VIDEO: MODERN FAMILY's Steve Levitan Chats Emmy Win for Best Director
MODERN FAMILY co-creator Steve Levitan took home the Emmy Award for Best Director for a Comedy last night. Check out what he had to say to the press about his big win.
Critically lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom, "Modern Family" is also quickly cementing itself as a culturally defining series. The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family, with Jay Pritchett sitting at the head. By his side is his young, vivacious second wife, Gloria, who resists his old-fashioned ways -- an impulse that will become all the more interesting now that he and Gloria are expecting a baby of their own! This exciting new addition will bring lots of change for everyone, including Gloria's precocious son, Manny, who has always had his mom to himself.
Jay's grown daughter, Claire, is going through the opposite kind of adjustment with her husband, Phil, as they deal with eldest daughter Haley's leaving the nest and heading off to college. This new chapter brings on a whole set of new parenting firsts, while book-smart middle daughter Alex and scatterbrained son Luke are still keeping everything very lively back at home. And it's been a rollercoaster of a year for Claire's brother and Jay's grown son, Mitchell, who alongside loving life partner Cameron, went through a disappointing attempt to adopt a second child and find a sibling for little Lily. The young family will redirect their focus when they take an extended vacation -- and when Cameron returns to the workforce this year. Together these three families give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
