“In 2002 I was honored with this golden popcorn trophy for #awalktoremember and now 15 years later, in a completely different chapter of my life, @mtv has recognized all of our work on #thisisus (and @miloanthonyventimiglia and @lonniechavis for that tear-jerking scene in the Dojo, plus @chrissymetz as the undeniable force that she is),” she captioned an epic image from 15 years ago. “Thanks for the kudos, #MTVawards.
