SAG Awards: Sofia Vergara's statue goes missing

Sofiavergara After emerging from the photo tent without a drop of sweat on her brow, Sofia Vergara answered questions from TV crews alongside the cast of “Modern Family” after the sitcom's win for comedy show ensemble. Somewhere along the way she handed off her statue and then lost track of the person she handed it to. As she was being hastily ushered into a photo suite, she looked around a bit frantically.

“Where’s my award?” she asked. No one seemed to know.

“Hey, the award!” she said again, leaning out of the photo suite. Suddenly a handler raced up to her with the statue.

“I need the award,” she said, smiling with relief.
