Last night was the Modern Family 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which is basically an orgy of television shows from Glee to Deadliest Catch to The Daily Show.
Jane Lynch spread her Sturdy Wings and soared as the hilarious hostess of the evening. The skits throughout the show were pretty funny for a stodgy TV awards show. Pre-recorded video segments depicted a world where all television show characters lived together in one building:

Commenter Kate enlightened me about the positive qualities of Sofia Vergara, an actress with whom I've been in a feud (in my head) for over a year. I still think the tranny is faking that accent, but I will probably watch at least one episode of Modern Family now, after the show nabbed five awards.
Go here to relive the evening. Live chats are the future.
