Drumroll please: Sofia Vergara has snagged a Golden Globe nomination for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie,” it was announced Thursday morning.
“Honest Company” founder and actress Jessica Alba was on hand to name nominees alongside Megan Fox and Ed Helms with The Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the Beverly Hilton. And while “Modern Family” has been nominated for awards at the prestigious ceremony every year since 2010, Vergara makes history this year as the only Latina nominated in the “Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie” category.
The 40-year-old Colombian comedian is nominated for the award alongside Hayden Panettiere (“Nashville”), Archie Punjabi (“The Good Wife”), Sarah Paulson (“Game Change”) and Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey”).
Vergara, who is currently filming “Fading Gigolo,” has been nominated for a Golden Globe in “Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role” category both in 2011 and 2012, but has yet to earn a win and take home a trophy.
Also given a nod? “Argo” – based on CIA agent Tony Mendez’ dramatic rescue of six Americans during the Iran hostage crisis – which earned nominations for “Best Motion Picture, Drama,” “Best Director, Motion Picture” and “Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture.”
