This might not have much to do with entertainment per se, but the editor (WHO WON AN EMMY) of Modern Family was recently on a flight behind a drunken mess of a human who eventually got yelled at, made many racist comments, then was met by police once landed.

It was the greatest thing in the world. Well, the second greatest. The greatest was that Modern Family editor Ryan Case had an internet connection so she was able to live Tweet it. You can read the whole thing (I’m not embedding 64 Tweets) on Mashable, but here are a select few gems:

We’ve all been on flights with terrible people, but this one may take the cake. And while it sucked for Ryan Case, it was funny for the rest of us. And the Tweeting was probably cathartic enough for her not to kill the drunken loudmouth.

Rob Riggle Might Get A TV Show In The Form Of A ‘Modern Family’ Spinoff http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/rob-riggle-might-get-a-tv-show-in-the-form-of-a-modern-family-spinoff/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/rob-riggle-might-get-a-tv-show-in-the-form-of-a-modern-family-spinoff/#comments Mon, 30 Sep 2013 20:56:50 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257316 This might just be a gimmick to sell earplugs.

Rob Riggle, a character actor best known for screaming in films, is being bandied about as the star of a Modern Family spinoff. Riggle plays Tim Dunphy’s professional rival Gil Thorpe on the hit show, and the spinoff would focus on him, and his fun traits, like pun-making and generally being regarded as a bad guy.

Let’s get more of him! I smell a hit!

Riggle hasn’t had much success in TV, unless you consider Patrick Warburton the same person as Riggle, in which case, you could say he’s had moderate success. Nonetheless, Modern Family has been trying to get a spinoff, any spinoff, going to extend its brand, so good, bad, or otherwise, we could see this pushed through.

If you don’t want to tune in to have a bombastic man of dubious substance scream at you, well, you shouldn’t be watching network TV, now should you?

The Dumb Little Kid From ‘Modern Family’ Is Wayyyy Smarter Than All Of Us http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/the-dumb-little-kid-from-modern-family-is-wayyyy-smarter-than-all-of-us/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/the-dumb-little-kid-from-modern-family-is-wayyyy-smarter-than-all-of-us/#comments Wed, 10 Oct 2012 16:38:03 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=251388 You think he's one of those obnoxious kids that goes around asking everyone dumb riddles?

Full disclosure: We got most of the information for this story secondhand from two episodes of Ellen. I’m not saying that to have you question the veracity, but rather to let you know that we feel shame and inadequacy with our use of Ellen as not even a primary source. 

Nolan Gould, Modern Family‘s Luke, went on Ellen earlier this year to let the world know that he’s adorable and has an IQ of 150. I’m assuming this is very high because a) Why would you go on TV to let the world you are of normal intelligence?, and b) taking a 13 year-old boy on TV to make him admit he’s dumber than most people doesn’t really seem like something Ellen would do.

Some quick verification tells me, yes, 150 is high.

ANYWAY, Nolan Gould has taken the rest of this year and has graduated from high school. Or gotten his GED. Either way, pretty impressive for a 13 year-old. He’s considering enrolling in some community college classes online this fall, which means he’ll probably be directing Modern Family episodes before Thanksgiving, and possibly acquiring ABC, then Disney, in a complex financial scheme that you wouldn’t understand even if you had 42 MBA’s and the executive committee of Bain Capital working with you.

Ah, the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Where hot actresses from movies slum it with hot television actresses to prove who can wear the prettier dress. Also, awards are dispensed.

The winners often dictate who will walk away with the Academy’s gold so, the results of last night’s 2012 SAG Awards may prove to shake up the Oscars race. The biggest news this year isn’t who won, but who didn’t. Critical darling and Oscars odds-on favorite The Artist walked away with nary an award. Jean Dujardin nabbed Best Actor, but beyond that the film didn’t score. That’s what you get when you don’t memorize your lines.

On TV, the big winners, as always, were Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family. Though individual awards did go to Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange, and Betty White. Sofia Vergara won along with the rest of her co-stars for thier work as an ensemble on Modern Family. Perhaps she’ll be back next year for The Three Stooges.

