Golden Globes: Claire Danes wins for actress in a TV series drama
Claire Danes of “Homeland” won the Golden Globe award for best performance by an actress in a television series — drama. Danes beat Mireille Enos of “The Killing,” Julianna Margulies of “The Good Wife,” Madeleine Stowe of “Revenge” and Callie Thorne of “Necessary Roughness” for the award.
Danes plays Carrie Mathis, a CIA agent, in this freshman thriller from Showtime. Her character is convinced that an American Marine returning after years as a POW in Iraq is a terrorist. Danes previously won a Golden Globe in this category as a teenager for her role in “My So-Called Life” and last year won the best actress in a miniseries or made-for-TV movie category for her starring role in “Temple Grandin.”
The Golden Globes are being held at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday and are being televised on NBC. We'll carry all the breaking TV news and reaction here on Show Tracker.
