He’s only 13-years-old… But Rico Rodriguez is a two-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner.
The Latino scene-stealer on ABC’s Modern Family and his fellow cast mates, including his on-screen mother Sofia Vergara, claimed their second straight Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series award at the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards during Sunday’s ceremony at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium.
In one of the highlights of the awards show, Modern Family’s adults stood back and let Rodriguez and the rest of the show’s talented child actors shine. Rodriguez, Nolan Gould and Ariel Winter took the podium and gave the acceptance speech after their show’s victory. The talented trio had a planned skit that was all kinds of adorable.
Much like Vergara’s hilariously translated Spanish speech at the Golden Globes, the kids’ speech was quite comical! During the speech, Rodriguez and Winter thanked actual people before Gould interjected by thanking SAG and AFTRA for “making sure we’re properly fed, have all our shots, cleaned and are put in our pens by sundown.”
Meanwhile, The Help swept the awards show, winning prizes for Best Cast, Best Actress (Viola Davis), and Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer). In the night’s biggest surprise, The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin bested The Descendants‘ George Clooney for Best Actor.
