Sarah Hyland of 'Modern Family' is pulling for Ty Burrell in the Emmy race on 'Access Hollywood Live'Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on 'Modern Family,' has her hands full choosing who to root for in the Outstanding Supporting Actor In a Comedy Series Emmy race. Four of her co-stars -- Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O'Neill, Eric Stonestreet, and Ty Burrell -- are nominated in the category. Kit Hoover put Hyland on the spot on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) and asked her to choose who she'd most like to see win.

Hoover thought Hyland might have a soft spot for TV veteran O'Neill. "I do, I do," said Hyland. "Of course I love everyone in our cast and I wish them all the luck. But it has to be, for me, it has to be between Ed and Ty. He's my daddy. I want my daddy."

Apparently there's a lot of Phil Dunphy in Burrell, which Hyland said was part of his appeal. "He's so much like Phil, so it's like, everyone who falls in love with Phil will fall in love with Ty just as much," she said. "I'm pulling for him." Whoever wins, there's a two out of three chance it will be one of Haley's TV relatives.
