Merritt Wever won for Best Supporting Actress - Comedy, besting Modern Family favorites Julie Bowen (a two-time winner for this show) and Sofia Vergara. Not to mention Jane Krakowski, who had one last chance to win a prize for her vain, insane, and altogether brilliant run as Jenna Maroney on 30 Rock. It was surprising not because Wever isn't a great actress — she is, and has been consistently terrific on Nurse Jackie — it's just that her show flies so low under the radar that it seemed impossible that she would ever win. Did the Modern Family gals split the vote? Did Emmy voters finally start watching screeners? Whatever the reason, this award was the kick-off to what turned out to be pretty strange night.
