Primetime Emmy Awards Snub Sofia Vergara; 'Game Of Thrones' Leads Nominees

The Primetime Emmy nominations came out Thursday morning, and one name is missing from the list was Sofia Vergara.

The “Modern Family” actress was snubbed for a fifth consecutive year. After four consecutive years of being nominated for best supporting actress in a comedy series for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s hit show, this time the Colombian bombshell wasn't even nominated.

However, Vergara will have the opportunity to lift an Emmy trophy with her cast as the hit TV show was nominated – unsurprisingly – for best comedy series. Her co-stars Julie Bowen (best supporting actress in a comedy series) and Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (both for best supporting actor in a comedy series) also received nominations.

"Modern Family," with four wins already has a chance to tie "Frasier" as the all-time winningest sitcom. It is up against "The Big Bang Theory," ''Louie," ''Silicon Valley" and ''Veep."

The fantasy saga “Game of Thrones” emerged as the leader in the nominations with 19 nods, including best drama series.

“Breaking Bad” was next in line with 16 nominations in its final season, including best drama and a best actor nod for star Bryan Cranston.

Other top nominees included the miniseries “Fargo,” with 18 nods, and “American Horror Story: Coven,” with 17. The AIDS drama “The Normal Heart” received 16 nominations including best TV movie.

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will have big-screen star power as this year’s Academy Awards best-actor winner Matthew McConaughey and nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor are both nominees for TV projects. So is past Oscar winner Julia Roberts.
