This is the Mandy Moore who choreographed “La La Land,” because she’s not the one you think

There are a lot of people in the arts who are so famous that it seems everyone knows their names. We have actors who you can pick out just with a first name and singers who are so famous we know more about their lives than some of our acquaintances. And then, there are the rare times where two famous people have the same name and that’s a struggle for Mandy Moore… and Mandy Moore.

Both Mandy Moore’s were at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, one was celebrated for having choreographed the hit movie La La Land that was awarded several statues at the awards and was thanked several times throughout the night for her work.

The other Mandy Moore was on hand at the awards to present and currently stars on This Is Us…but they’re not the same person.

The La La Land choreographer is a different person who just happens to have the same name as the This Is Us actress who we were first introduced to as a young popstar.

She’s a highly decorated choreographer and chances are we’re all very familiar with her work, including choreographing the opening of the 47th Golden Globes Awards, Silver Linings Playbook and reality shows like Dancing With the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance.

Now, this whole name confusion can be a frustrating thing for two incredibly talented women, but choreographer Mandy Moore has a great sense of humor about it all, which is evident in her social media handle name @nopenother.
