Following Homeland's sweep at 2012's Primetime Emmys — where the Showtime series picked up six awards, including Outstanding Drama Series — a Golden Globe win for the Claire Danes-starring series seemed all but a lock.
So it was no surprise that Homeland — stacked against Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey: Season 2, and The Newsroom — indeed emerged victorious at the 2013 Golden Globes, picking up Best Drama, as well as Best Actor (Damian Lewis) and Best Actress (Claire Danes).
"All of us at Homeland nearly killed ourselves this year trying to live up to the hype of that first season," creator Alex Gansa said at the podium following the series win. "And this award tells me maybe maybe we just didn't screw it up."
So now we're only left to wonder: Will Season 3, premiering Sept. 29, prove to be another home run for Homeland?
