Allison Janney took home her first Oscar at the 90th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, and the actress has a special place in mind for the coveted golden statuette.

With the Oscar win secured, the actress said she was getting right back to work on the program Mom on Monday morning.

While it's been a busy award season for Janney, who earned rave reviews for her role as LaVona, the tough-love mother of Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding, played by Margot Robbie, she said she's grateful not to have a break.

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". "My fellow nominees, you represent everything that is good and right and human about this profession and you are all extraordinary", she gushed.

Janney 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.

Authorities later found she was aware of the plan, and she was banned from the sport for life.

As Forbes reported last month, Janney met Newman and Woodward when she was a student at Kenyon College. Janney added. "And Patti LuPone is going to be on our show, so I get to be with her tomorrow".

Toys "R" Us and electronics chain Maplin have collapsed in the United Kingdom , putting a combined 5,300 retail jobs at risk. Maplin employs just over 2,300 staff at more than 200 stores, selling electronics, tech toys and smart-home devices.

She threw them off again.

Ever since the film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and was quickly acquired by NEON/30 WEST, Janney has been considered a near-lock for the Best Supporting Actress.

"I think I'm going to give him a Rolex". She recently starred on Broadway SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION for which she received a Tony Award nomination.

"I kind of didn't dare to have dreams like this, because I didn't want to be disappointed", Janney told reporters backstage while clutching her Oscar. "She's this quirky, odd woman with so much anger and so much resentment".

She also supplied the voice of the pink starfish Peach in the Pixar animated adventure Finding Dory, that year's largest-grossing movie, and appeared in two of 2015's biggest hits, the live-action caper Spy and animated comedy Minions. Her other Broadway credits include 9TO 5, A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE and PRESENT LAUGHTER.

Richard Schiff, who played White House communications chief Toby Ziegler in The West Wing, recently described Janney as "the most wonderful talent to grace large screen and small".

Los Angeles- "I did it all by myself".
