Janney played Tonya Harding's mom, LaVona Golden, in the comedic, sartorial drama, for which she's already won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award.

The 58-year-old actress was still "tingling" from the news when she spoke to ET shortly after the Oscar nominees were announced, and shared that Faris had sent her a "lovely text this morning," congratulating her on the nomination. The two will soon be celebrating their 100th episode of Mom, which airs Thursday nights on CBS.

"I just I feel like crying," Janney said of being a first-time Academy Award nominee while on the set of Mom. "It's a pretty fantastic thing to have happen in my life."

"It feels better than I ever thought it would or ever allowed myself to imagine it would be," she continued. "You know, thinking that you can't ever imagine that it'll happen for you, so you don't think about it too much, and now that it has, I feel just unbelievably happy."
