MODERN FAMILY - Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning 'Modern Family' returns for its fourth season, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 (9:00-9:31 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. In the Season 4 premiere, 'Bringing Up Baby,' Jay's birthday is upon us again and, as before, he makes it well-known that he wishes to keep it as low key as possible, with no grand gestures or surprises. But leave it to the family to miss the mark yet again! Phil takes Jay on a very unconventional fishing trip with his buddies, and Gloria struggles with how to break the pregnancy news to him. Meanwhile, Dylan moves into the Dunphy household temporarily, and Mitch and Cam decide to look into adopting a cat as they continue to cope with their failed attempt to adopt another child.

"Modern Family" will not be in the running for a Golden Globe award this January. Nominees for the 72nd annual awards were announced Thursday morning, and the long-running comedy failed to pick up a nod in the "Best Television Series -- Musical or Comedy" category.

"Modern Family" has been nominated in said category for the past five consecutive years, and took home the award back in 2012. Cast members who had also been honored with nominations in the past -- Sofia Vergara was nominated four times and Eric Stonestreet, three -- were also shut out this year.

Series that did make the cut this year include "Girls," "Jane the Virgin, "Orange Is the New Black," "Silicon Valley," and "Transparent."

Other notable omissions were "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," which took home the Golden Globe in the category at last year's awards, as well as "The Mindy Project," and "Parks and Recreation."

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe awards, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, will air on Sun., Jan. 11 2014 at 8pm EST.
