Ed O’Neill Insults Jane Lynch’s Emmy Award — Is Scrooge Here Early?
Can someone please explain to me why celebrities need to be complete assholes and insult other celebrities? Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill recently said, “I love Jane, honestly I do . . . but I don’t think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character.” So who put the stick in O’Neill’s ass, and why did he feel the need to gratuitously insult Lynch (who I have on very good authority is one of the nicest women in the business)? Here’s my educated guess: Ryan Murphy (the creator of Glee) recently insulted Modern Family for their portrayal of the gay couple on the show, saying it’s ridiculous that the two men never kiss. Modern Family creators were pissed at Murphy for his statements, though they suspiciously executed a gay kiss shortly thereafter. Perhaps O’Neill wants to keep the war going, and therefore decided to take a dig at Glee? Oh yeah — and Sofia Vargera lost the Emmy to Jane Lynch.
