Yep the guy who might just be one of the funniest men on television right now thanks to his hysterical character Cameron Tucker took home the coveted and much deserved award last night.

Eric Stonestreet is Modern Family actor and he is cracking up America every Wednesday night. It is his excellent portrayal of the the cuddly, lovable and sometimes a little crazy Cameron who along with partner Mitchell, played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, is a new dad to adopted daughter Lily that earned him an Emmy Award last night. Stonestreet’s plays Cameron perfect and fans all over the world are agreeing with me. Cameron and Mitchell are seriously one of the best couples on television and it is all due to Eric and Jesse, they play off each other beautifully. Eric, who is in fact straight in real life, is so freaking convincing as the gay Cameron that it just proves how talented Stonestreet is which is why his win at the Emmy’s was so aweseom, seriously I screamed when he won.
The 38 year old Stonestreet was born and raised in Kansas City. The Midwest boy at heart is still very close with his parents, in fact he said he is going to give them his Emmy, aw so sweet. Eric attended Kansas State University for college and was even a frat boy during his college years. After school he headed to Chicago where he focused on his improv as well as spent some time doing theater work. In the late 90′s he took the plunge and moved to La La Land to pursue his acting full time.
Before landing his breakout role as Cameron, Eric had a role on CSI as well as guest starred on a slew of television shows like Party of Five, NCIS, Dharma & Greg and Malcom in the Middle just to name a few. Stonestreet has also appeared on the big screen in films like Almost Famous, The Island, The Might Hurt and Ninja Cheerleaders. I actually used to watch him on CSI and he was awesome on that too. You can tell he is unbelievably talented by the different roles he takes on.
