Homeland won two of its three awards: best drama series and TV drama actress for Claire Danes. The actress is now a perfect 3-for-3 at the Globes. Her co-star Damian Lewis lost drama actor to Kelsey Grammer (Boss). It was a big ceremony for Showtime, as Episodes' Matt LeBlanc scored his first Globe for TV comedy actor after four nominations.

On a night dominated by cable, Modern Family prevented a network shutout, winning comedy series on its third try. Its nominated supporting actors, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara, lost to Game of Thrones's Peter Dinklage and American Horror Story's Jessica Lange, respectively. This is Lange's fifth Globe, tying her for third-most wins of all time with Rosalind Russell.

Enlightened's Laura Dern pulled an upset in in TV comedy actress, triumphing over New Girl's Zooey Deschanel.
