TV fans all over the nation are stocking up on popcorn and readying themselves for the year’s biggest night in small screen cachet—that’s right, the Primetime Emmy Awards are back and lighting up our flatscreens on Monday, August 25. Handsome funny man Seth Meyers is playing host, which obviously means a lot of laughs, stars will be strutting the red carpet (so take fashion notes) and all of our favorite shows will be battling it out for that coveted Emmy title at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre. Will newcomer Orange Is the New Black beat out Modern Family? Will the Drama Series winner honor the now legendary Breaking Bad—or will Matthew McConaughey’s gritty True Detective come out the winner? So many questions!
While we’re forced to wait until Monday for all of those answers (unless someone has a serious “in” at The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences), we still can entertain ourselves with a little Emmy-tantalization—real-estate style. Take a look at four California homes that could easily fit on one of these Emmy-worthy sets. Mad Men mid-century? Check. Modern Family mansion? Most definitely. Without further delay: read on—and if any of these homes tickle your fancy, by all means, click through the photo and get all of the delicious details.

3. Modern Family—(Nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series)
Jay, Gloria and Manny would be right at home in this stunning 4-bedroom Beverly Hills residence—and with 7,519 square feet at their disposal, they could also host one doozy of a family party (wouldn’t we love to be a fly on the wall for that one!).
