When Claire Danes came backstage at the Golden Globes Sunday night, she told us journalists she missed us.
After all, it was this same time last year that Danes nabbed a GG for her leading role in the HBO made-for-TV movie “Temple Grandin.” It was also this time last year that she told us about a new Showtime drama she was working on called “Homeland.”
Of course none of us could’ve predicted that the show would become the huge hit that it is or that Danes would be so convincing and amazing in it. But she is.
Speaking of predictions, who would’ve thought that Showtime would’ve dominated the Golden Globes the way it did this year? It won for best actress in a drama with Danes, best TV drama for “Homeland” and best comedy actor for Matt LeBlanc. He stars in the awesome comedy “Episodes,” which will return around June, according to LeBlanc.
HBO usually dominates but the top cable network only won three: one for Kate Winslet in “Mildred Pierce,” another for Laura Dern from “Enlightened” and Peter Dinklage’s win for his work on “Game of Thrones.” Other than that, it was all about Showtime. Well, I guess that’s three for three but that usually never happens.
The win for “Modern Family” also marked the end of “Glee” being a critical darling. Feels like the reign the show had is over. Hmmm.
But Ryan Murphy probably still felt triumphant after Jessica Lange won for her role on his “American Horror Story.” Backstage, Lange described Murphy as an imaginative genius.
