Allison Janney wins best supporting actress Oscar for I, Tonya

Allison Janney, 58, flaunts figure in sensational dress at Oscars Red Carpet 2018

Allison Janney took home her first Oscar at the 90th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, and the actress has a special place in mind for the coveted golden statuette.

"This couldn't be further from the truth".

Janney then credited her co-stars, the others who worked on the film, her family, and even the bird who almost stole the show from its perch on Janney's shoulder in "I, Tonya".

Though a first for her, the Oscar is just another addition to Janney's trophy case of awards she has won this season including a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award, Critics' Choice Award and Independent Spirit Award for her role as Tonya Harding's allegedly abusive mother.

She recently starred on Broadway SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION for which she received a Tony Award nomination. She attended Kenyon College, in Gambier.

Luckily for Janney she credits her crew at "Mom", which now airs Thursdays on CBS, for keeping her grounded. "We're just so happy for her".

"I never assume anything and I'm nervous and excited", she told Wilkins.

Janney plays Harding's vile mother, LaVona Fay Golden.

Backstage, Janney said she "didn't dare to dream of things like this because I didn't want to be disappointed".

"I know what it takes in my small way, what kind of commitment it is and what it means to get up at 5am and drive someone to ice skating. I kind of loved it; as much as it was irritating me, it was also fueling me as I was trying to get my side of the story across".

"It's liberating to play a character like this and have such a transformation", Janney has said.

"She's going to do a lot more. You're always in my heart", she said of her brother who killed himself on February 14, 2011. She sees herself as a woman who tried her hardest to give her daughter a better life than she had.
