Ed O’Neill, star of ABC’s Modern Family recently said that his Co-Star Sofia Vergara should have won the 2010 Emmy for Best Supporting Actress rather than Glee Star, Jane Lynch.
“I love Jane, honestly I do,” O’Neill said. “I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest‘s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character.”
O’Neill showed support for his costar by saying, Sofia is just so, so funny,” said O’Neill. “I don’t think people realize how hilarious she is. She’s so sharp with her wit, it’s amazing,” added O’Neill.
Though Sofia wasn’t able to take home the award, just being nominated was an award within itself according to the actress.
“I was so excited to announce that my show was nominated, but to hear that I was nominated was a huge shock!” Vergara told Latina.com. “I am so honored to be in the company of all these amazing women. I feel like I’ve already won!”
