This Is Us star Chrissy Metz is readying for her first Golden Globes!

Just hours before the NBC breakout attended the 74th annual awards, the nominee exclusively revealed on PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly‘s live pre-show how she’s feeling ahead of the show that honors acting in film and TV in 25 categories.

“I’m super excited, kind of a little nervous, but I actually used mediation this morning,” Metz, 36, said. “Just put a little playlist on and kind of chilled out because obviously we’re in a little bit of a rush, we have like 30 minutes until we leave, but I’m so excited.”

“I’m really, really grateful and just trying to stay present,” added Metz of the opportunity to take the red carpet.

As for glam, the NBC star is all about the makeup!

Metz is nominated alongside costar Mandy Moore for best supporting actress in a series, limited series or TV movie.
