“Modern Family” might still win the award for Outstanding Comedy Series, but its reign of Emmy dominance is definitely over.
Earlier in the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast, Julie Bowen’s streak of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series wins ended at two. And the ceremony just revealed that “Family” will also depart the Supporting Actor field without a win.
Stars Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O’Neill were all up for the award in the hopes of continuing the show’s legacy; since premiering Eric Stonestreet has won twice, while Burrell has won once. But it was not to be.
The award instead went to Tony Hale for his work on “Veep.” In addition to the three “Family” actors, Hale also beat out longtime “Saturday Night Live” standout Bill Hader and “Girls”‘ Adam Driver.
