Premium cable networks HBO and Showtime fought for supremacy in the Golden Globes TV awards Sunday with three honors each for the CIA thriller "Homeland" and "Game Change,'' the movie about Sarah Palin's ascent from obscurity to 2008 vice presidential candidate.
Showtime's "Homeland'' scored a clean sweep of the biggest TV awards, starting with honors for best TV drama for the second year in a row. Co-stars Claire Danes, who plays CIA agent Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis, who stars as Sgt. Nicholas Brody, both won top acting awards. Lewis emotionally dedicated his award to his late mother, while Danes paid to tribute to her baby son.
Alex Dansa, executive producer of "Homeland,'' recalled an arduous night of filming where star Claire Danes, eight months pregnant, had to do multiple takes being chased in a drainage pipe.
"We fairly killed ourselves trying to live up to the hype of that first season and this award tells that maybe, maybe, we didn't screw it up,'' he said.
Lewis said the last 18 months working on "Homeland'' have been "an exciting, wonderful journey.'' He said that picking up "a piece of hardware like this is a great perk,'' holding up his Globe.
Danes paid tribute to her fellow actresses in the category.
"I'm very proud to be working in this medium in this moment in this company,'' she said.
Showtime took a 4-3 edge over HBO when Don Cheadle won a comedy acting award for his role as Marty Kaan, leader of a team of slippery management consultants in "House of Lies.''
"Game Change'' was named best TV movie or miniseries. Julianne Moore won as best actress in a miniseries or movie for her portrayal of Palin while Ed Harris – although he portrayed the man on the top of the ticket, presidential candidate John McCain – was the supporting actor winner.
