Mandy Moore, Chris Sullivan Celebrate First Emmy Nominations at NBC and Universal Television Celebration
For Mandy Moore, the news of her first Emmy nomination for her role as Rebecca in “This Is Us” hasn’t yet sunk in.

“I don’t know if it ever really does, does it?” she asked Variety. “It’s pretty crazy. We are truly a family here and I can’t help but think 54 episodes in, three seasons in, the fact that the show is still getting acknowledged and in this conversation at all is the craziest, most incredible accolade in and of itself.”

Moore and the cast of the hit NBC series took a break from filming their fourth season, gathering at Tesse in West Hollywood on Tuesday night to celebrate their nine nominations — including one for outstanding drama series. Also singled out by the Television Academy for his performance this year was Chris Sullivan, who’s elated about his first nod.

He was then stunned to see a barrage of texts and calls congratulating him. “To be fair, my work in the first two seasons was crap,” Sullivan jokes, “and I got my act together for Season 3 and really started trying, really started giving it my all. It really has worked out.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Sullivan above.

‘This Is Us’ Star Chris Sullivan on Dressing ‘Very Loudly’ and Challenging Gender Norms
This Is Us” star Chris Sullivan loves bright colors, playful patterns and challenging gender norms: “I’ve always dressed very loudly,” he says.

2016

“The goal for me, always, is to have fun, and to kind of intentionally be unexpected and go against the dress code a little bit,” says first-time Emmy nominee Sullivan. For an early screening of “This Is Us,” he wore asymmetrical glasses, a Bailey hat and floral pants from Loudmouth, “which I think is an appropriate title for a favorite clothing company of mine.” The series instantly sparked a reaction. “There’s a level of flawed-character that this show uncovers. And jumping back and forth between storylines is exciting because it makes the show unpredictable: You never know which way we’re going to go.”
