Allison Janney received an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Sunday at the 2015 awards show. She received the statue for CBS’ “Mom,” in which she plays Bonnie, a mother who is a recovering drug and alcohol addict.
The comedian, who has won six Primetime Emmys in her career, thanked her cast, crew, writers and family. She even started to sing her thanks at one point. However, Janney, 55, also took a moment to talk about how “Mom” handles storylines with recovering addicts.
“One serious thing -- so many lives are touched by addiction. It is a privilege to work on a show that reminds us that there is hope, lots of hope,” Janney said. “Thank you so much for this.”
