Ed O’Neill just doesn’t understand why the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress landed in Jane Lynch’s hand instead of between Sofia Vergara’s Colombian mountains. In an interview with TV Guide, Al Bundy softly caressed Jane Lynch’s hair right before he slapped her in the face by calling her portrayal of Glee’s villainess with a heart of red polyester “one note.” Ed thinks his Modern Family trophy wife deserved that shit instead:
“I love Jane, honestly I do. I’m dying to star in one of Christopher Guest’s movies alongside her, but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character.
Sofia is just so, so funny. I don’t think people realize how hilarious she is. She’s so sharp with her wit, it’s amazing.”
ED, this is not how you do it! You don’t fire shots at Jane MONTHS later in an interview with a magazine. No. When Jane was on the Emmy stage with the award in her hand, that was the time to snatch the mic right out from under her mouth and put the “Immma let you…” shush on her before going on about how Sofia Vergara had the greatest one-note performance of all-time! Have we not learned anything from the Gospel According to Gay Fish?