You’re not actually going to see Sofia Vergara in Happy Feet Two, but you’ll hear a whole lot of her voice. The”Modern Familyactress plays Carmen, a penguin who presumably takes part in whatever adventure these penguins get up to in the film. Judging by her lack of upcoming projects, Vergara seems to be focusing primarily on “Modern Family” at this point, but she will appear in the Farrell brothers‘ take on The Three Stooges when it hits theaters next year.

If the early winners are any indication, this year’s Emmy Awards will be dominated by fatties, nerds, and fuglys. In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a huge dork and my face looks like an orangutan’s ass. As such, I’m allowed to make fun of these people, kind of like Chris Rock can drop N-bombs.

Early winners include noted dork Jim Parsons (Actor in a Comedy Series/The Big Bang Theory), the always rotund Melissa McCarthy (Actress in a Comedy Series/Mike and Molly), and nerd extraordinaire Ty Burrell (supporting actor in a comedy series/Modern Family). In fact, the only attractive person to win thus far has been Julie Bowen (supporting actress in a comedy series/Modern Family), but she managed to beat out the ridiculously hot Sofia Vergara, who makes her look unattractive by comparison. If this keeps up, Steve Buscemi and Peter Dinklage are friggen shoe ins.

David Cross To Bring A Family-Friendly Brand Of Funke To ‘Modern Family’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/david-cross-to-bring-a-family-friendly-brand-of-funke-to-modern-family/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/david-cross-to-bring-a-family-friendly-brand-of-funke-to-modern-family/#comments Fri, 02 Sep 2011 19:23:06 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=227025 You can go ahead and pick your favorite 'Arrested Development' quote and put it right here.

The post David Cross To Bring A Family-Friendly Brand Of Funke To ‘Modern Family’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
In a move that seems so intuitive that it feels like it happened two years ago, Modern Family has picked world-renowned analrapist David Cross to play a city councilman foil to Julie Bowen’s Claire Dunphy.

Parallels between Modern Family and Cross’ old stomping ground, Arrested Development have been evident since the former’s premiere two years ago, with both shows taking a similar deadpan approach to the time-tested television institution, the wacky family. While Arrested made its bones with sly, acerbic relationships between fundamentally bad people, Modern Family has found greater success (in terms of ratings, anyway) placing those subtle reactions in the context of good people who like each other. Crazy, right?

Cross made his mark on AD as Tobias Funke, the thinly-veiled homosexual therapist-turned actor mired in oblivion. While the edge he and the writers brought to that program will be tough to duplicate on the more-PG-rated Modern Family, Cross should be able to leverage enough innuendo to hopefully turn his season 3 stint into something longer, should it go over.

Also: Blue Man Group, taking chubbies, sucking them up, hide his thunder, leather daddy, Gothic Castle, how ARE you?, and Carl Weathers.

That should be good for now. (THR)

The post In Honor Of Ed O’Neill’s Walk-Of-Fame Star: 27 Awesome Al Bundy Animated Gifs appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Today, actor Ed O’Neill will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Given the fact that the veteran actor is currently on one of the most popular sitcoms on television, it’s easy to see why. But while a younger audience might know him best as Jay Pritchett from”Modern Family,” one should keep in mind that young people are stupid, and they don’t know what in the hell they’re talking about. For anyone with a brain, the name Ed O’Neill should be synonymous with one character and one character only: Al Bundy from “Married with Children.”

So, in honor of Ed O’Neill’s new star on the Walk of Fame, we’ve compiled 27 awesome Al Bundy animated gifs. Why? Because people love gifs, and it’s a hell of a lot easier than writing something original.

So sit back (preferably on your couch with one hand down your pants), relax, and enjoy the gifs. And congratulations to Ed O’Neill.

Why Did The Emmys Snub ‘Community’? Ask ‘Modern Family’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/why-did-the-emmys-snub-community-ask-modern-family/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/why-did-the-emmys-snub-community-ask-modern-family/#comments Thu, 14 Jul 2011 20:40:30 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=220301 With Modern Family getting so much love, there was no room for one of the best shows on television.

The post Why Did The Emmys Snub ‘Community’? Ask ‘Modern Family’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
To paraphrase Doug Benson, every year I watch the Emmy nominations, and every year I’m outraged that an old gay man’s opinion doesn’t match my own. This year was no exception. And while many deserving shows were snubbed, the complete absence of Community was by far the most insulting omission.

