Slay, girl! This Is Us star Chrissy Metz looked amazing at the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet as she wore a silver metallic dress with statement earrings along with her hair slicked back. Even though the brunette beauty isn’t up for an award, several other cast members from her show are including Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown.
However, the 38-year-old couldn’t help but gush about her costars after she heard they were nominated. “It’s very exciting. I mean, you always hope, OK, you’re part of something that is going to change people’s hearts and minds, but then to be recognized, to be a part of the conversation,” she told Access Hollywood in June. “There is a lot of competition with cable shows, and we don’t have, of course, the budget. We don’t have the time. There are so many stipulations with network television, so to be a part of that conversation is really exciting.”
Mandy, 35, and Chris, 39, were ~finally~ nominated for the first time this past year. “I did get emotional,” the actress confessed. “I am really excited. I am really, really just proud. Proud seems silly, but I’m really proud, and it’s overdue.”
Last year, Mandy — who plays Rebecca Pearson on the hit show — got snubbed, so Chrissy wanted to explain why the singer deserves this honor. “People don’t realize what she goes through,” she said. “Before she even steps on set, there is three and a half hours of makeup, and she spends 10, 12 hours in it, and she makes it look so effortless, and so does of course, our make up department. I am just — when people make things look so effortless, you are like, ‘No big deal,’ but she does it day in and day out, and she spans decades. It’s impressive.”
So, how exactly did Chris find out that he was up for the coveted award? “I don’t think Chris knew that nominations were today,” Chrissy recalled at the time. “I think I was the first person to tell him. And then he’s like ‘Wait, what are you talking about?’ So, I had to screenshot the list, and he was like, ‘Huh?’ I was like, I am crying, literally crying. I am just so excited.”
We are crossing our fingers for the This Is Us family!
