For Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet, the Emmy nominations announcement was all about managing expectations.

“I made myself stay up until about 2 a.m. hoping it would allow me to sleep through a non-phone call or allow me to be woken up by a phone call” after the pre-6 a.m. announcement in California. “That was my approach and it worked.”

“I’m bummed Ed (O’Neill)’s not in there,” he says. “It’s bittersweet because none of this really works without one another.”

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.
