Remember this day: the day you found out that Tonya Harding is finally getting the biopic she deserves starring none other than Margot Robbie. The former Olympic ice skater made circa 1994 headlines for all kinds of insane reasons, including a harrowing Free Skate in which her shoelaces betrayed her. In the words of the enthusiastic sportscaster who live-narrated the moment, "This is every skater's recurring nightmare. This is one that you wake up screaming from every morning."

On top of that good time, Harding's husband conspired to have rival Nancy Kerrigan's legs broken, and Tonya ended up with three years of probation. So yeah, Margot Robbie's new gig in I, Tonya is pretty much the role of a lifetime.
