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

Allison Janney

She's won seven Emmys and a Golden Globe and tonight Allison Janney finally took home her first Oscar for playing Tonya Harding's abusive and hysterically outspoken mom LaVona in I, Tonya. However, she quickly showed her earnest side, sharing, "There's nothing further from the truth". "You nailed my mother, ' and I didn't know what to say ... so I just gave her a hug and I said, 'I'm so sorry you had that kind of an environment when you were growing up'". Janney then raced through an extensive list of thank-yous.

She won almost every major award she'd been nominated for leading up to the Oscars, including a BAFTA, a Screen Actors Guild award, a Golden Globe and a Critics' Choice prize. "I'll never be able thank him", said Janney, who mused gift ideas while onstage.

Hal took his own life on February 14, 2011 after battling depression and addiction.

She threw them off again.

The Oscar is the actress' first. "I am going right back to work and I am so happy to have a job to go to, because this could go to your head", Janney said. "And it's going to be -- I'm going to have a big crash down after this". She recently starred on Broadway SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION for which she received a Tony Award nomination.

"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.

Asked what her inner-critic, which she has previously said she uses to guide her, would say to her now, Janney said: "Bravo".

Janney beat out Mary J. Blige for "Mudbound", Lesley Manville for "Phantom Thread", Laurie Metcalf for "Lady Bird", and Octavia Spencer for "The Shape of Water".

"I am going right back to work", Janney told International Business Times and other outlets in the press interview room.
