July 12-- For the first time in eight years, "Modern Family" will not compete for an Emmy for outstanding comedy series come September.
The long-running ABC half-hour show, which has won five times for comedy series, was shut out of the race when nominations were announced Thursday morning.
This year saw a sleuth of newcomers invade the category, including HBO's "Barry" and Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," which earned 13 and 14 nominations, respectively.
In addition to missing out on the comedy series category, the stars of "Modern Family" failed to earn nominations for the first time ever. The show boasts several previous Emmy winners, including Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet.
"Modern Family" earned just one nomination, for sound mixing for a comedy or drama series (half-hour) and animation.