So, what is to blame for Community’s complete lack of nominations? In my opinion, it’s a bizarre fixation with the show Modern Family on the part of the nominators.

To be fair, given the nature of the Emmys, there will always be shows that are left out. After all, there are only so many spots to fill. If every deserving program was nominated, the nominations themselves would be meaningless. Take the Oscars. Being nominated for Best Picture used to mean something. But for the past few years, the Academy expanded the nominations to include 10 films, and the entire process become a joke, the punch line being that at least half of the nominees have absolutely no shot at winning. But with the Emmys, the old cliché stands, and it is still an honor to be nominated. That’s what makes Community’s absence so glaring.

How does such an innovative, ground breaking show get snubbed on so many different levels? More importantly, how is it that not one member of its talented ensemble cast received a nomination in the supporting actor category? Well, of the 12 available supporting actor nominations (six male, and six female), two went to cast members of Glee, and six went to the cast of Modern Family. When two-thirds of the available nominations are monopolized by two shows, with half going to one show in particular, there’s a problem. Throw in a few ridiculous pity nominations for Jon Cryer (he had to deal with Charlie Sheen) and Betty White (ha, the old lady made a sex joke), and you’re left with only two available spots for all the other shows on television, both of which can only be given to women. Given these circumstances, it’s easy to see how Community was left out.

Modern Family isn’t a bad show. In fact, it’s a great show, and it has a very strong cast. But the idea that almost every adult member of that cast should be up for an Emmy is ludicrous. Yes, it’s hard to pick and choose, but that’s the whole point of an award show. Does Sofia Vergara’s exaggerated broken-English really warrant a nomination over the performances of Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, and Yvette Nicole Brown? Does Eric Stonestreet’s over-the-top portrayal of a gay character really deserve a spot over Donald Glover and Danny Pudi, both of whom play hilarious characters that manage to defy traditional stereotypes? More importantly, do the people who nominate these shows actually watch anything other than Modern Family and Glee?

Of course, Community was overlooked in other categories as well. If ever there was a need for a laugh track, it was when Big Bang Theory was announced as a nominee for best comedy. And to be fair, there were some pleasant surprises. Louie C.K. is up for best actor. That in itself is a joke, but it’s nice to see such a talented guy getting the acknowledgment he deserves, even if it is in the wrong category. It was also nice to see that Martha Plimpton from Raising Hope and Amy Poehler from Parks & Recreation both ended up with noms, as did Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones. But with one of the best shows in recent memory sitting on the sidelines, even these deserving nominations rang hallow.

Again, I’m not bashing Modern Family or its cast, and I’m not even saying that Community is a better show (I happen to think it is, but we’re talking about nominations, so the point it irrelevant). Wha I am saying is that allowing one show to dominate the nomination process is a sure fire way to alienate a lot of talented, deserving artists. It’s also a surefire way to make the Emmys seem even more out of touch and irrelevant than they are.

Last night marked the end of “Modern Family’s” second season. The writers shied away from gimmicks and and cliff hangers (with one possible exception), and instead focused on crafting another solid episode. Once again, they managed to strike a balance between humor and sentimentality. This ability to push schmaltz to the absolute breaking point without crossing the line is what makes”Modern Family” the most tolerable family sitcom in recent memory.

“The One That Got Away” begins with the Dunphy clan preparing gifts for Jay’s birthday. The children are making a video tribute, Phil has bought a bottle of wine, and Claire and Mitchell have decided to retake a cherished childhood picture. Phil did the same thing for his parents, and it went over like gangbusters.

Meanwhile, Cameron is at his wit’s end with Lily, and decides he needs a break. As such, he pawns her off on Gloria, claiming that his daughter really enjoys spending time with her step-grandmother, and even tried to say her name. Did this really happen…

Cameron isn’t the only one with problems. Manny has a crush on a girl, but she’s really into sports. As you can see from the Gif, he’s not the most athletic kid. But Cam agrees to help him learn. Their time together ends up planting an idea in Cam’s head, but I’ll save that for later.

