CBS Donates 'Mom' Emmy Campaign Budget to Planned Parenthood

Instead of spending money on an Emmy Awards campaign for the comedy Mom this year, CBS has announced plans to donate the budget to Planned Parenthood.

Allison Janney has joined forces with Mom co-creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre to help raise awareness for the organization amid the American Health Care Act’s threat to PP’s funding.

“In Los Angeles County alone, we answer approximately 2,000 calls each day from people asking us for help,” said Sue Dunlap, president-CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. “Across the country, millions of women and men are relying on Planned Parenthood health centers for their basic care — like birth control, life-saving cancer-screenings, and STD testing and treatment. We are committed to being here for them, no matter what. Generous support from our community fuels this work, and we are honored that the team behind Mom is launching this campaign at this critical time.”

Allison won Emmys for her work on Mom in 2014 and 2015.

Allison Janney, Corey Hawkins & John Benjamin Hickey Get Star-Studded Support At 'Six Degrees of Separation' Opening!

Corey Hawkins, Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey got a whole bunch of support at the opening night of their play, Six Degrees of Separation!

Oh, Hello co-stars Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, former Friends co-stars David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry, Andy Cohen, Teyonah Parris, Victor Garber and Samuel L. Jackson all stepped out to show their support for the Broadway revival held at the Barrymore Theatre on Tuesday evening (April 25) in New York City.

Inspired by a true story, the play, according to press the press release, “follows the trail of a young con man, Paul (Hawkins), who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge (Janney and Hickey), saying he knows their son at college. Claiming he’s the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Paul tells them he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul’s intelligence (and the possibility of appearing in his father’s new movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. After finding him in bed with a hustler (Cusati-Moyer), their picture of Paul changes, and Ouisa and Flan turn detective trying to piece together the connections that gave him access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul’s cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory as his lies begin to catch up with him.”

Margot Robbie Films 'I, Tonya' with Her Co-Stars

Margot Robbie is hardly recognizable on the set of I, Tonya!

The 26-year-old actress is playing the title role of Tonya Harding in the film, and was seen on set with her co-stars on Sunday (January 22) in Atlanta, Ga.

Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney were also on set.

Allison stars as Tonya‘s mom LaVona Fay Golden and Sebastian stars as Tonya‘s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. In real life, Jeff hired a hitman to attack fellow ice skater Nancy Kerrigan so she wouldn’t be able to compete in the 1994 Winter Olympics. Nancy recovered in time and landed a silver medal in the games, but Tonya ended up getting banned from the sport for hindering the prosecution in the case.
