Modern Family has been on ABC for 10 seasons, and they’ve brought plenty of laughs over the years, even if the series has lost its touch in recent seasons. With no renewal in place for another season, series creator Steve Levitan has hinted that it might be time for the show to end. But before it does, the Dunphy and Pritchett families will deal with some hard times.

Modern Family is a staple of ABC’s programming slate, and it’s been a hit since debuting in the fall of 2009. The network ordered two more seasons of the series this past May, which will take the series to season 10. While co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan couldn’t be happier to have a series that has lasted this long, it sounds like that might also be the last one we’ll spend with the Pritchett and Dunphy families.

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.
On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.
Hit the jump for the full list of winners.

American Hustle took home the big prize at the SAG Awards on Saturday night, but as it turned out, its moment in the sun was fleeting. 12 Years a Slave and Gravity regained their awards season momentum at the Producers Guild of America Awards on Sunday night, as both won the top trophy in a tie — the first ever in PGA history.
The results are a blow to American Hustle‘s Oscar odds, since the PGA Awards are a fairly reliable predictor of the Best Picture trophy. Of the past 24 Darryl F. Zanuck Award winners, 17 have gone on to win Best Picture. The last time the two awards didn’t match up was 2006, when the PGA chose Little Miss Sunshine over The Departed.
Elsewhere, Frozen and We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks won prizes for best animated picture and best documentary, respectively, while Behind the Candelabra and Breaking Bad continued to steamroll the competition in the long-form TV and TV drama categories. Hit the jump for the full list of results.
