Janney gave particular thanks to "I, Tonya" star Margot Robbie as well as a very special guest in the audience: Tonya Harding herself, in the ballroom for the ceremony.

"Thank you so much I appreciate being on your show, but I think I'm going to have to say have a good night", she told him. "My movie is going to reach so many people to get them to ask for help. It took me so long to be able to ask for people to help me".

It was reported earlier in January that Harding admitted she was aware of a plot to attack Kerrigan ahead of the 1994 Olympic Games.

Harding confessed she was aware of a plot to attack Kerrigan in an explosive new TV documentary Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story, but denied playing any part in planning the brutal assault, plotted by her husband and bodyguard.

"You're going to end the interview because I think Nancy is the victim, not you?" he retorted.

The lack of basic details surrounding the launch is highly unusual even compared to SpaceX's national-security launches. Falcon Heavy was vertical on the Kennedy Space Center launch pad 39A last week for the first time.

But others were prepared to defend Harding, pointing out she did not carry out the attack on Kerrigan and noting she too had suffered at the hands of abusive men.

"She did a frightful, terrible thing", the Olympian figure skater told TMZ after reporters asked him to sound off on Harding's apparent comeback. "But I think the victim in all this wasn't you. I'm here to talk about the future and what it means", Harding told Morgan. Morgan pressed. "You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was pure coincidence?"

Janney, who won the award for "Best Supporting Actress" for her (absolutely incredible) portrayal of Harding's mother, even dedicated the honor to Harding while on stage accepting the trophy. Harding then explained that he wasn't letting her finish what she had to say about victims of abuse.

Morgan then abruptly ended the interview soon after. The film has received critical acclaim and has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award, in the best musical or comedy motion picture category.
