Three-time nominee Damian Lewis received his first ever Golden Globe win for his critically-acclaimed role as "Nicholas Brody" on Homeland. Lead actress Claire Danes garnered her fourth Golden Globe win for her compelling portrayal of "Carrie Mathison." Tonight's wins mark the first time that a Showtime nominated actress and series have won in consecutive years.
