With last week's Emmy Award nominations, not many TV fans were surprised to see that NBC's This Is Us snagged eight nods. While fans rejoiced over the show's recognition, no one was happier than the drama's cast and crew — including Mandy Moore, who celebrated her co-stars and co-workers' achievements.

So much gratitude for the recognition!! 💗💗💗💗— Mandy Moore (@TheMandyMoore) July 12, 2018
Though Moore was not nominated for her individual performance in the series, she marveled at the nods her co-stars Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown received, as well as those for guest stars Ron Cephas Jones and Gerald McRaney.
