Just in time for the holidays, Danes and her actor husband Hugh Dancy welcome their first child, son Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy. The Homeland star tells PEOPLE she's looking forward to "getting to know our new Dancy."
Danes takes home her second Golden Globe for dramatic TV actress as the star of Homeland. "I have to thank our son now, Hugh and my son Cyrus … for joining me throughout the whole process and being so game and fighting this war against terrorism," she jokes in her acceptance speech of being pregnant during filming. Two weeks later, the actress adds a SAG Award to her mantle.
Winning her second outstanding dramatic actress Emmy for her role in Homeland, Danes pays tribute to one of the show's late writers, Henry Bromell, during her acceptance speech. "He was a brilliant person and so kind," she says, "and we think of him every day as we continue to work on the show that he helped define."
