So how did Mandy Moore find out she was nominated for a 2017 Golden Globe? Via a text from her This is Us husband Milo Vintimiglia!
“I was at home in bed because it was 5:30 in the morning, and my boyfriend was getting up to take an early morning flight, so I sort of woke up with him. And then I looked and my phone kind of lit up. And I wasn’t thinking about it…and it was a text from Milo saying, ‘Congratulations!’ And I was like, ‘Congratulations for what? Did the show get nominated?’ I had no, no idea. No idea about the nomination,” Mandy told E! News.
Milo revealed he texted all of his co-stars the amazing news! “I did. I did right when it happened with Mandy and Chrissy—I messaged Mandy, Chrissy, Sterling and Dan Fogelman, our creator. I guess I broke the news to [Mandy,] which maybe sounds OK. I’m TV husband. I feel like maybe I should be the guy to say, ‘Honey, you’re being honored and I’m so proud of you,’” Milo said.
Meanwhile, he was snubbed from the list – but had a really sweet and grounded reaction to being left out.
