LOS ANGELES (CBS4) — The Emmys keep buying what “Mad Men” is selling. The 1960s Madison Avenue saga won its fourth consecutive best drama series award Sunday, while big-hearted romp “Modern Family” claimed its second best comedy trophy.
“Modern Family” producer Steve Levitan, whose picture of the American family today includes gay couples and interracial families, told of being approached during shooting by a real-life gay couple who wanted to say thanks.
“They said, `You’re not just making people laugh, you’re making them more tolerant,”‘ said Levitan, whose show received a total of five awards.
While “Mad Men” gained the top drama award, it couldn’t pull honors for stars Jon Hamm or Elisabeth Moss.
