Golden Globes Homeland Girls Game Change Claire Danes Lena Dunham TV entertainment news 42095138

Golden Globe voters chose to honor many recent Emmy champs, feting only two fresh faces at the 70th annual edition of these kudos Sunday. (See complete list of winners here and read report on film awards here.)

Showtime had a particularly strong showing as "Homeland," Damian Lewis, and Claire Danes won Globes to go with their Emmys. The drama series and Danes also won at last year's Globes for the inaugural season while this was the first win for Lewis. 

Fun fact: Danes has won all four of her career Golden Globe bids (she won this same category in 1995 for "My So-Called Life" and claimed Movie/Mini Actress in 2011 for "Temple Grandin.")

Showtime also picked up a surprise win for Don Cheadle ("House of Lies") as Best TV Comedy Actor. He beat out previous Globe winners Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock"), Matt LeBlanc ("Episodes"), and Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") plus first-time nominee Louis C.K. ("Louie").

The top laffer was "Girls" which defeated, among others reigning Globe champ (and three-time Emmy winner) "Modern Family.") "Girls" multi-hyphenate Lena Dunham who writes, directs and produces the HBO series, also prevailed as Best TV Comedy Actress, beating out Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") and ceremony hosts Tina Fey ("30 Rock") and Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation") as well as Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl"). These were the first two Globe wins for Dunham. 

All of the movie/miniseries Globe winners were reruns from last fall's Emmys: HBO's "Game Change," its star Julianne Moore, and Kevin Costner ("Hatfields and McCoys").

The catch-all supporting races were won by: Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), the two-time reigning Emmy champ for her role as the Dowager Countess, and Emmy nominee Ed Harris who played Senator John McCain in "Game Change."
