"We are so honored to be nominated against the brilliant casts of 'Glee' and 'Nurse Jackie,' 'Big Bang' ratings – 'Theory.' But also I think we’d be doing the evening a great disservice if we didn’t mention the brilliant departing cast of '30 Rock' and 'The Office.' You all have set the comedy bar so high, and if we can just be half as brilliant and smart and wonderful as you are, then we’ve succeeded.
We’re all fans of yours, except for Aubrey, she has no idea who you guys are. But if we can absorb any of you into our cast, if you need jobs, please call our casting director, Jeff Greenberg."
— Jesse Tyler Ferguson, on behalf of the cast of "Modern Family," Ensemble in a Comedy Series
"Thank you. Oh, it is so good to be bad.
I am so pleased and so honored to receive this award. I’d love to thank our very courageous network, AMC, and our all- supportive studio, Sony Television. Our writers, directors, our beautiful crew in New Mexico who work so hard. Also, Vince Gilligan who wrote … the role of my career and I am forever grateful to you, sir."
— Bryan Cranston, Male Actor in a Drama Series
