Allison Janney puts her spin on ice-skating scandal in 'I, Tonya'

Allison Janney puts her spin on ice-skating scandal in 'I, Tonya'

It starts off at breakneck speed and doesn't look back, as the film and its characters bulldoze their way through Tonya's ascension to the top of the US figure skating team in short zippy, amusing scenes that are backed by a catchy soundtrack. Elevated by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney's shimmering performances, this entertaining account of those unusual events earns the sort of high marks for creative interpretation that its protagonist complained eluded her.

The biopic "I, Tonya" has the infamous Olympian Tonya Harding back in the spotlight, but it sounds like she doesn't hate it. Meanwhile, host Ellen DeGeneres also gave her rave reviews, telling Janney that she is sure to get nominated for an Oscar. Hear the musical results of Stevens's meditations of the Olympic skater in the player below. I had a coach, I worked really hard, and I trained early in the morning and after school and I was obsessed with it.

Ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan suffered a broken leg, keeping her out of the games.

Janney plays LaVona Harding, who bullies and beats her young daughter to reach the top of a sport.

(L-R) Craig Gillespie, Sebastian Stan, Steven Rogers, Allison Janney, Tonya Harding, Paul Walter Hauser, Margot Robbie and Tom Quinn attend the after party for the premiere of "I, Tonya" on December 5, 2017 in Hollywood, California. She sort of brushed it off in a way that made me think "Wow".

Harding wore several memorable costumes during her career in the 1990s, which came to an end after an attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan. "I don't think we exonerate her completely, but I don't think she is as guilty as we all remember her to have been", she said.
