Allison Janney is staid to win her first Golden Globe this weekend, interjection to her formidable opening as Tonya Harding’s mom in “I, Tonya.” Maybe now people will commend her.
Despite being 6 feet high and having won 7 Emmys during a career travelling 30 years, Janney tells us that she goes neglected on the street.
“I will go to a grill and the waitress will go, ‘I feel like we know you. Do you eat here a lot?’” she told us at the Carney Awards in Los Angeles.
Janney may be best famous for her seven-year army as C.J. Cregg on “The West Wing,” which went off the air in 2006. The 58-year-old star interjection being “a impression actor” for her relations anonymity and tells us that even when she is recognized, people can’t put their finger on where they saw her.
“People will come up to you ask, ‘What did we see you in?’ and they wish you to list your resume,” she said. “It is funny. A lot of people don’t watch TV or they know me from theater. we still like we am comparatively unrecognizable.”
It’s even better for Janney when she goes overseas.
“I was just in Scotland and England,” she said. “I walked around with a disguise of anonymity. It was fantastic.”
No one has ever mistaken Janney for a Mother of the Year candidate. And Golden Globe or not, she doesn’t design to be asked for parenting tips by filmgoers who see her personification Harding’s mom LaVona Golden.

“Bonnie has a big heart,” she said.
