Cast of Modern Family to Compete Against Each Other for Emmys

Ed O'Neill, the patriarch of Modern Family and its most famous cast member, was expected to submit himself for an Emmy in the Best Actor category this week, but Deadline reports that he will be submitting for Best Supporting Actor to show his solidarity with the rest of the ensemble cast. This means that cast members could be competing with each other and canceling out each other's votes if several of them end up nominated. Now that this has gotten so much attention, how funny would it be if none of them were? (Our personal vote for best ensemble would be for the cast of Party Down, but we don't live in that world.)
