EMMYS: Julie Bowen Thanks Sofia Vergara
Sunday night's Emmy Awards was a worthwhile event for ABC's Modern Family, a series that has dominated awards season since it kicked off in 2009, and the ladies of Modern Family showed their support for one another when Julie Bowen, 42, who plays Claire Dunphy on the show, picked up the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, a category in which she was up against costar Sofia Vergara, 40.
When Bowen took the stage for the second consecutive time at the Emmys, Vergara hooted her support from the audience, to which Bowen acknowledged sweetly, "Oh, that's my Sofia. God bless you."
Modern Family also picked up a Best Supporting Actor nod for Eric Stonestreet, a Best Director win for Steve Levitan and a Best Comedy award for the third year in a row.
Modern Family, also starring Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Sarah Hyland returns for its season four premiere Wednesday, September 26, on ABC.
