Openly gay Jane Lynch, Eric Stonestreet, who plays gay, and the gay-inclusive comedy Modern Family won Emmys Sunday night.

Recently married Jane Lynch thanked her wife in accepting an Emmy for her portrayal of sharp tongued coach Sue Sylvester on the Fox musical-comedy hit Glee.

“Thank you so much, this is outlandish,” she said. “My god, my heart is pounding, I have nine seconds … And I thank my daughter Hayden and wife Laura.”

Openly gay Glee creator Ryan Murphy was honored for his writing on the show: “I'd like to dedicate this to all my teachers who taught me to sing and fingerpaint.”

Stonestreet, who plays gay dad Cameron on ABC's Modern Family, said he would take his Emmy for best supporting actor in a comedy to his parent's house in Kansas City.

Controversy surrounding the lack of a gay kiss on the show didn't stop the Sunday night comedy from winning best comedy. Modern Family edged out Glee, the clear favorite of critics, to win the award.

Gay-dad-to-be Neil Patrick Harris, who lost his bid at a third Emmy, joked that he was happy to see a gay man had followed him in hosting the show: “I'd like to thank the academy for allowing a gay man to host the show two years in a row. Congratulations Jimmy [Fallon], you're doing a great job!”
