Best: 'Homeland''s ascension
As disappointed as fans of "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad" and even "Downton Abbey" may have been that their favorite series didn't take home the evening's top honor, there were just as many "Homeland" fans jumping for joy at the recognition the Showtime series received Sunday night. In what must have been a shock to HBO and AMC, "Homeland" dominated the dramatic honors taking home best drama series, best actor (Damien Lewis), best actress (Claire Danes) and best writing for a dramatic series. Let's hope the creators can keep it up. We'll find out when season two premieres next Sunday night.
