Sofia Vergara, 39
Sofia Vergara has now been nominated for two primetime Emmy awards for her role as Colombian wife and mother Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC's hit comedy, Modern Family. Vergara plays a woman married to a much older man (Ed O'Neill), who often mispronounces English words due to her thick accent. For example, Gloria says "old-tomato" instead of "ultimatum," "hair-rings" instead of "earrings," and "coal digger" instead of "gold digger." In the scene below, Gloria's family is poking fun of the way she mispronounces words, and at first Gloria is OK with it, but suddenly, she flips out to great comedic effect!
