“Glee” started out with a staggering edge – 20 Emmy nominations compared to only 14 for “Modern Family.” “Glee” also had advantage in terms of awards momentum, having won both the Golden Globe for best comedy series and the Screen Actors Guild prize for best comedy ensemble earlier in the year.
However, “Modern Family” not only ended up winning best comedy series, but Eric Stonestreet beat “Glee” breakout star Chris Colfer for best supporting actor. “Glee” had to settle for four victories: best supporting actress (Jane Lynch), director (Ryan Murphy), guest actor (Neil Patrick Harris) and sound mixing. “Modern Family” won six. In addition to series and supporting actor, it won writing, editing, casting and sound mixing.
Do you think “Glee” will rally and beat “Modern Family” this year?
