“Modern Family” Once Again Rules Comedy at the Emmys

Five tries, five successes.

Despite critic after critic speculating that its reign of Emmys dominance would come to an end, “Modern Family” emerged from Monday’s ceremony with another trophy.

ABC’s flagship comedy again claimed Outstanding Comedy Series, besting critical darlings “Veep” and “Louie,” ratings beast “The Big Bang Theory” and buzzworthy newcomer “Silicon Valley.”

The series also claimed trophies for Outstanding Supporting Actor (Ty Burrell) and Outstanding Directing (Gail Mancuso for the “Las Vegas” episode).

Other key comedy winners included Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) for Outstanding Lead Actor, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) for Outstanding Lead Actress, Allison Janney (“Mom”) for Outstanding Supporting Actress and Louis CK for Outstanding Writing (for the “So Did The Fat Lady” episode of “Louie”).
