A phone call in the wee hours of the morning can make you fear the worst, but "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara only had to fret for two seconds before hearing the good news.
Early on Thursday it was announced that Vergara is up for an outstanding supporting actress in a comedy Emmy. Her nod is just one of 19 for the lauded ABC show.
“I never thought when I went into acting I was going to be nominated for anything,” Vergara told Marquee. “It never crossed my mind once.”
The Colombian actress credits the show’s writers with perfecting her hilarious character, Gloria.
It’s amazing how well they write for each of the characters on our show, she said. They know how to write for Julie Bowen, who plays Claire, because they all know American women. “But, for me,” she added, “none of the writers have a sister that is Latin and loud and crazy. They asked a lot of questions at the beginning - the first three episodes. Now they get me.”
This is Vergara’s second Emmy nod. She and co-star Bowen were also nominated in the same category in 2010, but lost out to “Glee’s” Jane Lynch.
Though, Vergara assured us, there is no tension between cast mates. And that's a good thing, considering Ty Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Ed O'Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are all in the running to be named outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.
“All of us have been texting and very excited to go together to the Emmys,” she said. “[‘Modern Family’] is successful because of all of us together. None of us could do this show alone, so it’s for all of us. If any of us wins, it’s because our show is doing so good.”
Congratulations Sofia. You represent hispanic women well. I hope you win
"None of us could do this show alone." I can't imagine anyone letting you doing anything alone, Sophia.

Mid-West, I hear that if your comment doesn't get posted and you really want it there... you need to quit life... then somehow all the comments magically appear on the screen.
Either way, I'm sure you didn't have anything constructive to say other than the fact that you have bladder problems.
