After a long wait and much anticipation, the 64th Annual Emmy’s nominees are finally here and some of our favorite Latino stars have another reason to smile.
Sofia Vergara is the highest paid TV actress for a reason. The Colombian bombshell was nominated for the third consecutive year, for Best Supporting Actress in a comedy, for her sassy role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in ABC’s “Modern Family.”
She will be competing for the award against Mayim Bialik (Big Bang Theory), Kathryn Joosten (Desperate Housewives), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie), and Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live).
Hope the sexy Latina comes out on top!
“Modern Family” seems to be doing well at the Emmy’s this year. The show was nominated for Best Comedy. Also, four “Modern Family” actors, Ed O’Neill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ty Burrell, and Eric Stonestreet, were all nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a comedy.
Last year, “Modern Family” took home the Best Direction Award, Best Writing Award, Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress Awards and Outstanding Comedy Series Award.
Our favorite red-headed Mexican-American comedian, Louis C.K., was nominated for Outstanding Writing for a comedy in his own show, FX’s “Louie.
AMC’s “Breaking Bad” also made it on the nominees list for Best Drama. Our favorite Latino from the show, Steven Michael Quezada (plays DEA agent Steven Gomez) did not make it on the list this year. But his right hand man, Bryan Cranston (plays Walter White), was nominated for Best Lead Actor in a Drama.
Another Latino that made it on the list is , for Best Guest Actor in a comedy in Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” The Cuban actor was added to the 3rd season of Boardwalk Empire; maybe we will see him on the list next year for his role as Gyp.
A star that surprisingly did not make it on the list was Eva Longoria, though cast mate Kathryn Joosten was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.” Hope there is no rivalry there.
AMC’s “Mad Men” and FX’s “American Horror Story” are taking the lead this year, with 17 nominations each.
The 64th Annual Emmy Awards will air on September 23 at 7 p.m on ABC.
