Outstanding Comedy Series

I caught up with Steve Levitan in Montreal recently at the 29th annual Just For Laughs Festival where he was voted “Best Comedy Writer Of the Year” for his work on Modern Family.
Unfortunately it was just before I found out that my friend Kent Emmons’ little 4 year-old daughter Aubrey Anderson-Emmons snagged the role of Lily in Modern Family! I’m her Uncle Jeffrey, and I’m so proud of her!
And check out my earlier blog post on Aubrey Anderson-Emmons right here!
The show debuts this Wed., 9/21/11, so make sure you’re watching!
