Perhaps, the fourth time’s a charm.
Or at least that’s what fans of Sofía Vergara’s Gloria on ABC’s “Modern Family” are hoping after the Colombian actress was nominated for her fourth consecutive Emmy on Thursday. Actress Morena Baccarin and comedian Louis C.K. also made the list of nominees for television’s big night.
Vergara is once again competing against her co-star Julie Bowen -- who won in 2011 and 2012 -- for the Emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series”; and “Modern Family” will be vying for it’s fourth consecutive win as “Outstanding Comedy Series.”

However, the series is facing fierce competition in the category from Louis C.K.’s “Louie.” The Mexican-American actor is also nominated for “Outstanding Actor In A Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy” for Saturday Night Live.
Showtime’s “Homeland” proved to be the big winners last year when it took the Emmy for “Best Drama;” and this year Brazilian actress Morena Baccarin is nominated for her role as Jessica Brody in the series.
The Emmys will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and be broadcasted through CBS on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
