Entertainment At the Emmys, “Modern Family” Dominates “Best Comedy” Category

By Alexandra Gratereaux (Fox News Latino)

Sofía Vergara, Rico Rodríguez and their “Modern Family” crew took home the Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy Series” Sunday night.

This is the second year that the cast dominates the best comedy category.

The 63 annual Emmy Awards took place at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, Calif. and were hosted by Glee’s leading actress Jane Lynch.

Vergara, who looked stunning in a shoulder-baring Vera Wang gown, presented the award to Melissa McCarthy from Mike & Molly for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy” along with actor Rob Lowe.

“Modern Family” also won Emmy’s in the “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy series”, “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series,” “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Director for a Comedy Series.”

“Modern Family” producer Steve Levitan, whose picture of the American family today includes gay couples and interracial families, told of being approached during shooting by a real-life gay couple who wanted to say thanks.

“They said, ‘You’re not just making people laugh, you’re making them more tolerant,'” said Levitan, whose show received a total of five awards.

Another Latino that created some buzz during the awards ceremony was none other than Charlie Sheen, who presented the lead actor award, using his time onstage to make nice with his former “Two and a Half Men” colleagues.

He was fired from the show after bitterly clashing with its producer and studio, and was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

“From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season,” he said.

“I know you will continue to make great television.”
