— She loves our love!
If you haven’t heard, Oakwood can now say it raised an Oscar-winning actress.
After grabbing her first Academy Award for best actress in a supporting role, Oakwood-raised Allison Janney didn’t forget where she came from while doing her rounds of thank yous.
“Love you Dayton! Thank you so much for all the love and support! I’m so proud to call you home. #Ohio,” wrote Janney in a Tweet Tuesday afternoon. The Tweet featured a picture of The Neon Movie Theater.
Sunday night, it seemed all of Dayton was rallying around the “I, Tonya” actress in hopes of seeing one of their own walk across the big stage. In this video, fans react to Janney’s win at the Trolley Stop in Dayton.
