“Modern Family,” last year’s top comedy series, was the most-nominated sitcom with 17 bids.

“Modern Family,” which should be favored to repeat as best comedy, once again dominated the supporting acting categories with Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara representing the show on the women’s side and Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ty Burrell earning nominations for the men. O’Neill’s nomination was particularly satisfying, since he was the only member of the show’s main cast be excluded last year.

Smack in the middle of the self-congratulatory lovefest that is awards season, Hollywood’s word-processing set has released its own would-be honorees, announcing the TV nominees for the 2010 Writers Guild of America Awards.

ABC’s Modern Family and Fox’s Glee both scored multiple nods in their freshman year, not only as Best New Series but with a pair of nominations for top Comedy Series—which, lest we forget, is no vanity, thanks-for-playing nod.

The winners will be announced Feb. 20.
