Allison Janney on Oscar Win: 'I Did It All by Myself

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

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

Allison Janney has just won the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in I, TONYA.

After a long pause and a laugh, she added: "There is nothing further from the truth".

The ear-nibbling parakeet named Little Man "elevated my work", Janney said.

Perhaps the only surprising fact is that this is the first Oscar nomination ever for the 58-year-old actress, who has seven Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Awards to her name (and two Tony nominations).

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

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. "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".

In a attractive moment, Allison dedicated her win to her late brother Hal who tragically died after he commited suicide in 2011. "You're always in my heart", she said of her brother who killed himself on February 14, 2011.

Janney's brother, Henry "Hal" Janney, committed suicide in 2011 after battling addiction.

When Janney arrived backstage to an interview room to talk with reporters, she promptly removed her shoes. With the Oscar win secured, the actress said she was getting right back to work on the program Mom on Monday morning.

She threw them off again.

Acknowledging her fellow nominees, she said: "You represent everything that is good and right about this profession". I did not see this coming, you did.

"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".

Earlier in the week, Janney said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that she had never been to the Oscars, even though she had been invited before.

While she may be the most bilious matriarch since Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest, Janney didn't want to make her a monster.

"I've played a lot of mothers in my life", Janney, who stars as a recovering alcoholic on the CBS sitcom "Mom", said late previous year. Her films include "The Help", "The Hours", and "Juno". "She was extraordinary on the page and a huge character, and I knew my job was to ground her in reality". "I think I started working and was not able to go to those classes".
