She was joined by the star who played her, Margot Robbie in her new movie I, Tonya which highlights Harding’s life before, during, and after the attack that made history. Many were questioning why Harding was allowed such praise and shine at the Golden Globes when despite being a victim of abuse, she still contributed to Nancy Kerrigan’s attack.

Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress, and during her acceptance speech she said, ” Tonya Harding is here tonight.” She continued, “I would just like to thank Tonya for sharing her story.” The cameras immediately shined a spotlight on Harding as celebrities gave her a round of applause. People around her were shocked to see her, but it added to Janney’s speech. Janney stated, ” What this movie did is tell a story about class in America, tell a story about the disenfranchised, tell the story about a woman who was not embraced for her individuality, tell a story about the truth and the perception of truth in the media and truths we all tell ourselves.”

Janney ended her acceptance speech saying she is very proud of the movie and how extraordinary it is.