Claire and Mitchell return to their childhood home to take the photograph, but the owners are out. Rather than wait for them to return, the two decide to hop the fence. Unfortunately, a large dog isn’t cool with their plans, and chases them up into a tree house. To make matters worse, the two have no cell phones, and their car has been towed.

Where’s Phil during all this? Glad you asked. While getting Jay a card, he runs into his old college rival. After an embarrassing exchange, he then runs into Gloria and begins to walk with her. When passers by begin to mistake him for Gloria’s husband, he decides to use Gloria as a way to get back at his nemesis, by convincing him that he has married a gorgeous woman. However, the plan backfires when his nemesis admits he was always jealous of Phil for dating Claire. Either way, at least we got a nice shot of Sofia Vergara‘s breasts.

So, where is the birthday boy during all this? Well, he’s supposed to be fishing. Unfortunately, his family keeps pulling him away from it. Cameron asks him to pick up his own cake after being banned from the bakery. Gloria forgets her cell phone, which means Jay gets stuck picking up the dog. He also gets stuck rescuing Claire and Mitchell. To top it all off, the dog steals his birthday cake.

In the end, Jay is upset about the way his birthday turned out, but, as always, the show ends on a happy note. His birthday may have been ruined, but at least he’s still spending time with people who love him, and that’s what’s important (according to television). Speaking of family, the closest thing to a cliff hanger was the revelation that Cameron wants to adopt another child, specifically, a boy. Apparently his time with Manny really made him baby crazy. I assume they are talking about adopting a baby, and not a 15-year old Guatemalan boy. But I guess I’ll have to wait until next season to find out.

Last night’s”Modern Family” began with Alex Dunphy’s 8th-grade graduation ceremony, where she, as valedictorian, was about to give a speech. Why an 8th grade class needs a valedictorian is beyond me, but whatever. I guess they do things differently in the land of make believe, so who am I to judge? In attendance, we see all of the family, with the notable exception of Phil and Claire. Oh where, oh where can they be? I’m glad you asked (even if you didn’t) because all will be explained in flashback form.

Four hours earlier, everyone is preparing for the ceremony, including Cameron and Mitchell. While the two are having an extended conversation about birthing farm animals (and Claire), Cameron falls into a kiddie pool in the backyard. Mitchell laughs uncontrollably at the site of his husband falling, which doesn’t go over too well with Cam.

Meanwhile, Jay has returned home from the doctor with a droopy eye. Gloria and Manny worry, thinking he may be having a stroke, but Jay assures them it is nothing. What has actually happened is that Jay was talked into getting Botox by his dermatologist, and there was a slight mishap, causing his eye to temporarily droop. He confesses that he hasn’t felt this stupid since he bought a bracelet that supposedly helped to maintain balance. Cue flashback within a flashback of Jay getting knocked over while demonstrating the bracelet.

Back at the Dunphy’s, Alex is practicing her speech, when Haley overhears it and is horrified by the content. Alex is using the ceremony as a chance to settle old scores, and plans on mocking the popular kids for being vapid. Despite her sister’s protests, Alex plans to go ahead with the speech.

Later, the family has met up at Jay’s house for pre-ceremony refreshments. Mitchell tells the story of Cam falling in the pool to his relatives, but no one seems to find it funny. In fact, they go as far as to chastise him for being insensitive. But when Cam accidentally walks into a closed door, they all break down and laugh, causing Cam to remark that cruelty must be genetic.

As the family sets out to the ceremony, Jay’s driveway gate malfunctions, trapping the family inside. Since no one is able to figure out what is wrong with the gate, Gloria comes up with a plan. Claire and Phil can ride her bike to the ceremony, and the others will catch up when they can. Aside from advancing the plot, this scene allows for the bouncing of Sofia Vergara.

Desperate to arrive on time, Claire decides to go with the plan. Using his cheerleading skills, Phil pushes his wife up and over the gate. He asks Jay to do the same for him, but Jay walks away silently rather than touch Phil’s ass.

Haley and Alex arrive at the ceremony, and Haley makes one last plea to her sister about reconsidering the speech. She tells Alex that just because her classmates seem vapid, it doesn’t mean they don’t have their own problems. For example, Haley is worried because she has failed a class, which means she has to attend summer school and may have a hard time getting into college. For some reason, this causes Alex to reconsider. I guess the fact that Haley is failing her class because she’s a vapid moron was lost on her.

