Boston-born actress Allison Janney brought home the Oscar for best supporting actress for her transformative work in the Tonya Harding pic "I, Tonya". "I'm over 50 and I've been playing some pretty kick-ass women and I think there are going to be more women's roles in the future", Janney shared. It was his story that inspired Allison to take on a role in the CBS show Mom, in which she plays a recovering addict. "I love you", she added.
The ear-nibbling parakeet named Little Man "elevated my work", Janney said. Janney won almost every major award she'd been nominated for leading up to the Oscars, including a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild award, a Golden Globe and a Critics' Choice prize.
When Janney arrived backstage to an interview room to talk with reporters, she promptly removed her shoes.
She threw them off again.
"We're just so happy for her", Janney's father Jervis told the Dayton Daily News by phone shortly after she won.
"I'm going to have a big crash-down after this so I'm happy I have the people on Mom to lift me up and keep me going and keep me focused".

She said she "didn't dare to dream of things like this" earlier in her career because she did not want to be disappointed. She recently starred on Broadway SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION for which she received a Tony Award nomination.
"This is for Hal", the actress said in her acceptance speech.
The actress said she was grateful to "I, Tonya" screenwriter Steven Rogers. I gotta give him a good present.
"I am so happy that I have a job to go to after something like this because it could go to your head, and then tomorrow to wake up and feel -- and have nothing to do and have this whole journey be over", Janney explained.
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.
