Comedy Awards Winners in TV: 'Modern Family' and '30 Rock'
"Modern Family" won big at the first-time ever Comedy Awards which took place in New York City on Saturday, March 26. The show took home the coveted Comedy Series prize, beating out other nominees like "30 Rock" and "The Office". The ABC series got another kudo for Comedy Directing TV.
Although missing the chance to win Comedy Series award, "30 Rock" still managed to bag two gongs which are Comedy Writing TV and Comedy Actor TV. Alec Baldwin was the one honored with the best actor title, beating out his own co-star Tracy Morgan in addition to Steve Carell of "The Office" among others.
Comedy Actress TV went to Kristen Wiig through her performance on "Saturday Night Live".
