Moore was considered a strong contender for a nomination in the 'Best Actress in a Drama series' category for her performances on the show, particularly for her work in the penultimate episode. On her Instagram Story feed, Moore shared, "Do I wish our show was recognized in what I think was it’s finest hour? Sure, And Dan Fogelman’s brilliant writing for 6 seasons (hello THE TRAIN)? Ken Olin’s impeccable direction? Our insanely, wildly talented cast and crew? Yah…. But nothing can take away what our show meant to SO MANY (us included). That’s an incredible legacy to be a part of. I will be grateful forever."

The one nomination the show received was for the song “The Forever Now,” which was co-written by Moore’s husband, Taylor Goldsmith, and Siddhartha Khosla. “So unendingly proud of Siddhartha Khosla and Taylor Goldsmith for getting an Emmy nom for their song ‘Forever Now’ on our final season,” added Moore. Metz also expressed support for Moore and others in the show who were not recognized.

“When there are people who are so innately, incredibly gifted and talented who write a show — Dan Fogelman — and who act and star in a show — Mandy Moore — that don’t get recognized for their beautiful work? And the way that they have changed people’s lives and hearts and minds, and for the connective tissue between other human beings, and they don’t get recognized for it?,” Metz wrote in her Instagram story. “I understand it’s not everything, honey, but it’s something.”
