Modern Family kicked off another triumphant year at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday (25Aug14) by becoming an early double winner at the Los Angeles event.
Show star Ty Burrell claimed the very first prize of the night for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and he celebrated the victory by reading out a cute speech penned for him by his young Tv co-stars Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould.
Accepting the award, he revealed, "I had a speech (planned) but apparently the kids in the cast of Modern Family wrote one for me too and they handed it to me when I got here, so I think I'll read that instead."
Modern Family chalked up a second Emmy shortly afterwards as Gail Mancuso was handed the gold trophy for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for her Las Vegas episode.
Meanwhile, Jim Parsons earned his fourth Emmy for playing astrophysicist Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory as he was named Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus scored her third consecutive Emmy win in the female equivalent for her portrayal of fictional Vice President Selina Meyer.
Other early winners included Louis C.K., (Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for Louie), Allison Janney (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for Mom), and Kathy Bates (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Mini Series or Movie for American Horror Story: Coven).
