Oscars 2018: Allison Janney wins Best Supporting Actress

Allison Janney

Actress Allison Janney took home her first Oscar in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category for her powerful performance in I, TONYA at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony here.

After a long pause and a laugh, she added: "There is nothing further from the truth".

She then went on to name the "I, Tonya" castmates she calls "family", including Robbie, "cast and crew and bird" for elevating her work. My heart broke a little for her watching these interviews because you can see underneath the denial of the hurt that's there.

In a lovely moment, Allison dedicated her win to her late brother Hal who tragically died after he commited suicide in 2011.

The Oscar win continues her awards show sweep this year, with honors that include a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, a SAG Award, and an Independent Spirit Award.

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. "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".

However, ICE no longer exempts classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. Justice Department was reviewing Schaaf's warning about the Bay Area ICE raids .

"I'm happy to have a job after something like this because it can go to your head".

Here's what the Twitterverse had to say about Janney's first Oscar nomination and win. She didn't want to go until she was nominated.

"This is for Hal", Janney said.

Janney previously opened up about her younger brother's struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, which inspired her to take the role of recovering addict Bonnie on the sitcom Mom. "I thought this is exactly the kind of humor that is ideal for this movie".

"I will never be able to repay him", she said. "I kind of love that I have something to do tomorrow no matter what because [my Mom co-stars and crew] all love me there and they will love me no matter what happens".
