Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Can Sofia Vergara or Betty White dethrone Julie Bowen?
Sofia Vergara of 'Modern Family'
Sofia Vergara, "Modern Family"
Nomination Status: Nomination is a lock. Is this her year to win?
In Her Favor: You get the feeling that the "Modern Family" writers would like to spread the outlandish material around so that everybody gets a shot at winning an Emmy, but Julie Bowen just keeps on winning. Well, this year they gave Sofia Vergara a pregnancy arc and if that's not gonna be enough to get Vergara an actual Emmy win, I don't know what will. That trailer for "Machete Kills" in which she shoots a hail of machine gun bullets from her brassiere won't hurt.
Working Against Her: For a nomination? Nothing. Vergara's a lock. "Modern Family" is still one of the most popular comedies on TV and its momentum with award voters has yet to wane.
