For the second time the SAG Awards’ top prize in comedy went to ABC’s “Modern Family.” The cast, which includes Colombian actress Sofia Vergara and scene stealer Rico Rodriguez, won for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Sunday night.
True to form the cast’s acceptance speech was nothing short of perfection. “I think it was the late, great W.C. Fields who said, ‘Never work with kids or animals.’ Well, he can kiss my ---,” began 13-year-old Nolan Gould before being humorously tugged away from the microphone according to UPI.com.
“On behalf of the entire cast and crew, the writers and producers and all the great guest cast we had on our show this year, we just want to thank you for letting us be a part of all your families,” continued Rodriguez, also 13, a bit more eloquently than his co-star.
Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet were also nominated for individual SAG awards for their work on the show.
