Inconceivable!

Facing off against perennial powerhouses Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Breaking Bad, the new kid on the block emerged victorious!!

Showtime's new series Homeland won some acting Emmys for Damian Lewis and the baby-bumpin' Claire Danes and then took home the top prize — Best Dramatic Series!

And lets not forget co-star Mandy Patinkin. Neither he nor his beard won any awards tonight but only because The Princess Bride was mysteriously ineligible!

Congratulations, Homeland!!

Now there's pressure on you guys and gals to come back with a stellar second season but we think you can handle it!

    Congrats to Homeland! Great show. Of course, I was rooting for any show but Mad Men. It was their worst season yet.

    Re: msubabe01 – Not true, but that's why Breaking Bad should have won. It was their turn is they ever decided to not give it to Mad Men. It's just insulting to give this show the award in it's first season. Total joke Damien Lewis won too, Cranston or Michael C. Hall simply deserve it more. If Breaking Bad doesn't win for it's final season, all these voter should be forced to retire.

    Total joke that Damian Lewis won it, you make me laugh. By the way its Damian not Damien, you could at least get his name spelt correctly.

    How exciting for Homeland, they deserve it! I’m glad to see a new series was able to not only win an award but sweep the category. I missed the airing of the Emmys because I’ve got a crazy schedule at DISH, but I have the whole ceremony recorded and waiting thanks to my Hopper DVR with PrimeTime Anytime. PrimeTime Anytime will automatically record all four networks during prime time every day so I always have the network shows and I don’t have to set a reminder to get them. I’ve heard Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ acceptance speech was the high point of the night.

    Damian lewis is a hot ginger and acting legend. Shouldve won for Band of brothers. Its not easy maintaining a US accent throughout. But Clare, dear, that colour is nawt for you. washes you out dreadfully.
