Sofia Vergara was nominated Wednesday for the Screen Actors Guild award for best actress in a comedy for her work on the ABC series "Modern Family."

This is the 40-year-old Colombian's seventh nomination - four as part of the cast and three individually - for the SAG awards.

Vergara took home one of the awards as a member of the show's cast the last two times the SAG awards were presented, but she has never won in the best actress in a comedy series category.

This year, she is vying for the award with Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie"), Tina Fey ("30 Rock"), Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") and Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland").

The series favorites for the 19th edition of the awards, which will be presented Jan. 27 in Los Angeles, are "Modern Family," with four nominations, followed by "Boardwalk Empire," "Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "Game Change," "Homeland" and "30 Rock," with three each.

"Les Miserables," "Lincoln" and "Silver Linings Playbook," each with four nominations, are the most highly favored films for SAG awards this year. EFE
