Pop Culture: Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara’s Hilarious Bilingual Acceptance at the Golden Globes
During this year’s Golden Globes, Sofia Vergara managed to steal the spotlight in one the night’s most memorable acceptance speeches. Vergara commandeered the podium when her show Modern Family won for best comedy series—and gave the acceptance speech in Spanish. Since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association puts on the Golden Globes, Vergara told the audience that the Modern Family team would accept the award in two languages, Spanish and English. Vergara would speak in her native tongue… And, the show’s co-creator and executive producer Steven Levitan would translate. Levitan started interpreting Vergara’s words accurately, but quickly started making up things… to laughs from the audience. Talk about great comedic timing!
