“I didn’t dare to dream of things like this because I didn’t want to be disappointed,” she said, adding that at one point she “had given up” because she wasn’t getting the roles that would allow her to flex her acting muscles.
“But [‘I, Tonya’ writer] Steven Rogers did that for me, which allowed me to show a different side of me and show what I could do,” she continued. “It’s an extraordinary gift he’s given to me. I think I’m going to get him a Rolex and engrave it on the back.”
Still, she’s not going to allow the Oscar win to alter her work ethic in any way.
“I have to be at a table read for ’Mom’ at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning so I’m going right back to work,” she said, referencing the CBS sitcom in which she stars. “I’m happy to have a job after something like this because it can go to your head. I’m going to have a big crash-down after this so I’m happy to have the folks of ’Mom’ to lift me up.”
