The highest-rated freshman series in SHOWTIME history, HOMELAND has been honored with most major awards this year, including the Golden Globe for Best Television Drama, was named one of AFI's Top Ten Television Programs, received a Peabody Award, as well as the Critics' Choice Award for Best Drama Series, remarkably all in its freshman season. Claire Danes receives her second Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category; she was previously nominated for My So-Called Life in 1995, and won in 2010 for Lead Actress in a Mini-series or Movie for Temple Grandin.

Don Cheadle receives his fifth Emmy nomination and first in the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category for HOUSE OF LIES. Michael C.
