At Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Modern Family fans will have their eyes on breakout star Jesse Tyler Ferguson – and his hot date, lawyer Justin Mikita. (Once they stop gawking at Sofia Vergara, of course!)

The new couple have been hitting the awards show circuit – and the town – together as of late, and releasing a steady stream of smitten photos via Twitter.

The actor, 35, brought Mikita, 25, to an Elle Women in TV event Thursday night and then to Entertainment Weekly’s bash at the Chateau Marmont Saturday night, where they hung out together outside for 15 minutes before joining the party.

The pair hit the red carpet together Sunday night at the Shrine Exhibition Center in Los Angeles. Earlier that afternoon, Mikita Tweeted to Modern Family star Nolan Gould, 12, “hope you brought a poncho! See you soon :)”
