PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Allison Janney will be presented the "Spotlight Award - Actress" at the Palm Springs International Film Festival's annual Film Awards Gala for her performance in "I, Tonya."
“Allison Janney delivers a knock-out performance as Tonya Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden, in 'I, Tonya.' The usually charming Janney takes a compellingly dark turn as Tonya's abusive, alcoholic mother,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “For this outstanding performance, which is sure to garner awards attention, it is an honor to present Allison Janney with the Spotlight Award.”
Janney joins previously announced 2018 honorees Timothée Chalamet, Gal Gadot, Gary Oldman and Sam Rockwell.
Allison Janney currently stars in the CBS hit comedy "Mom," and has won seven Emmys.
The Film Awards Gala, hosted by Mary Hart, will be held Tuesday, Jan. 2, at the Palm Springs Convention Center. The Festival runs from Jan. 2 to 15, 2018.
