Stonestreet Takes Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy -- Just Like We Said He Would




    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Eric Stonestreet was bizarrely normal in accepting the first prize of the night -- frankly it was a little disappointing.

    "All I ever wanted was to be a clown," said Stonestreet in taking the night's first prize, a win we at PocornBiz predicted with laser-like accuracy as far back as Aug. 6.

    Not sure what we expected from Stonestreet, but his Cameron Tucker on "Modern Family" is such an over-the-top comedic force, we maybe expected a little more joie.

    In any event, we're happy for him and were impressed by how he made a point of giving a shout-out to co-star Ed O'Neill, who had been snubbed by the nomination process.

    And he of course thank his parents.
