". Joanne (Woodward) was so instrumental in getting me to come to NY to go to the Neighborhood Playhouse-which is where she had graduated-and she got me in there, I know, and made sure I got into the Actors Studio, which I never took advantage of because, I don't know why", she said. "I'm over 50 and I've been playing some pretty kick-ass women and I think there are going to be more women's roles in the future", Janney shared.

After the raucous laughs died down, she said there could be "nothing further from the truth". "I love you", she added.

Here's what the Twitterverse had to say about Janney's first Oscar nomination and win.

The former West Wing star has had an incredible awards season sweep, having also won best supporting actress awards at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Awards, and SAG Awards.

And she's happy for it.

But all that changed when friend and screenwriter Steven Rogers wrote the part around Janney.

Asked if her day-to-day life might change now that she's an Oscar victor, Janney said she had to go right back to work at 10 a.m. Monday for a table read for her CBS sitcom "Mom". "I'm going to have a big crash-down after this so I'm happy that I have "Mom" and the people at "Mom" to lift me up".

"This one is in my bed with me", Janney explained, when asked if she had a spot already picked out for her shiny new hardware. Her other Broadway credits include 9TO 5, A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE and PRESENT LAUGHTER. "I want to look at him for a while when I wake up, and be happy for myself and be proud of what happened".

She was in the race to win the coveted trophy with Mary J. Blige (MUDBOUND), Lesley Manville (PHANTOM THREAD), Laurie Metcalfe (LADY BIRD) and Octavia Spencer (THE SHAPE OF WATER).
