Allison Janney wins Oscar for playing Tonya Harding's harsh mother

Celebrities, fans react to Allison Janney's first Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress Oscars 2018: Allison Janney wins Best Supporting Actress
Rosie Leonard | 06 March, 2018, 02:52

Oscar-winning actress Allison Janney is pictured in the press room of the 90th Annual Academy Awards Governors Ball at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4, 2018 in Hollywood, California. The star of stage and screen, looking glam in heels and a mauve dress, has just endured a furniture malfunction midway through a photoshoot. I love you. And this is for Hal. "It was a very eye-opening moment".

Los Angeles- "I did it all by myself". She resumes her seat, smoothing her blonde locks. She has won seven Emmys for her roles on the NBC drama "The West Wing" and the CBS comedy "Mom".

The Academy Awards seem like formality when it comes to the best supporting actress category this year. And this weekend she will compete for the first Oscar of her career.

". Joanne (Woodward) was so instrumental in getting me to come to NY to go to the Neighborhood Playhouse-which is where she had graduated-and she got me in there, I know, and made sure I got into the Actors Studio, which I never took advantage of because, I don't know why", she said.

Her recently released movies include Tallulah, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, The Girl on the Train, Minions and Spy. So it's a new thing for me.

Janney plays LaVona Golden based mostly on watching documentary footage of Harding's acerbic mother.

"She's going to do a lot more. That's a good start", she said. "She was extraordinary on the page and a huge character, and I knew my job was to ground her in reality".

Janney was born in Boston and raised in Oakwood, a suburb of Dayton. "Those scenes helped me find her humanity, helped me find what made her a human being, not just an on the page monster".

Allison Janney even thanked the bird. Fortunately, she had other dreams. What were her mother and father like? "They've been so supportive of me".

Janney accepts the award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role for I, Tonya at the Oscars.

Then she quickly put them back on to show everyone that "usually the dress looks like this". "Do you play CJ?' I couldn't believe I got recognised there". She's a woman who gave her whole life to her daughter. "It's hard to go on a dating service when you've been on TV", she sighs. And she found the nuance behind the steely exterior. "I'm not married yet - I'm open to the possibility but I'm not sure about that right now".

Janney was distraught about not being able to have met her subject.

"Maybe it will", she nods. We'll see what happens.
