The NBC series, in which the star plays Pearson family matriarch, Rebecca, is currently airing Season 4. Mandy appeared to be thrilled as she called out this accomplishment on her Instagram by showing the official nominees in a photo as well as by writing about the happy situation in her caption.

“To be a part of the conversation 4 seasons in AND in such extraordinary company, is pretty mind blowing. Thank you @criticschoice!”

After stating that in her social media caption, she continued with specific congratulations sent to her colleagues who had also been nominated for individual awards.

Susan Kelechi Watson, who plays her daughter-in-law Beth Pearson, was named as a nominee for Best Actress in a Drama Series, as was Sterling K. Brown as Randall Pearson, who was named as a nominee for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

Both Justin Harley, who plays Kevin Pearson, and Asante Blackk, who plays the teenage version of Randall Pearson, were nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in a tough category given that both actors represent the same show.
