Three Emmy Awards for ‘Modern Family’
Burrell, who plays the dorky dad Phil Dunphy on ABC-TV’s Modern Family, was nominated for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. But so were two other members of the Modern Family cast, and it was one of Burrell’s co-stars, Eric Stonestreet, who ended up winning the Emmy last night.
Modern Family took two other Emmy Awards last night: It won for Comedy Series (ending a three-year lock on that award by 30 Rock) and Writing for a Comedy Series. You can see the complete list of nominees and winners here. And check out the Daily Collegian story from this past Friday, in which they talk to a couple of Burrell’s former Penn State profs.
