Allison Janney thanks long-time St. Paul resident in Oscar acceptance speech

Allison has picked up the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in *I Tonya

The I, Tonya actress plays the gritty chain-smoking mom of Tonya Harding in the film, but she cleaned up in a red-hot Reem Acra gown to accept her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday. The actress and wife of the late Paul Newman was, in fact, the inspiration for the now Oscar victor to keep plugging along in Hollywood.

Luckily for Janney she credits her crew at "Mom", which now airs Thursdays on CBS, for keeping her grounded.

"I did it all by myself", Janney joked at the opening of her acceptance speech. "I'm just happy to have a job to go to tomorrow, but this is extraordinary". "I thought this is exactly the kind of humor that is flawless for this movie. They really mentored me in a way that really made a difference in my life". Bitter, resentful and violent, LaVona has an abusive relationship with her daughter that is shockingly painful to watch. "Truly not a very nurturing woman", says Janney, putting it mildly. "Good going girl, I'm proud of you".

Central Michigan University shooting: Here's what we know
Davis allegedly escaped from the dormitory on foot, leading to a campus lockdown and a citywide manhunt for the alleged shooter. Yeagley said Davis Jr . appeared to be hypothermic and was not making sense, so police transported him to an area hospital .

Janney has been working the Oscar awards circuit for months, even attending and winning best supporting actress at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday.

"She's going to do a lot more".

Making The West Wing, Janney relocated to California after years on the East Coast, but working on the show made her love life hard. She still hasn't found "the one".

"Joanne Woodward, thank you for your encouragement and generosity that gave me the confidence to think I could pursue a career in acting". "I thought this is exactly the kind of humor that is flawless for this movie".

Janney was distraught about not being able to have met her subject. What kind of upbringing did she have?

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. And, perhaps most importantly: What did she want to do when she was growing up? She had a coach and her parents would get up at dawn to take her to the rink, which was owned by her real-estate broker father.
