We knew 'Modern Family' would win something at the 2012 Emmy Awards. After all, the cast and crew pretty much dominated the Comedy Series, and Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress categories. But probably no one expected Julie Bowen, who plays Claire Dunphy on the show, to beat out both Kristen Wiig (and her many 'SNL' personalities) and the late Kathryn Joosten of 'Desperate Housewives' in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category! But she did.
Well, isn't that something. 'Modern Family' seems to have won itself an award. Did we not tell you that this show would likely come up again when it won the first award of the night, awarding Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series to Eric Stonestreet? Sigh
Stop the presses, 'Modern Family' has won an Emmy! The sure to dominate series caps off the first award of the night, snagging Outstanding Supporting Actor on the comedy side of things with Eric Stonestreet. Stonestreet won for his beloved portrayal of Cameron Tucker on ABC's monster-comedy hit 'Modern Family.'
If you're wondering why a monotone man in a classroom keeps spouting the name "Bueller" in succession despite the man's clear absence, we've finally got an answer: he's busy on the set of 'Modern Family' season 4! That's right, Ferris Bueller himself, Matthew Broderick will ditch his other responsibilities to pop by the series for an upcoming episode, but as whom? Will his star turn, numbering among the many 'Modern Family' has brought to light be the best yet?
