19 of 22: Sofia Vergara was nominated for the 2013 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in the ABC sitcom 'Modern Family.'
This is the third time the Colombian actress has received a nod. All three nominations have been given for her part as the sexy, younger wife of extended family patriarch Jay Pritchett, played by 'Married With Children' actor Ed O'Neill. Vergara has also been nominated for an Emmy for her role three times.

Eric Stonestreet, who plays her husband's son's partner, is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

'This is such an exciting week!' Vergara said in a statement. 'I'm so grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this nomination. There's no one more fun to play then 'Gloria' and I feel lucky every day I get to be on set with my 'Modern Family.' I'm so happy for Eric and of course the rest of my cast for our nomination.'

'Modern Family' earned a total of three nominations this year. The comedy show is up for Best Television Series - Comedy Or Musical -- a prize it won last year. It has been nominated for the top award four times since its 2009 debut. The show has also won its third Emmy in September.
