Since the world devoured Allison Janney's brilliantly acidic performance as Tonya Harding's abusive mother in "I, Tonya", she has won almost every major award she's been up for, including a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild award, a Golden Globe and a Critics' Choice prize.

The 58-year-old actor, who was a front-runner for the recognition at the 90th Academy Awards, scored her maiden trophy today which was her first nomination in the category. She won Emmys for both roles in the same year and won a second Emmy for Mom the following year.

"I did it all by myself", Janney jokingly began.

After taking a moment, she added, "Nothing further from the truth". I did not see this coming, you did.

"I kind of didn't dare to have dreams like this, because I didn't want to be disappointed", Janney told reporters backstage while clutching her Oscar.




"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.

"I never assume anything and I'm nervous and excited", she told Wilkins. "She's this quirky, odd woman with so much anger and so much resentment". "I had to give her depth and realise that she had to have come from an abusive family herself", she says. "I bow down to her". With an arts background - her mother Macy performed in theatre; her father Jervis played jazz - Janney veered towards acting. "You're always in my heart", she said.

Roles came swiftly. Gracing TV shows As the World Turns and Law & Order, she made her movie breakthrough in films like Big Night and Mike Nichols's political drama Primary Colors, which proved crucial.

The West Wing alum bested fellow nominees Laurie Metcalf, Mary J. Blige, Lesley Manville, and Octavia Spencer, humbly accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress during her speech, which was eloquent, funny, and succinct.

She presently plays a recovering alcoholic mother, Bonnie Plunkett on the CBS sitcom Mom.