Although they look ridiculous, Claire and Phil seem to be making good time on Gloria’s tandem bike. However, the chain breaks, and the couple is left stranded on the side of the road.

Luckily, Phil is able to utilize his knowledge of Spanish to communicate with some gardeners, who give them a lift to the school. The fact that the gardeners speek perfect English doesn’t hurt matters.

Claire and Phil arrive just in time, although they are forced to scale a hill to get there.

Alex goes ahead with her speech, and instead of being vindictive, follows her sister’s advice and sticks mainly to clichés and song titles. The crowd responds positively, but I threw up a little in my mouth.

As the episode closes, Phil and Claire are saddened when Alex decides to go to a party rather than go out to dinner with the family. But when Haley offers to go instead, they feel as if their prodigal daughter has returned, and instantly begin smothering her.

Modern Family” has a little something for everyone: humor, hot women, gay dudes. But up until now, the show has been lacking a key ingredient found in most other popular family sitcoms: a dog. The Brady’s had Tiger. The Bundy’s had Buck. And now the Pritchett’s have Stella.

We begin with trouble at the Dunphy’s. When it comes time to discipline the children, Claire once again finds herself in the role of “bad cop.” To make matters worse, she catches Phil undermining her in front of the children while she is attempting to lay down the law.

Meanwhile, Mitchell is faced with problems of his own. Cameron has come down with a nasty bug, which is jeopardizing their plans of going to the Lady Gaga concert. Mitchell is torn. He wants to take care of his partner, but he was really excited about the concert (Lady Gaga being one of the few gay stereotypes he allows himself).

Back at the Dunphy’s, Claire is demanding Phil take on the role of disciplinarian. She decides to take the boys to the go cart track, leaving her husband in charge of getting the girls to clean the bathroom.

Cameron’s situation is not improving. To make matters worse, Mitchell’s attempts to get permission to attend the concert alone fall on deaf ears.

As these two story lines unfold, Jay and Gloria are dealing with an unexpected guest. Well, unexpected on Jay’s part. Gloria has invited Guillermo, the man who bags her groceries, to talk to Jay about business. He has a plan that will revolutionize the $40 billion dog-training business. Jay points out that dog-training market is no where near that lucritive. But that doesn’t stop Guillermo and his do Stella from demonstrating their ridiculous method, which involves giving dogs a less-than-delicious biscuit when they are bad.

The dog isn’t the only one that needs discipline. Despite Phil’s requests to clean the bathroom, the girls attempt to flee to the movies before finishing their chores. This doesn’t sit well with Phil, who chases them into the street and jumps on the hood of their car.

Claire, on the other hand, is enjoying her time as the “good cop.” In fact, she might be having a little too much fun. She drives recklessly while go carting, and encourages the boys to eat loads of junk food. Her dramatic change leave the boys confused, and in Luke’s case, physically ill.

While go carting, Claire gets a call from Mitchell, asking for advice. Should he ditch sick Cameron and go on his own? When Mitchell is the sick one, Cameron bends over backwards to make him comfortable. Despite this fact, Mitchell decides he’s going to Lady Gaga.

Meanwhile, Phil has taken his role of “bad cop” to the extreme. He is forcing the girls to clean all the bathrooms in the house and unclog the drains. He also duct-tapes their laptops shut. To top it off, he’s not allowing them to eat.

Mitchell attempts to break the news to Cameron, only to find his partner is asleep. He takes the opportunity to make a run for it…

But is caught at the front door just before leaving. Embarrassed by his bad behavior, Mitchell promises to be a better partner. However, in the middle of his apology, Cameron passes out again, and Mitchell bolts for the door.

After hearing Guillermo’s awful sales pitch, Jay decides to be honest, telling him the dog treat idea is horrible. Guillermo is devastated, but grateful for the honest advice. He decides to get his life back on track by returning to school. However, this requires him to quit his job and move in with his sister, which means he has to give up the dog. Gloria volunteers to take in the animal, but Jay won’t have it and drives it to the pound. But after looking into Stella’s eyes, he has a change of heart, and Stella returns home to live with the family.

