  • Oscars 2018 Winner For Best Supporting Actress Allison Janney Gets the Trophy for'I Tonya

After winning the best supporting actress Oscar on Sunday for her turn as the hard-as-nails, chain-smoking mother of Tonya Harding in "I, Tonya", Janney began her speech by joking that she "did it all by myself". 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.

Being bed-bound is the last thing Janney needs in her already drama-packed life right now. "I'll never be able thank him", said Janney, who mused gift ideas while onstage. "I'm just happy to have a job to go to tomorrow, but this is extraordinary". "Those scenes helped me find her humanity, helped me find what made her a human being, not just an on the page monster".

Janney, who won for Best Supporting Actress for her role in I, Tonya, spoke with ET's Cameron Mathison at the Governor's Ball in Los Angeles after the big show, and she admitted that she's keeping her Oscar close.

Man reportedly shoots himself outside White House
The Secret Service also tweeted that pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the White House has been affected by the incident. Most recently, on February 23, a vehicle drove into a security barrier outside the building.

Thus the character in "I, Tonya" is based on an amalgamation of interviews, documentary footage from 1986 (in which LaVona conducts her interview with a bird on her shoulder), stories from Harding and Gillooly and some artistic license. "Good going girl, I'm proud of you".

Henry "Hal" Janney took his own life on February 14, 2011, after a battle with addiction and depression. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous, ill-conceived, and even more poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor NANCY KERRIGAN. "I thought this is exactly the kind of humor that is flawless for this movie". She had a laundry list of questions she would have wanted to ask. To my mother and father, Jay; my family; my family of friends; the staff. What happened with each of her four husbands?
