Modern Family, Louis CK among big comedy winners at the 2012 Emmy Awards

Hey, Louis CK! Why you got your face in your hand? Chin up! You’re a two-time Emmy winner now!

Roll the clip:

In other TV awarding TV news, no surprises with the continued love for all things Modern Family, big surprise for Jon Cryer winning in the “Lead Actor” category (even Cryer couldn’t believe it), and Amy Poehler makes it shine two years in a row despite not winning either time. How does she do it? Class.
