Allison Janney wins, and Tonya herself applauds

"Thank you so much but I think I'm going to have to say have a good night."

Taken aback by her decision to cut the interview short, Morgan continued to press, "You're going to end the interview, because I think that Nancy Kerrigan was the victim here and not you?"

But many are not buying that portrayal of Harding as a victim, including fellow figure skater Johnny Weir.

"I respect you for trying to ask these questions", she said, "however, I am really here just to talk about the future". "She's a pariah in our sport and she shouldn't be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody's life". The goal: To eliminate Kerrigan, her arch rival, from the upcoming Winter Olympic games.

"You weren't letting me finish", Harding argued. Shane Stant struck Nancy in the knee with a baton after she walked off the ice in January of that year during practice for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Harding said that she hoped her movie would help others, however GMB host and noted troll Piers Morgan was not about to let Harding off so easy, accusing her of playing the victim card. "I think that many people are the victims of abuse every single day and can't stand up for themselves".

Tonya Harding is passed by Nancy Kerrigan during their first practice session in 1994.

Moving forward, Harding, who ended up serving three years probation, 500 hours of community service, paying a $160,000 fine, and was slapped with a lifetime ban from competitive skating, says she's done apologizing.

"You didn't have any knowledge at all, it was pure coincidence?" he pressed. This film has earned her many award nominations for her performance, and audiences are raving about it!

Allison Janney, who plays Harding's mother in the film, saluted her after winning Best Supporting Actress.
