I, Tonya is a 2017 American biographical film directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Steven Rogers. It follows the life of figure skater Tonya Harding and her connection to the 1994 attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan. The film states that it is based on "contradictory" and "true" interviews, suggesting they are unreliable narrators.

Margot Robbie(who also produced) stars as Harding, and Allison Janney plays Harding's mother LaVona Golden.

I, Tonya premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2017, was theatrically released, and grossed $53 million worldwide on an $11 million budget.

At the 90th Academy Awards, Janney won for Best Supporting Actress, while the film also earned nominations for Best Actress for Robbie and Best Editing (for Tatian S. Riegel, ACE).
