    Modern Family is currently predicted for a record breaking 6th win as Comedy Series by all Gold Derby Users.

    Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet are all predicted to be nominated once again by users, with Burrell largely predicted to win Supporting Actor for a third time. Both O’Neill and Vergara have also been nominated for Emmys in the past. 

    However, the young actors of this ensemble have yet to break through, and are largely thought to not make it again this year. So let’s rectify that slightly, and recognise their continued brilliance.

    Which of the young performers in the show was the best in Season 6? Vote, and add any comments/thoughts you have below.

    Sarah Hyland was the best this season, Nolan Gould coming in second not so far.

    By all Gold Derby users? No. By more of them than any other show and by a conglomerate oddsmaking system.

    All users as in when all users predictions are tallied, that is the show with the most predictions to win. Not that all users conclusively say it will be Modern Family.

    Rico Rodriguez was the highlight among the young stars for me in the early seasons, but since around season 3-4 (and especially these last two seasons), Sarah Hyland has been outstanding. She made my Comedy Supporting Actress lineup last year, and just missed this year. She is sensational and I hope she gets her own starring vehicle after “MF” ends.

    From this year (and the past few years), the MVP among the younger actors would have to be Hyland. That having been said, she’s benefited a great deal from writers who are genuinely interested and invested in her character, and have supplied her with the sturdiest and most compelling storylines among the younger set (even though she was mostly unseen in the episode, her character is the focal point of this past season’s ONLY truly outstanding episode, “Connection Lost”). Thanks to those storylines, Haley has also undergone character development that by and large has not been doled out among the other youngsters.

    To her credit, Winter has been a proficient and reliable team player from Day One, and when she gets a bone thrown her way, as in Season 5’s unusually thoughtful “Under Pressure,” she delivers. But Alex has more or less stayed in the same groove of introverted bookworm motivated by being the best student she can be since the series began; it would be interesting to see her move beyond the comfort zones that the writers have set up for her.

    It’s painfully clear from the past few seasons that the writers have more or less thrown up their hands in trying to figure out how to use Rodriguez and Gould effectively. The gimmicks that made them spotlight-stealers six years ago are now expected and rote, and more often than not, the two young men seem to be working on autopilot. Rodriguez, however, has fared somewhat better,  for even as he’s been blocked more and more consistently into the background as of late, the pointed precocity that marked his early days on the show  has become more and more palatable as he’s gotten older. On the other hand, Gould’s loopy awkwardness, which gave him an erratic “cute” factor in his younger days, has become noticeably more clunky and disjointed as he’s gotten older. Some young actors have a tough time negotiating the transition from acting as a child to really learning how to act, and I don’t envy them having to figure that out in front of millions on a week-to-week basis, but it’s impossible not to notice that Gould in particular has really lost a lot of ground since the series began.

    Anderson-Emmons seems to be a constant, ever-shifting target for the writers in a throw-everything-we-can-think-of-and-hope-something-sticks kind of way. And the blunt truth is that more often than not, Anderson-Emmons misses more frequently than she hits. I think she gets a little too much credit for her good deliveries when what is usually happening is that the writers have suddenly woken up at the wheel and given her something with real wit to it. Most of the time, I find her a charmless Xerox machine, clearly going through prescribed movements and readings (half the time, her facial reactions seem to belie anything like what the script is calling for her to project), but once in a while, she’ll stumble over a moment that feels inordinately above-par and I think, “Is this the beginning of something?…” An-n-n-nd then….

    Why exactly is Eric Stonestreet being predicted to score a nomination?

    Hyland deserved a few nods already!
