The hit NBC series was expected to pop up in several categories including Best Drama Series and various acting lists, but only received one for Best Original Song which went to Mandy's husband Taylor Goldsmith.

Fans and critics were outraged by the snub, especially after acclaim for Mandy's performance in the final episodes. But in response, Mandy praised her husband and reminded fans of the "incredible legacy" they leave behind.

"So unendingly proud of @siddkhoslamusic and @taylordawesgoldsmith for getting an Emmy nom for their song Forever Now on our final season of #ThisIsUs,” the 38-year-old wrote in her Instagram Story.

In a second slide, she then added: "Do I wish our show was recognized in what I think was its finest hour? Sure. And Dan Fogelman's brilliant writing for 6 seasons, 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."

Succession picked up 25 nominations and Apple comedy smash Ted Lasso 20 with the 2022 Emmy nominations, with The White Lotus also picking up 20, and comedies Hacks and Only Murders In The Building both with 17.

Squid Game made history as the first non-English language series to pick up a Best Series nomination. The Korean drama has been a runaway hit for Netflix since it dropped in early 2021.

Elsewhere, the final season of Killing Eve received two nods for stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, while Sydney Sweeney picked up two nods for her work in Euphoria and The White Lotus.