Back at the Dumphy’s, Claire returns home with a van full of Luke’s vomit. When Phil sends the girls, who are now little more than slaves, to clean the mess, Claire takes pity on them and sends them to eat. Phil and Claire both agree that things were better off as they were before, and that switching the “good cop/bad cop” roles was a bad idea.

And when Cameron wakes up from his nap, he is happy to see Mitchell watching over him. He thanks his partner for skipping the concert, but then informs him that his necklace is still glowing. Caught red handed, Mitchell panics, and the show ends.

What did you think of last night’s episode? Does Stella help round out the cast?

Two interesting actors are joining two interesting TV shows. Interesting? My verdict: “yes.”

Fans of gritty badassitude, which I hope you are, will also likely be fans of this team-up: Danny Trejo and “Sons of Anarchy.” The Machete star joins FX’s motorcycle drama as Romero “Romeo” Parada, a charmingly kickass Mexican military man who will pal around with the SAMCRO crew. He also recently guested on ABC’s”Modern Family,” but I didn’t see the episode. I assume him and Grandpa Al Bundy came to blows. (TVLine)

Meanwhile, Mos Def will do Showtime‘s “Dexter,” and by that I mean he’ll star on the actual show, not do his own sweded version. The actor / rapper will play a newly religious ex-con in multiple episodes. However, violence still seems to follow him wherever he goes, despite claims of being reformed. He joins previously announced Colin Hanks as one of the new season’s villains. (Hollywood Reporter)

For today’s Gif Recap, we decided to go with”Modern Family‘s” Mother’s Day episode. Why? Because Ed O’Neill is awesome, Sofia Vergara is hot, and socially acceptable gay stereotypes are hilarious.

The episode starts off with the Dunphy clan preparing gifts for Mom’s big day. But excitement turns to confusion when Claire comes in wearing an old tee-shirt with hand marks on her breasts. Apparently, it was a Mother’s Day gift from when the kids were younger, but Haley thinks the shirt makes it look like her mother was sexually assaulted by a creepy neighbor with small hands.

While the Dunphy’s are busy with their gifts, Cameron and Mitchell are having a celebration of their own, as Mitch prepares breakfast in bed for his husband. However, after realizing it is Mother’s Day, Cameron rejects the gift, insulted by the fact that he is viewed as the wife and mother in the relationship.

Meanwhile, Phil and Jay are cooking a Mother’s Day meal while the women and children are off on a hike. The children are completely bored by the hike, while back at the house, Jay does his best not to be annoyed by Phil’s constant assholery (dancing and singing, impersonating Julia Child, wearing “onion glasses” to avoid tears, etc.).

During the meal prep, Phil finds a “recipe for a perfect mom” that Jay wrote as a gift for his own mother as a boy. It triggers a flood of memories for Jay, and he begins to tear up. When Phil comments on it, Jay quickly puts on the onion glasses and pretends nothing is wrong.

At the canyon, the children’s constant complaining has forced the mothers to leave them behind in the hope of teaching them a lesson. On the other hand, Cameron and Mitchell are doing their best to patch things up while attending a Mother’s Day barbecue with Lily. However, Cameron’s insecurities are brought back into the open when the other partygoers force him to be in the Mom’s photograph, proving that it’s not only Mitchell who views him as “the woman” in the relationship.

At the Canyon, Gloria and Claire, now sans children, are discussing the selfishness of their offspring. Claire admits that sometimes she would like nothing more than to hit her children, a revelation that causes Gloria to recoil in disgust. However, after further coaxing from Claire, Gloria admits that sometimes Manny doe drive her crazy, and she wishes that he would act more like other boys his age (going outside, throwing a ball, stealing) rather than writing poetry and following her around the house. Surprise, surprise: Manny is standing right behind her and hears the whole confession.

Back in the kitchen, Phil tries to comfort Jay with a hug. Jay wants nothing to do with it, and Phil is forced to wonder, as he does in every damn episode, why Jay can’t show his emotions.

Still reeling from the photo incident, Cameron is being extremely touchy about the issue of his masculinity. So when a group of children at the park ask him to throw their ball back to them, he takes the simple request as an insult. Determined to prove himself as a man, he heaves the ball as far as he can, hitting a random elderly biker in the process.

