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

Allison Jannehy Oscar Win

Most winners at Sunday night's 90th Academy Awards began their speeches with a laundry list of names to thank. "I think I started working and was not able to go to those classes".

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

If anything, this is a amusing take on Kerrigan's perceived "princess" persona from the Harding-Kerrigan saga three decades ago. "I kind of loved it; as much as it was irritating me, it was also fueling me as I was trying to get my side of the story across".

"It's liberating to play a character like this and have such a transformation", Janney has said.

The former West Wing star has had an incredible awards season sweep, having also won best supporting actress awards at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Awards, and SAG Awards. My heart broke a little for her watching these interviews because you can see underneath the denial of the hurt that's there.

It's been quite a road for Janney: During her college days at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, she was directed by one of its noted alumni on stage: Paul Newman, who along with wife Joanne Woodward encouraged Janney to continue on with her pursuit of acting.

She threw them off again.

"I am so happy that I have a job to go to after something like this because it can go to your head", she said. "I have to be a table read for "Mom" at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning". "I'm happy to have the people at Mom to keep me going and keep me focused".

Earlier in the week, Janney said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that she had never been to the Oscars, even though she had been invited before. She recently starred on Broadway SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION for which she received a Tony Award nomination. I gotta give him a good present.

At the Oscars, Allison was nominated alongside Lady Bird's Laurie Metcalf, Phantom Thread's Lesley Manville, The Shape of Water's Octavia Spencer, and Mudbound's Mary J Blige.
