Tonya Harding Texted Allison Janney After Her Oscar Nomination For 'I, Tonya'

By Erica Diaz

Allison Janney has never been nominated for an Oscar before, and she just got her first nod for her role as LaVona, Tonya Harding's abusive mother, in the film I, Tonya. Janney had plenty of people to celebrate with. A group of her family and friends flew in from New York to surprise her. And there was one other person who surprised her with a celebratory text — Tonya Harding. It may seem odd or painful to celebrate a woman's portrayal of your abuser, but the pair don't hold any animosity towards one another. 

In fact, their relationship is quite pleasant!

Allison called in to the PeopleTV nominations show and revealed that Tonya texted her congratulations. The text read: 

You're going to the big top, girl!
