“Mad Men” is winner of a third consecutive Emmy Award as best drama series. The drama is set in the advertising world in a changing 1960s America.
The best drama series award for “Mad Men” was its third consecutive one. Series creator Matthew Weiner seemed to take the night in stride. “I knew one day I would run somewhere and win a trophy,” Weiner joked earlier in the ceremony when he dashed to the stage to claim the Emmy for best drama series writing with Erin Levy.
Additionally, Eric Stonestreet of “Modern Family” and Jane Lynch of “Glee” were honored for their comedy-series supporting roles.
“All I wanted to be was a clown in the circus when I was a kid growing up,” said Stonestreet, who plays a boisterous gay dad and partner. He thanked his parents for their support and promised to send his trophy home with them.
