The Emmys went for a family-friendly theme Sunday. The big-hearted romp “Modern Family” claimed the best comedy trophy for the second year in a row, while AMC’s “Mad Men” won its fourth consecutive best drama series award.

“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 comedy award, it couldn’t pull honors for stars Jon Hamm or Elisabeth Moss. It also lost in the supporting drama actor and actress, and writing categories.

Kyle Chandler was the surprise winner in the best drama actor category for the last season of Texas football drama “Friday Night Lights,” blocking odds-on favorites among his fellow nominees, including Hamm.

“I knew for a fact I would not be standing here. I did not write anything and now I’m starting to worry,” said Chandler, who also beat out Steve Buscemi of “Boardwalk Empire.”

It was a fitting victory for Chandler and “Friday Night Lights,” which was critically acclaimed but struggled for an audience, and whose high school football team’s motto was, “clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.”

Julianna Margulies won top drama acting honors for “The Good Wife.” Margulies, who navigates politics, law and family in the show, added to her Emmy stash. As part of the “ER” medical drama cast, she won a supporting actress Emmy in 1995.
