"Modern Family" was show to beat at Emmys

By Michelle Joline

Writer

This year’s Emmy Awards made for spectacular weekend TV, our favorite stars plastered across our television screens and computers. Jane Lynch hosted, promoting the “Glee” season premiere that aired on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Whether or not you were watching the red carpet broadcast from E! News or ABC, there was certainly a buzz over the hit comedy “Modern Family.” Within the first few minutes of the primetime broadcast, “Modern Family” gained four awards without a break.

Julie Bowen, Claire Dunphy on “Modern Family,” snagged the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series award and her co-star Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy) took the male equivalent, beating out three of his fellow male cast members.

A surprise but deserved win was Melissa McCarthy’s award for her character Molly Flynn from “Mike & Molly.” Anyone who enjoyed her performance in 2011’s hit comedy “Bridesmaids” was rooting for her to win for her role as Megan.  Hopefully after the back-to-back success of “Bridesmaids” and “Mike & Molly,” we will get to see more from her as a leading comedienne in Hollywood.

With the end of “Friday Night Lights” there was no better time to have Kyle Chandler recognized for his role as Eric Taylor in the hit series. The expression the series coined, “Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose,” was never more relevant. The win made a great end to the series after many fans were upset to see it go.

Kate Winslet’s win for outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or a movie in “Mildred Pierce” came as no surprise.

“Mad Men” took the award for best drama and “Modern Family” won best comedy. It only seemed appropriate to have the 2011 Emmy Awards end on the same note it started, applauding the work that goes into making “Modern Family” a huge success. If you have not had the chance to view the series yet, the new season of “Modern Family”  just aired this past Wednesday, Sept. 21 . Next year’s Emmy Awards have a lot to look forward to with new shows like “The New Girl” and “Pan Am.” Luckily, these shows are coming just as the weather is getting colder on campus.
