Following the 2019 SAG award nominations announcement on Wednesday (Dec. 12), nominees and their peers took to social media to share their excitement and gratitude with fans.
Darren Criss, who is nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a television movie or miniseries for his role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, received the good news just after he woke up. “I feel really honored to be acknowledged by my peers,” Criss said in a video. “I’m proud to be a part of SAG-AFTRA.”
Mandy Moore received a nomination for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series, along with the rest of her This Is Us cast. Moore also shouted out her “inimitable” castmate Sterling K. Brown on his nomination for best male actor in a drama series for This Is Us.
