This Is Us star Mandy Moore reacts to Emmy nomination
Moore was actually at a SoulCycle spin class when the Emmy nominees were announced. She talked to ET Online about what happened after her class. She said, “I had, like, 65 text messages and I thought, ‘Oh no, did the show not get nominated and people are bummed out and they’re reaching out to say I’m sorry?’ I opened the first one from my husband and it just said, ‘You did it.’ And there were, like, 10 exclamation points.
Then, she continued, “I think I just looked at it and was like, ‘Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait…’ I called him because I was like, ‘I don’t understand what this means.’ I could not wrap my head around it.”
Also, in an interview with Deadline, Moore talked about the nomination. In the interview, she describes her feelings, saying, “It hasn’t sunk in. Not sure if it ever will. I’ve never dreamed of something like this. I’m really blown away. To say this is unexpected is a huge understatement.”
Even though Moore is surprised that this happened, all of her fans know that she definitely deserves the nomination. Because of this, fans are hopeful that the awards will be a success for This Is Us and its amazing cast.
