Talking Tonys: '9 to 5' star Allison Janney

May 9, 2009 |  1:23 pm

If there are felony offenses among the Tony nominations, it's that "9 to 5" didn't receive a bid for best musical and Megan Hilty was snubbed for best actress. Heck, "9 to 5" received 15 Drama Desk nominations — that's the most in the history of that theater contest! But, alas, Allison Janney got a much-deserved Tony bid. Here, below, we not only chat about that, but also about Janney's notorious romp at the Emmys during her "West Wing" days too. Lots of posters here at Gold Derby are still a bit mystified over how she managed to beat Jennifer Garner ("Alias") in 2002. Just wait till you hear Janney's hilarious answer when I ask: How did you pull that off?
