Ty Burrell of 'Modern Family'
Ty Burrell, "Modern Family"
Nomination Status: Three-time nominee and former winner is a lock.
In His Favor: It was yet another strong season for Ty Burrell, though I find I like Phil Dunphy a lot more when he's being reactive than when he's driving storylines. So he's likely to get his nomination for the episodes built on his rivalry with the Rob Riggle character or possibly the RV episode, but he was much better in the episode with Claire's health scare and several episodes that focused more on Haley. That's just about preferences, though. Burrell is going to get another nomination and nobody should quibble.
Working Against Him: Nothing.
