“Modern Family” Extends Streak; Wins Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy

If you thought the show’s failure to win in the Supporting Actor and Actress categories foretold doom, you were wrong.

For the fourth time in as many attempts, “Modern Family” won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series.

Striking the right chord between accessible and clever, “Family” remains a top destination for comedy fans. And though it no longer garners the universal praise it did in its first season, it is still capable of stimulating laughter–its “Phil’s-osophy” gag was considered one of the show’s all-time best.

“Family,” which beat out “30 Rock,” “Girls,” “Louie,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Veep,” also won the Emmy for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series. It uncharacteristically lost, however, in the Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress races.
