UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Wisconsin had another big night at the Emmys.

A-B-C's "Modern Family," created by former Madison T-V anchor Steve Levitan, won the Best Comedy Series award for the fourth straight year. Levitan, a U-W Madison graduate, is the show's executive producer.

"Behind the Candelabra," an H-B-O movie on the life of West Milwaukee native Liberace, won 11 Emmys -- three last night and eight technical honors presented earlier this month. Michael Douglas, who played the late lavish piano musician, was named the Best Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series.

Also, Waukesha native Richard Dahm was honored during last night's prime-time Emmy broadcast. He's part of the writing group for "The Colbert Report," which received the award for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Show.

A documentary about sexual abuses by priests at a school for the deaf in suburban Milwaukee won three Emmys in the Creative Arts Emmy ceremony a week ago last night. They include the exceptional merit award for documentary film-making, plus awards for writing and picture editing.
