One show that seems to get lots of love from critics, audiences and the Emmys every year is the wildly-successful Modern Family. But are the stars of the show letting it go to their heads?
"It's very humbling,' said Sarah Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy on the show. "We're going into our fifth season and to be getting the amount of nominations still, that we are getting? I'm so grateful to be a part of a show that everyone really loves, because I love it just as much as everyone else."
This year, the show is nominated for Outstanding Comedy, Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara are both nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy, and three of the shows leads, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ty Burrell, and Ed O'Neill are all nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy.
"Whenever I get nominated for something like this, it's always surprising to me," said veteran actor O'Neill, who plays Jay Pritchett on the show. "You have to feel fortunate. I always do."

Season 5 of Modern Family begins September 25 at 9/8c, on ABC.
