Winning an Emmy is no laughing matter – unless you're on one of this year's nominees for outstanding comedy series. With the same six shows nominated this year as last year, will it be a repeat for Modern Family?
The show, which stars supporting actress nominee Sofia Vergara, follows members of an extended family through their amusing trials and tribulations. It will be up against fan-favorite Glee with its relatable characters and rousing musical performances; The Office, whose absurd boss, played by Steve Carell, has just taken leave; Parks and Recreation with its hilarious antics of an Indiana town's public officials; 30 Rock, NBC's smash hit comedy with outstanding actress nominee Tina Fey at the helm; and Big Bang Theory, which is all about making physics funny.

Mad Men may lead the Emmy nominations race, but when it comes to celebrating the nods, Amy Poehler says her Parks and Recreation cast has everyone beat.
"I would gather that we could give most shows a run for their money as far as straight-up partying goes," Poehler, 39, told PEOPLE Thursday morning after hearing her comedy picked up four nominations. "We have some strong men who can flip some tables if need be."
Adds the actress: "We've also got some youngsters who can go all night long. And we have some seasoned vets who know how to make it count."

CBS remains a man short of two and a half, with an NBC producer shooting down speculation that Rob Lowe – who recently joined the cast of Parks and Recreation – will jump ship to replace Charlie Sheen on the rival network.
Lowe, 46, has a "multiyear contract" with NBC and won't be leaving anytime soon, producer Michael Schur said Wednesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Schur said there was "no truth" to the rumors of Lowe replacing Sheen on Two and a Half Men, and added: "The Internet lit a match and set itself on fire."
