    Am I the only one who thought this win was a bit meh? I love me some Burrell, but he has deserved Emmys for other seasons. I think all of the supporting guys would’ve been in danger had Stonestreet been nominated. Like it or not, he would have mopped the floor with these guys last year and this year. Why didn’t voters go for Ferguson? His tape wasn’t THAT dramatic, I mean it had some funny stuff… I think it was the fact that Mitch often blends into the ensemble much like Ed O’Neill, unlike Burrell, Bowen and Stonestreet who always appear to be standouts in every episode. If no one new comes along next year, could Burrell be potentially looking at a 3rd Emmy?

    “Spring-a-Ding-Fling”, his episode submission for the award, was classic Phil Dunphy. Clumsy, hilarious and heartfelt Phil.
    His performance of “I’m Selling Away”, sung to the tune of “I’m Sailing Away.”, while in drag, in a stage production, exhibiting comic brilliance and a heartfelt moment with his daughter,  in one of Modern Family’s sweetest acts in some time. Him winning Realtor of the Year right after performing – It is so awards baity, it stings.

    Yes, his 3 scenes in the epsiode was brief, but it was a standout. It was memorable.
    Compared with Tony Hale’s one bathroom scene where he is basically just laughing, bleeding, laughing, bleeding…i’d say Burrell nailed it, won it…and he deserves it.

    The Jesse Tyler Ferguson episode , in my opinion, was more heartfelt than funny. More dramatic than comic.

    And yep, i do believe Ty Burrell will be the last man standing for Modern Family at awards shows.  When Modern Family has faded, Ty Burrell will be the name voters will go to for acting consideration.

    His win was perfectly deserving. JTF is the weakest link for 5 years and Burrell had a nice season.

    I hated this win because he did nothing especially new all season long and his episode to me was lazy and was an example of Burrell slumping it in an undeveloped episode plot. Ferguson has been good for some time now and really it is sad he has not been rewarded. The category since the start of Modern Family has been a mess and this year I would have rather seen braugher or driver win and hale is not even as good as he co stars like Walsh and Scott. Armisen is a lead and his costar his better so really I just do not care for this category and all I hope is someone new like Martin sheen can just win because like lead comedy actor comedy is much better suited around women.

    Ferguson should’ve won for the Halloween episode in 2011. But Burrell had the best season that year. I too think Burrell and Bowen will be the last two MF actors standing til the end.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson should have two Emmys to his credit by now. One for season 3 had he submitted “Phil on Wire” instead of what he submitted (handing the win over to Eric Stonestreet), and the other this year for “Message Received.” He should have been the clear victor with both tapes. It’s sad that things shifted otherwise. Meh.

    Ty Burrell is the best part about Modern Family, so I’m content with a second win. I felt bad when Stonestreet won his second because he had a better tape, when Burrell so cleary had the better season.

    I’ve never been that impressed by JTF.

    And the point in saying that was what? Your view is no more “correct” than mine is. Moving on.

    In a forum, we reflect on each other’s posts. I did that on yours. No one said mine is correct. I shared my opinion. Moving on.

    I’m surprised that this was his second Emmy.

    I love Burrell, so the win didn’t bother me too much, either. That said, I didn’t really think he had much to do on his submissions, so I think voters tossed the tapes out like last year (due to no one having anything outstanding) and just voted for who they enjoyed the best.

    I’m also a fan of Burrell but even if I wasnt I dont think its a big crime JTF lost. Burell gave voters broad comedy.  No big shock voters ate that up.  JTF may get a win someday but it wont be the INJUSTICE derbyites make it out to be if “Modern Family” ends and he’s Emmyless.

    totally glad that Burrell win his second emmy at last, he should have won last year!
    but this year, it’s JTF’s turn to win, and this is quite disappointing

    I had a feeling when I first saw Message Received that while it was a clear standout tape for Ferguson it could also benefit O’Neill or Burrell (bear in mind this was in May). Burrell has a stellar plot with the old answering machine and that bit where Claire hits too close to home gives him quite a bit of heft. He had great range in that tape and laugh out loud stuff in his own tape. The cumulative effect probably put him well over the top.
