A small but special guest joined I, Tonya stars Allison Janney and Sebastian Stan when they introduced the film at Sunday’s Golden Globes: Paying homage to her character in the movie — Tonya Harding’s mom — Janney wore a bird on her shoulder atop her black and white Mario Dice gown.

Just ahead of winning the award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role in a motion picture, Janney, 58, took the stage with her co-star plus a fake bird reminiscent of the one Harding’s mother, LaVona Golden, wore on her own shoulder when she did interviews.

Janney then gave the animal a shout-out in her acceptance speech.

“Of course, I owe this all to a bird named ‘Little Man’ in Georgia,” she joked.

The Mom star even told Time in November that bonding with Little Man on set has inspired her to think about getting a pet. (Little Man did some press of his own, speaking to EW in December.)

“I’m thinking of getting a bird now,” Janney said.

The 75th annual Golden Globes were presented live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday
