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.

What's Hot on SlashControl: Modern Family

by Jane Boursaw, posted Dec 9th 2009 2:02PM
Are you watching Modern Family? I haven't worked it into my schedule regularly, but have seen enough episodes to know it's good. Plus, everyone else says it's good, so how can you argue with that? Well, Bob says it's a bit overrated, so maybe a little debate is called for.

The show covers three very different types of families, and aside from great writing, excellent casting, and a good production, maybe that's the secret. There's something for everyone in Modern Family, whether you're young, old(er), middle-aged or gay. It's also executive produced by Steve Levitan (Just Shoot Me) and Christopher Lloyd (Frasier), so that probably has something to do with it, too.

Our own Jason has been covering it here on TV Squad, so be sure to check out his reviews. You can catch all the episodes at our sister site, SlashControl, but here's the most recent one, "Fizbo," to get you started.

Ed O'Neill shines on Modern Family

One of the true breakout hits of this fall season is ABC's sitcom Modern Family. The critics have been singing the praises of this show, and the ratings have been good enough that I will predict without equivocation, that Modern Family will see a second season. And Ed O'Neill deserves a lot of the credit.

I like Modern Family. I don't love, love, love it, but I like it. The guys that were together on Frasier, Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, have given us something good here. It's not Frasier level yet, but it might get there with time.

If there's one part of Modern Family that has won me over completely, it's Ed O'Neill. You might think, well, sure, it's Ed O'Neill. But I have never liked Ed. I was never a fan of Married With Children. I loathed it. And don't tell me I'm a moron for saying that; it's just a show that never worked for me.
