Burrell is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Phil Dunphy on Modern Family.
I am honored and humbly surprised that this good fortune continues. I’ve never had something so wonderful happen four years in a row before, other than winning the New York state lottery from 1993 to ’97. I share this with the entire cast and crew of Modern Family. I’m sure it’s not surprising to anyone who’s ever worked on a television show, but our writers are the reason we’re still in this position. I’m eternally grateful for their talent and surprising good looks.