Back at the canyon, Gloria manages to make up with Manny, telling him that she was lying in order to make Claire feel better about her parenting issues. Claire doesn’t buy it, but lets it go, attempting to make up with her own kids. However, the Dunphy children have formed a pact, and are refusing to apologize. Once back at the house, Cameron begins drinking scotch to help drown his sorrows. Mitchell comes over to cheer him up by showing him a mother’s day card. This does nothing to help, and Cameron rips it to shreds.

After informing his angry husband that Manny gave that card to Gloria, Mitchell explains that the best qualities of a mother (warmth, kindness, etc.) are all traits that Cameron has in spades, and he shouldn’t be insulted by the comparison. Cameron is relieved about the entire situation, especially since it means he can stop drinking scotch, which burns his throat. During the family meal, Jay is once again brought to tears by the thought of his mother. The outburst of emotion causes the Dunphy children to break down and apologize to their mother, and everyone at the table aside from Manny and Mitchell take part in a group hug. Manny offers to hug Mitchell, but he callously declines.

As the night winds down, the Dunphy children fall asleep beside their mom on the couch. Phil attempts to capture the touching moment with a photo, but is chastised by his ungrateful family when the flash wakes them up. I assume that the next few episodes will involve Phil abandoning his family and in order to kill Jay and have sex with Gloria, but only time will tell.

So, what did you think about last night’s episode? Personally, I thought it was a little too sappy, but then again, maybe I’m just upset that Jay didn’t use the Al Bundy crying face when he had his break down.

Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara is a beautiful woman. And while I would go as far as to say she’s the total package, certain parts of her lend themselves particularly well to animated Gifs. As such, I spent the better half of the day combing the Internet in search of the best Sofia Vergara animated Gifs that Google Image Search had to offer. And as the following 17 examples prove, my efforts have paid off. It was exhausting, but somebody had to do it. So without further ado, here are 17 bounce-tastic Sofia Vergara Gifs.

The 2011 Writers Guild Award winners are a lot of familiar names and faces. The WGAs cover 3 areas, 2 of which I care about: Movies, TV, and video games. Here’s a list of the winners that have been announced so far (video games and honorary awards excluded because I ain’t no nerd):

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY  Inception, Written by Christopher Nolan; Warner Bros.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY   The Social Network, Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin; Based on the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich; Sony Pictures

DRAMA SERIES  ”Mad Men,” Written by Jonathan Abrahams, Lisa Albert, Keith Huff, Jonathan Igla, Andre Jacquemetton, Maria Jacquemetton, Brett Johnson, Janet Leahy, Erin Levy, Tracy McMillan, Dahvi Waller, Matthew Weiner; AMC

TV EPISODIC DRAMA – any length – one airing time  “The Chrysanthemum and the Sword” (“Mad Men“), Written by Erin Levy; AMC

TV COMEDY SERIES ”Modern Family,” Written by Jerry Collins Paul Corrigan, Alex Herschlag, Abraham Higginbotham, Elaine Ko, Joe Lawson, Steven Levitan, Christopher Lloyd, Dan O’Shannon, Jeffrey Richman, Brad Walsh, Ilana Wernick, Bill Wrubel, Danny Zuker; ABC

TV EPISODIC COMEDY – any length – one airing time  “When It Rains, It Pours” “30 Rock“), Written by Robert Carlock; NBC

The most interesting thing here is Christopher Nolan getting an award for Inception, after what many perceived as a snub when the Oscar nominees were announced. And the fact that “Mad Men” took both the overall series category AND the episodic category just goes to show that it’s the best show on TV.

Here are some more winners, and you can see a complete list at Deadline.

COMEDY / VARIETY – (INCLUDING TALK) SERIES

On screen since the age of five, “Modern Family” actress Sarah Hyland only recently gained mainstream attention, propelled into the spotlight by her role as the Dumphy household’s boy-crazy, perpetually-texting teenage daughter. More than just a pretty face, Hyland brings a distinct comedic flair to the character, deftly satirizing her generation’s minimal attention span and all-out dependency on digital social outlets. Also, she’s twenty years old, so it’s totally cool to gawk.
