After winning the best supporting actress Oscar on Sunday for her turn as the hard-as-nails, chain-smoking mother of Tonya Harding in "I, Tonya", Janney began her speech by joking that she "did it all by myself".

While she's won seven Emmy awards (including four for The West Wing) and been twice nominated for Tonys for her work on Broadway, this is the first time - at 58 - that she's really been in the spotlight in Oscar season.

A seven-time Primetime Emmy Award victor for her television work, the actor's breakout role was as White House Press Secretary-turned-Chief of Staff C J Cregg on the NBC drama The West Wing (1999-2006).

Janney then credited her co-stars, the others who worked on the film, her family, and even the bird who almost stole the show from its perch on Janney's shoulder in "I, Tonya".

"Nothing further from the truth", she clarified, in case anyone hadn't picked up on her wonderful use of sarcasm.

"She's here. I already asked her". I love you. And this is for Hal.

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

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

Acknowledging her fellow nominees, she said: "You represent everything that is good and right about this profession". "I bow down to her".

Janney concluded, "To my mother and father, Jay, my family, my family of friends..."

"I was around the world of recovery a lot, trying to get my brother to want to recover", Janney told CBS News in 2016.

As for who she'd like to work with on a future project, Janney replied without hesitation: "Helen Mirren". "You're always in my heart", she said. He had two demands for whoever was going to help get the movie made: First, no one was allowed to rewrite him.

Janney beat Mary J. Blige ('Mudbound'), Lesley Manville ('Phantom Thread'), Laurie Metcalf ('Lady Bird'), and Octavia Spencer ('The Shape of Water').
