In addition to winning the award for outstanding comedy for the third year in a row, “Modern Family” swept both supporting acting awards for comedies and picked up another for directing.
Eric Stonestreet claimed the first Emmy Award Sunday night, honored with the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his “Modern Family” role as Cameron Tucker.
After a summer of heated salary negotiations that led to a lawsuit, the cancellation (and subsequent rescheduling) of a table read and a tense week of back-and-forth negotiations, the six adult actors on ABC’s top-rated comedy have agreed in principle to new contracts with producer 20th Century Fox Television.
The end to the messy stalemate allows the fourth season of the Emmy-winning comedy to begin production on time next week in advance of its Sept. 26 premiere. The series is a profit center for both 20th TV and ABC, for which it regularly draws 13.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen. In 2011, Modern Family generated $164 million in advertising revenue for ABC, up 40 percent from a year earlier, reports Kantar Media.
