"This Is Us" Got So Many Emmy Nominations, You Guys

And even those who didn't had no hard feelings.

Posted on

The show raked in 11 nominations: It's up for Outstanding Drama Series, two for Lead Actor in a Drama (Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia), three for Guest Actor (Gerald McRaney, Denis O'Hare, and Brian Tyree Henry), another for Supporting Actor (Ron Cephas Jones), and another for Supporting Actress (Chrissy Metz).


It's also nominated in the Casting, Contemporary Costumes, and Makeup categories.

Obviously, the cast had a lot to celebrate.

Me and my two dads are going to the emmys! Thank you @TelevisionAcad for honoring us all (& my sister! 😁) #ThisIsUs


Like Mandy Moore, for example.

Mandy Moore was robbed of a nomination, but that's okay. I have a feeling This Is Us will be in the running for man…

But, because the Pearsons stick together, there were no hard feelings.

I am unbelieving proud of my #thisisus fam! Congrats @sterlingkb1, @ChrissyMetz, @MiloVentimiglia and #roncephasjones! Wowowowow!

To share this honor with these beautiful people...priceless! Thank you Emmy academy! What a day...#Emmys2017…

So very proud of my #ThisIsUs cast and crew. A lot of Emmy noms for a lot of hard work. Couldn't be happier! Unbelievable!!!
