Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy
Will the four 'Modern Family' men stack the category again?
Ed O'Neill of 'Modern Family'
Ed O'Neill, "Modern Family"
Nomination Status: Two-time nominee should be back.
In His Favor: Really, the only strange thing is the nomination Ed O'Neill didn't get for the first "Modern Family" season. His nomination this year is basically a lock, especially with the various plotlines surrounding Jay becoming a father again this season and all of that. "Modern Family" has always relied heavily on O'Neill's ability to wrap episodes up with sincerity and it felt like he possibly got even more emotional moments this past season.
Working Against Him: Pretty much nothing.
