with Steven Speilberg, were nominated for 11 Oscars.

Among the 11 nominations, Octavia Spencer fetched the Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in "The Help". Spencer was honoured with the golden statuette for her portrayal of big-mouthed maid Minny in "The Help".

Other than "The Help", two other films of Reliance DreamWorks -- "War Horse" and "Real Steel" -- were nominated for various categories. "War Horse" and "The Help" were in the fray for best film award, which went to black and white silent film "The Artist".
