Allison Janney wins Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role
 
(Los Angeles, Mar 5, 2018): For Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar winner Allison Janney, mom is the word as the actor took home her first golden knight for the portrayal of an abusive, pushy and ambitious mother in ?I, Tonya?.

The 58-year-old actor, who was a front-runner for the recognition at the 90th Academy Awards, scored her maiden trophy today which was her first nomination in the category.

Names such as Mary J Blige (?Mudbound?), Lesley Manville (?Phantom Thread?), Laurie Metcalfe (?Lady Bird?) and Octavia Spencer (?The Shape of Water?) were also vying for the title.

Janney was presented the trophy by last years Best Supporting Actor winner Mahershala Ali.
"I did it all by myself," she said as the audience broke into a laughter.

"Ok, nothing further from the truth," she said as she proceeded to thank her fellow nominees, her movies team and her parents.

Janney had already won a Golden Globe, a SAG-AFTRA, a CCA and a Bafta for the role of infamous American figure skater, Tonya Harding?s mother LaVona Fay Golden, who raised her daughter with a feeling that she was a ?good-for-nothing?.

The sports drama is a biopic on real-life Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding based on the true events, which saw Tonyas now-ex-husband Jeff Gilooly plot with her self-appointed bodyguard, Shawn Eckhardt, to take out her rival Nancy Kerrigan to pave the way for her spot on the US team.

Interestingly, Janney harboured dreams of becoming an Olympic figure skater, but was unable to realise the dream when she smashed through a sliding glass window when she was 17.

Janneys LaVona, who is a diner waitress by profession, is a foul-mouthed smoker who can push a young Tonya off her chair and even throw a knife at her adult version in Margot Robbie to prove her point to her daughter.

The actor has earlier described her part as a "distinct, unique mother of a character", a role for which she has repeatedly thanked her Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre classmate and friend Steven Rogers, the screenwriter of the sports drama.

In her 34-year-long career across television, films and theatre, Janney has also featured in films such as "10 Things I Hate About You", "Finding Nemo", "Juno", "Finding Dory" and "The Girl on the Train" among others.

A seven-time Primetime Emmy Award winner for her television work, the actors breakout role was as White House Press Secretary-turned-Chief of Staff C J Cregg on the NBC drama "The West Wing" (1999?2006). She presently plays a recovering alcoholic mother, Bonnie Plunkett on the CBS sitcom "Mom".(PTI)
