Oscars: Allison Janney dedicates her win to her late brother Hal Janney

Closecourtesy of the Academy

The 58-year-old actress added to a successful few months that has seen her win a Golden Globe, BAFTAs, Critics" Choice award and Screen Actors Guild award for her role in "I, Tonya" by picking up the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award on Sunday (03.04.18), but she won't be letting success go to her head and was looking forward to returning to the set of her TV show "Mom'. Featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, a mustachioed Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, a tour-de-force performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden, and an original screenplay by Steven Rogers, Craig Gillespie's I, TONYA is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked-and checkered-glory.

Backstage at Hollywood & Highland Center, Janney opened up about her speech and if she'll change post Academy Award win.

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

Allison Janney even gave credit to the bird. "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. "You're always in my heart". "My feet are bleeding", she deadpanned.

President Roch Marc Christian Kabore stated, "Our country was once again the target of dark forces". The violence began mid-morning when heavy gunfire broke out in the centre of the Burkinabe capital.

"I am going right back to work", Janney told International Business Times and other outlets in the press interview room. "I want to look at him for a while when I wake up, and be happy for myself and be proud of what happened".

Janney beat out Octavia Spencer, Laurie Metcalf, Lesley Manville, and Mary J. Blige.

"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.
