With no less than 16 Primetime Emmy Awards under its belt, "Modern Family" has shown it can straddle the sweet spot between comically dysfunctional and heartwarming. Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill) is husband to Colombian diva Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and stepfather to Manny (Rico Rodriguez), who's more likely to be writing love letters than playing catch. Jay is also father to two strikingly similar siblings -- Claire (Julie Bowen) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) -- who both exhibit type-A, control-freak personalities. Mitchell's partner Cam (Eric Stonestreet) loves to photograph their sassy daughter Lily dressed up as Hollywood starlet. Claire's husband Phil (Ty Burrell) would rather be a cool best buddy to their three children than a parent, leading to some wacky antics on the part of popular girl Haley (Sarah Hyland), bookworm Alex (Ariel Winter) and walking catastrophe Luke (Nolan Gould).
