'Modern Family' Wins All the Emmys

Ty Burell, Julie BowenWell, 'Modern Family' is officially the king of the comedy crop at the Emmy Awards. The ABC comedy is four for four at tonight's awards.

Two-time nominee Julie Bowen took home her first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, beating out costar Sofia Vergara, Emmy host Jane Lynch and golden girl Betty White.

Meanwhile, her on-screen husband Ty Burrell took home his first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, after losing out to co-star Eric Stonestreet last year. Burrell was competing against costars Stonestreet, Ed O'Neil and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, along with 'Glee' star Chris Colfer, in his category.

Unlike his character, Burrell seemed rather reflective accepting the golden statue, noting that his father passed away before he ever had the chance to see his son perform. "I wonder what he'd think of this," Burrell said, telling the crowd that his father would probably be surprised that his son goes to work in full makeup every day.

And then to top it off, Michael Spiller won for directing the comedy series, and Steve Levitan and Jeffrey Richman won for comedy writing for one of 'Modern Family's' more memorable episodes -- when the Dunphy children catch their parents together in bed.

Finally, surprising no one, 'Modern Family' took home the last Emmy of the night, for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Pure Crap. Community just had the best single season a comedy has ever had. I guess not enough gay characters to win.
