(BE honest! What did you notice first??!)

One of my absolute favorite shows (both current and past) is Modern Family. ABC’s hit comedy series about the lives of actual-seeming people (gays, old folks, witty kids) has swept this year’s Emmy nominations with a staggering 14 nod’s! The show earned nominations for best comedy series, while Julie Bowen and Sophia Vergara were both nominated as best supporting actress. There were also supporting actor nominations for Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler FergusonTy Burrell and Eric Stonestreet! All four men were nominated, and Eric Stonestreet is already saying to the press that he hopes his colleagues win! That is awesome!

Just how great is Modern Family? Well, besides having the smoking Sofia Vergara, the show boasts the title of most popular show on television among 18-49 year olds, according to ratings information.

And if you don’t know – tune in to ABC Wednesdays at 9:30 for laughs, gay dads and ‘Phil Dunphy, yo!’

 

Congrats to you all!
