Oscars: Allison Janney Wins First Academy Award for 'I, Tonya'

She said: "He wrote this for me to do just that, to show a different side of me and what I can do".

After the raucous laughs died down, the OH native said there could be "nothing further from the truth".

"It's like the bird heard me and said, 'Oh yeah?' Let's see if you can ignore me when I'm putting my head in your ear, '" Janney told The Associated Press last month.

"I love the kinds of women's roles that I get to play".

The big win is a first for Janney, who was filled with nervous, excited energy when she took the stage to accept the award, but still found the fortitude to deliver one of the funniest jokes of the night. "You are always in my heart", she said.

This is while the Taliban had repeatedly declared that it will not enter talks until the US-led foreign troops leave the country. The attack highlighted the risk of risk of terrorism and insurgent groups to the stability of Afghanistan, she said.

She won her seventh Emmy in 2015 - again for Mom - to tie with Edward Asner and Mary Tyler Moore for second most by a performer, behind Cloris Leachman and Julia Louis-Dreyfus on eight.

Here's what the Twitterverse had to say about Janney's first Oscar nomination and win. "I think I started working and was not able to go to those classes. I'm going to have a big crash-down after this so I'm happy to have the folks of "Mom" to lift me up". None of us thought it would go on - not because it wasn't brilliant but because it was about politics and who wants to watch a show about politics?

"I did it all by myself", she said, barely suppressing a laugh, before adding there would be "nothing further from the truth".

Asked what her inner-critic, which she has previously said she uses to guide her, would say to her now, Janney said: "Bravo". "At a certain point I had given up thinking this could happen to me".

"I just wasn't given the kind of roles on film that would give me attention like this".

"I didn't even know it was going to be a series".
