OH native Allison Janney wins first Oscar for 'I, Tonya'

“It would've never survived the studio system.” How Creative Control Saved “I, Tonya”

Allison Janney just won her first Oscar for her performance as LaVona Golden, Tonya Harding's cold, abusive mother in "I, Tonya" - and fans were quick to offer their congratulations to the 58-year-old actress.

The 90th award gala was held her at Dolby Theatre on Sunday night.

Janney began her acceptance speech with a joke: "I did it all by myself".

Hal took his own life on February 14, 2011 after battling depression and addiction.

"This is for Hal". You are always in my heart.

Asked what her inner-critic, which she has previously said she uses to guide her, would say to her now, Janney said: "Bravo".

Fox News notes that ICE officials are asking the Department of Justice to look into whether she broke any laws by doing so. She has said she learned of the roundup through "multiple credible sources" rather than official government channels.

"I was around the world of recovery a lot, trying to get my brother to want to recover, ' she told CBS News in 2016 about her decision to take the part in the project with Anna Faris". Other film credits include The Way, Way Back, The Help, Juno, Finding Nemo, The Hours, American Beauty, Nurse Betty, Drop Dead Gorgeous, 10 THINGS I Hate About You, Primary Colors, The Ice Storm, The Object of My Affection and Big Night.

Janney, who exclaimed that she did not see this coming, thanked her fellow nominees and said: "You represent everything that is good and right and human". "So I'm happy that I have "Mom" -- the people at "Mom" to lift me up and keep me -- keep me going and keep me focused", she said.

"And I think at a certain point I had given up thinking of this happening for me because I wasn't getting the kinds of roles in film that would give me attention like this", she said.

But all that changed when friend and screenwriter Steven Rogers wrote the part around Janney. "Good going girl, I'm proud of you".

Janney beat out Mary J. Blige for "Mudbound", Lesley Manville for "Phantom Thread", Laurie Metcalf for "Lady Bird", and Octavia Spencer for "The Shape of Water".
