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.
