On July 19, Vergara received her third Emmy nomination for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in the U.S. sitcom “Modern Family.” Her nomination came one day after she was named the highest-paid actress on television.
The eleventh season of Family Guy will air in the U.S. on September 30. Other famous stars to appear on the popular show include Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds and Elizabeth Banks.
