Washington, August 30 (ANI): ABC’s show ‘Mad Men’ has won Emmy awards for outstanding drama series third time in a row, while ‘Modern Family’ was named outstanding comedy series.

A 14-time nominee, ABC’s ensemble comedy netted an early win for supporting actor Eric Stonestreet, who plays the loveable Cameron Tucker.

The first-time winner called the gig “the most amazing job ever” onstage.

“All I wanted to be was a clown in the circus when I was a kid growing up,” People quoted Stonestreet as saying.

Another freshman series, ‘Glee’, collected an award for director Ryan Murphy and Jane Lynch, who won outstanding supporting actress in a comedy for her role as the scheming Sue Sylvester.

In a shout-out to the ensemble cast, she joked, “I love you. You’re young and you’re wonderful. You’re fresh-faced, and when I’m not seething with jealousy, I’m so proud of you.”

Edie Falco claimed outstanding actress in a comedy for Nurse Jackie and Jim Parsons won outstanding actor in a comedy for The Big Bang Theory. (ANI)
