'La La Land' Choreographer Mandy Moore Isn't the Same Person as 'This Is Us' Actress Mandy Moore
Choreographer Mandy Moore was thanked multiple times at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.
The La La Land Golden Globe award winners repeatedly thanked their film's choreographer, Mandy Moore, in their acceptance speeches, leading casual viewers at home to wonder if singer-actress Mandy Moore, who stars in and was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in NBC's This Is Us also choreographed the Damien Chazelle musical.
She didn't. The La La Land choreographer is a different person who has the same name as the This Is Us actress.
La La Land's Moore choreographed the opening of the awards show on Sunday, hosted by Jimmy Fallon. In addition to La La Land, she has worked on Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Joy and such reality shows as So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars.
Choreographer Moore pokes fun at the name confusion with her Twitter handle, @nopenother, and her Twitter bio, stating "nope, I'm not the singer."
