Now that’s starting the week off on a bright note!
This Is Us scored big during Monday's Golden Globe nominations, snagging three for Best Drama Series and stars Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz, who play mother and daughter on the breakout hit, were also recognized.
But not everyone from NBC’s freshman drama got a nom for their work. The most notable snub? Milo Ventimiglia, who plays beloved Pearson patriarch, Jack, who many have deemed TV’s dad of the year.
The 39-year-old actor was gracious about his snub, tweeting early Monday morning his congratulations to Moore, Metz, his co-stars and the This Is Us crew. (Sterling K. Brown received a nomination for his stunning turn in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.)
Newly minted Globe nominee Metz took to Instagram to celebrate the show’s Drama Series nomination. “And then your TV family gets a @goldenglobes nomination! Oh, happy day!” the 36-year-old actress wrote.
"This continues to be the wildest, craziest, and most rewarding ride for all of us," Fogelman later said in a statement ET, calling Moore and Metz "insanely talented women who are as easy to root for as they are to write for."
“We love each other. It’s very mutual,” Moore told ET’s Cameron Mathison on Sunday. “I think being a part of a show that’s so emotionally connected to what’s fundamentally important in life definitely spills out into our life with our families.”
