“Modern Family,” “Glee,” and “Mad Men” won top honors at the 2010 Emmy Awards on Sunday.
“Modern Family’s” Eric Stonestreet landed Outstanding Supporting Actor in A Comedy Series, beating “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm for the award.

“Modern Family” also took home the Best Writing Award. “Modern Family’s” biggest Emmy was the win for Outstanding Comedy Series.
"We are so grateful, we are so thrilled that families are sitting down together to watch a television show," said Steven Levitan, the show's co-creator. "We just want you to know, we just wanted to say we are so happy that you have let us into your families."
From “Glee,” Jane Lynch won Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy with creator Ryan Murphy winning Best Directing. Neil Patrick Harris claimed Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his frequent appearances on the hit TV show.
“Mad Men” won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing in A Drama Series, with creator Matthew Weiner and team’s work on the hit AMC show.
