Truthfully, it would have been odd if the show weren’t included in the organization’s list of nominees. Featuring Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) as the world’s most adorable (but increasingly realistic) and successful gay couple, happily raising a toddler, supporting each other and facing all of the same issues as straight married couples, the show’s creator and writers regularly honor the reality of two gay men being deeply in love.
Modern Family is in good company, but we’ll certainly be rooting for them to win this award too. Let’s sweep awards season while we’re at it!
Catch Modern Family on Wednesday, January 25 at 9pm ET/PT on ABC.
