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