Mandy Moore Just Won a Huge Acting Award From the Television Critics Association
"What a beautiful way to honor this job," the actress said after learning the news.
Mandy Moore took home the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Drama, the organization revealed in early August. Moore won, of course, for This Is Us' final season, where she gave a nuanced, emotional portrayal of Rebecca Pearson in the final stages of her life.
Moore was nominated alongside Michael Keaton in Dopesick, Margaret Qualley in Maid, Melanie Lynskey in Yellowjackets, Rhea Seehorn in Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul, Lee Jung-jae in Squid Game, Amanda Seyfried in The Dropout, Adam Scott in Severance, and Jeremy Strong in Succession.
The actress celebrated her win on Instagram, writing, "Wow!!! Thank you for this recognition, @official_tca! Bummed we didn’t get to celebrate in person but what a beautiful way to honor this job I miss you much already. As always, the deepest gratitude to Dan Fogelman and our stellar crew and cast!! #thisisus."
Her comments section was flooded with love. "YESSSSSSS," This Is Us executive producer Isaac Aptaker wrote.
"CONGRATULATIONS, MM! 🎉✨🎉✨🎉✨🎉✨🎉✨" Chrissy Metz, who played Kate, replied. And Jon Huertas (a.k.a Miguel) posted, "Yassss!!!! Congrats my friend!"
Chris Geere, who played Phillip, responded with, "Wonderful news!!" And we couldn't agree more.
What isn't wonderful, of course, is This Is Us ending after six years. Fans are still missing the show, as is the cast.
"I don't think I fully processed it yet, like I get emotional thinking about it," Moore told Today in May about the show ending. "It was probably more emotional being on set for a lot of my other friends' last day. I was there for Susan [Kelechi Watson] and for Chris Sullivan. Sterling [K. Brown] and Chrissy [Metz] and Justin [Hartley] shot the next day, but Milo [Ventimiglia] and I wrapped together and Chrissy, Susan, and Sterling all stayed around a couple hours after they were done with work to watch Milo and I wrap. That's how we feel about one another."
Watch This Is Us on Peacock and on NBC.
