"You know, things were a lot simpler when I was a kid. You know, in the '90s, we had movies like Beauty and the Beast. On TV, we were watching Full House," he said. "Blink 182 was making a go of it on tour, and you know, we just couldn't stop talking about O.J. Simpson."
"So, nothing's really changed?" Metz laughed.
"Nope, nothing. Nothing at all," Ventimiglia confirmed, before presenting the award to another father-daughter duo, Hugh Jackman and his Logan daughter, Dafne Keen.
Ventimiglia, Metz, and the rest of the This Is Us cast later won for Best Tearjerker, with Lonnie Chavis adorably accepting the award with his on-screen dad.
"Thank you very much. We are sorry that we made you cry," Ventimiglia said.
"Yeah, I can't keep thinking that this is not heavy," Chavis adorably confessed to the audience before thanking god, his family and "all my fans" for the award.
The NBC series is also up for Show of the Year, Metz is nominated for Next Generation, and Mandy Moore for Best Actor in a Show.
