    I wouldn’t mind it if they moved to lead, only if they are the real main leads on the show.

     

     I agree with whoever talked about the friends situation. I wouldn’t mind it if after everyone wins Emmys in supporting, for them to go lead.

    At the end of the day Sofia needs an episode submission intervention next year.

    My original perception, with Modern Family, is that the leads are Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. They’re playing father, son, and daughter. Family tree, on Modern Family, is connected to each: Sofia Vergara (for O’Neill); Ty Burrell (for Bowen); Eric Stonestreet (for Ferguson).

    The way it is happening with nominations is fair: the cast is figuring their roles are equals on Modern Family.

    They are the leads on the show, and I really didn’t think Bowen would be able to win in the supporting category. She feels more like a “lead” win…but the voters were smart and gave her the Emmy. Bravo to them.

    So they can stay put.

    G’Day,

     

    From a strategy standpoint I’m not sure how this is an advantage. Bowen would struggle more to win lead (although she possibly could) and neithr of the women would then have the benifit of two tapes (unless one of the kids gets a deserved nomination). On the men side of things it would probably give O’Neil and Ferguson a little bit of a better chance to win and actually Burell could possibly win lead with the right tape (since he won’t be getting anyone elses). But it would also give more of a chance for a non-Modern Family contender to win supporting.

     

    Also, since I don’t think there is a claer lead on the show I think it’s good they just all go in together. Having just Bowen and Burell go up would be a message that they are the central couple on the show (it is however the biggest family on the show and I have seen bigger stretches at the emmys).

     

    At the end of the day I’d say play it safe and just stick with what’s been working for the show.

    Nope.

    It’s truly an ensemble case and no one is the lead. I respect them for that.  (I’m looking at you, Rob Lowe!)

    Ed O’Neill could have been a lead actor and probably would have won over Parson, but he didn’t and that was fine. (Parson winning over Carell still makes me wanna vomit…brb…barf-face)

    My rational mind would say Bowen would not have stood a chance as lead actress, then again, McCarthy won.  So Julie Bowen probably would have won just because the voters have an irrational boner when it comes to Modern Family.

    I think it is possible they could move up to lead, with only Ty Burrell having a chance at winning next year. It would also make room for some kids to get in like Nolan Gould or Sarah Hyland.

    But in the end, they’ll stay put. Both will probably repeat next year anyway because Sofia Vergara can’t ever sumbit the right episode and Ty Burrell is the funniest person ever!!!

    Absolutely not…but I wouldn’t mind if all the adults submitted lead while the younger actors went the supporting route.
