Allison Janney celebrates Oscar win with boxer-clad male dancers

Veteran actress Allison Janney won her first Academy Award earlier this month.

And the I, Tonya talent celebrated her statue with very special victory dance during a stop by the Ellen show, which airs Monday.

The West Wing beauty, 58, was literally swept off her feet by a team of hunky male dancers who donned boxers, bow-ties and little more to boogie with the star.

Allison was effortlessly stylish at Ellen’s Burbank, California studio, where she wore a white shirt and shiny black leggings with towering pink stilettos.

After the actress confessed she didn’t get to celebrate her win after the 90th annual Academy Awards back on March 4 because of her jam-packed schedule, the clever talk show hostess figured out the perfect way to mark the moment.

The Finding Nemo star beckoned shirtless dancers from backstage, who offered Allison a flute of champagne and threw a shiny satin sash across her body.

The blushing thespian and scantily-clad gentleman got up to dance to the Ginuwine classic Pony before Allison instructed the guys to pick her up in their arms.

At the top of the episode Ellen welcomed the actress with an ‘I told you so,’ reminding Allison that she predicted her Oscar win long before awards season.

But the wife of actress Portia De Rossi cut her praise short to ask the Mom actress: ‘Do you regret not thanking me?’ 

Her jab was a reference to Janney’s cheeky acceptance speech which she began by joking: ‘I did it all myself.’

The starlet was instantly apologetic for her forgetfulness, confessing she regrets not thanking Ellen or‘shock jock’ Howard Stern for their longtime support.

But the Emmy-winner was given an opportunity to make things right, as Ellen invited her to ‘re-do’ the speech in front of her studio audience.

She stood up right then and there to express her gratitude, but was almost instantly drowned out by the sound of brass music.

Later Ellen and Allison were joined by Silicon Valley’s Zach Woods for a round of Last Word, where Janney had to accept defeat at the hands of the hilariously-awkward actor.
