Raised in Oakwood, Janney plays the no-holds-barred Bonnie Plunkett on CBS' "Mom."

Plunkett deals with her own addictions and lives with a daughter who’s a recovering alcoholic and a single mom (Anna Faris).

When did she get the other awards?

Janney won for the role on "Mom" last year in addition to winning an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Margaret Scully on the Showtime series "Masters of Sex."

Janney won four of her Emmy awards as Dayton native C.J. Cregg on "The West Wing."

Fellow Daytonian Martin Sheen (Ramón Estévez) also starred in the NBC drama.
