    Congrats Homeland. You deserve it!

    Nice to see Homeland cleanup, even if the 2nd season wasn’t half what the first was.

    This season’s finale of Homeland was awesome. I never took House of Lies very seriously though.

    Don Cheadle is incredibly versatile actor. Over weekend watched Brooklyn’s Finest and Don just killed it as confilcted undercover stuck in the game. And today Don killed it as Mari Kaan. And he was as much memorable in Project Swordfish and Reign over Me. Well done Don ! Congrats !

    Don Cheadle is very funny. Look for his “Captain Planet” videos over at Funny Or Die.

    Homeland is awesome! Well-deserved honors for the show and lead actors. Mandy should have won also.
