At last night’s 64th Annual Emmy Awards, Modern Family’s youngest star Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, a.k.a. Lily Tucker-Pritchett, was adorable in a custom Tea Collection dress that got extra awww factor with a matching skirt made especially for her red carpet companion, stuffed elephant ”Nelly.” But to hear the gang tell it in a pre-taped sketch mock behind-the-scenes interviews, looks can be deceiving!
The 5-year-old, who joined the show in season 3, was painted by her castmates as a bullying terror on set, in a pre-taped sketch comedy act that left no doubt as to why the show snagged it’s third straight Best Comedy honors during the night.
“She’s a monster,” Anderson-Emmons’ on-screen dad Eric Stonestreet says in the sketch, and the young actress played the part perfectly. She slams the cast for missing table readings, disses Julie Bowen’s entire face implying she needs way more hair and makeup, jabs at Sofia Vergara’s thick accent complaining she can’t understand a word she’s saying and even causes her co-stars to fall out of their trailers. Finally, Ed O’Neill points out that Lily has been replaced before — almost undetected — and comically suggests a wig-clad Ken Jeong (Community) as a replacement. Safe to say the young actress has the cute factor—and comedic chops!—to keep her job.
Take a look below at a sketch of the dress and pictures of the young actress trying it on.
