and the Poolie goes to...

1. Phil and Claire (Modern Family) 20 points
1st by Bonz, Mags, and Rizzo

This is Phil and Claire's first nomination and win for the best couple on television.  Phil Dunphy also won the Louis and Twitty Award earlier in the Poolie season.

As the above results show, I did not vote for Phil and Claire Dunphy as one of my top five couples of the season, but I can certainly see why others would have.  Phil is obviously a fantastic character, and Claire, well Claire is crazy.  When you put them together, you get a terrific marriage that usually ends in disaster.  Whether it's Phil's hi-jinx, or Claire's anal retentiveness, one of them is usually in trouble.  It's always up to the other one to solve the problem, and that solution is usually hilarious.  Phil and Claire Dunphy are certainly worth of the Zack and Kelly Award this season.
