Emmys: Will 'Modern Family,' 'Glee' or 'The Big Bang Theory' win for comedy? [Poll]

July 14, 2011 |  3:00 pm


At this early point in the Emmy derby, many pundits are betting that "Modern Family" will win for outstanding comedy series for a second year in a row. But beware: The Emmys are not easy to predict. Upsets happen all the time.

"Modern Family" has never faced off against "The Big Bang Theory," which is TV's most popular sitcom, but "Bang" may be cursed at this year's Emmys. It doesn't have a nomination for writing or direction. Usually that spells doom. If that's true again, then we can also rule out the possibility of "Glee" or "Parks and Recreation" triumphing.

"Modern Family" and "30 Rock" are nominated for both writing and directing; "The Office" is up for writing.
