The crowd attending the Oscars Award laughed and cheered when talented actress Allison Janney delivered her humorous best-supporting actress acceptance speech at Sunday evening's Oscar Awards held on 4th March 2018.
She took home the best-supporting-actress trophy Sunday night performing the role of Tonya's mother in the movie I, Tonya. And it's no doubt that she's always supported by her family and her loving beau, Philip Joncas whom she's been dating since 2015. But rumors have that they might not be together. Is this true? Let's get details about her recent success along with her less known dating life in today's session.
Allison Janney's Oscar Win Speech: 'I had given up thinking this could happen to me'
Allison Janney already has a trophy case full of awards: a total of seven Primetime Emmys and a Golden Globe, and this time, she managed herself to get an Oscar!
The Mom and West Wing diva looked really happy during the acceptance speech on Sunday evening's Oscar Awards. During the event, the I, Tonya star revealed that she had nearly abandoned her hopes of winning the golden statue.

She thanked the movie's screenwriter Steven Rogers for giving her the role of Tonya Harding's mother, LaVona "Sandy" Golden.
She explained her success story to the reporters in the Oscars press room. She said,
"I kind of didn’t dare to dream of things like this because I didn’t want to be disappointed."
I think at a certain point I had given up thinking this would happen for me because I just wasn’t given the kind of roles in the film that would get attention like this. And that’s what my very good friend Steven Rogers did for me."
She further added,
"He wrote this for me to do just that, to show a different side of me and show what I could do. And I will never be able to repay him, it’s an extraordinary gift he gave, it’s kind of overwhelming. I think I’m going to get him a Rolex and engrave it on the back. I think that’s a start."
She will now be known as an Oscar-winning actress after the major event.
Right after the win, the actress stated that she will get right back to work on the series Mom that premiered back in 2013 and is still running.
