WHERE’S your cupcake? Nolan Gould, the trouble-making boy on Modern Family, asked Ariel Winter, who plays his sister Alex, backstage at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

After only one season, Modern Family had just come of age, capturing the Emmy for Best Comedy Series and unseating 30 Rock, the winner for the past three years.

Behind the scenes, E! channel was handing out cupcakes, which Winter skipped, smartly, as Gould was soon whining: “Chocolate’s dripping everywhere!” He was doing what many 11-year-old boys do best – shouting.

Meanwhile, Rico Rodriguez, 12, who plays the old soul Manny (son of Vergara’s character; stepson of O’Neill’s), was on the phone with his father, who was wishing him a good night. He had school on Monday morning.

WGA Awards Backstage Report – Modern Family

Filed under: Modern Family News 

The team from ‘Modern Family,’ led by Steve Levitan, revealed that his characters are Hawaii-bound for the show’s freshman finale. “It won’t be about Hawaii,” Levitan explained. “It’ll be about a family on vacation.”

Levitan says that ‘Modern Family’ won’t be seeing a lot of celebrity cameos. “We like our cast,” he said. “We get approached more and more every week by people who want to do the show. We’re so flattered, but we want to keep it on check and not do too many guest stars. Our cast can do no wrong in my eyes. Only when it’s exactly right do we want to bring someone in.”

Levitan made two trips to the press room during the evening. His team won for New Series and Levitan picked up a solo statue for Episodic Comedy for writing the show’s pilot. (The latter award tied with an episode ’30 Rock,’ titled ‘Apollo, Apollo.’)

‘Modern Family’ writer on WGA win: TV is ‘so screwed up and mismanaged’

Modern Family took home the trophy for achievements on the small screen at the annual Writers Guild Awards, held yesterday in Los Angeles.

New series: Modern Family.

Episodic comedy: “Apollo, Apollo,” 30 Rock, written by Robert Carlock, and the pilot of Modern Family, written by Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.

While accepting one of two awards for Modern Family, creator/executive producer Steve Levitan told the crowd that because TV was “so screwed up and mismanaged,” many of his writing peers have been rooting for the single-camera comedy’s success on ABC. “Thanks for that, Jeff Zucker,” Levitan said — a reference to the NBC Universal Chairman’s failed attempt to launch Jay Leno’s show in prime time, which put many writers out of work this season.
