Claire Danes wins Emmy for best actress in drama

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Claire Danes of Showtime’s “Homeland” has won her second straight award for best actress in a drama for her role as CIA agent Carrie Mathison.

The Emmy Sunday represented the third time Danes has taken home a trophy in four years. She won a best actor award for a TV movie in 2010 for her role in HBO’s “Temple Grandin.”

Life became complicated for Danes’ “Homeland” character, as she became romantically involved with the former POW who is suspected of turning against his country.

Danes was nominated for a best actress Emmy in 1995 for “My So-Called Life.”
