Eric Stonestreet wins for gay dad role on 'Modern Family'

Hollywood - It was a gay night at the Emmys, as Jane Lynch thanked her wife and Eric Stonestreet won for his gay dad character on "Modern Family."

Lynch won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role as coach Sue Sylvester on "Glee."

Lynch thanked her parents and her wife, Lara Embry, whom she married in May.

"This is outlandish," said Lynch.

Stonestreet also won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor.

"All I wanted to be was a clown in the circus when I was a kid growing up," said Stonestreet.

Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted last year's Emmys, took a jab at this year's host, Jimmy Fallon.

"I want to thank the (TV) academy for allowing a gay man to host the Emmys two years in a row. Congratulations, Jimmy, you're doing a good job," Harris said.
