Claire Danes: Being Nominated for an Emmy Is 'Like a Nightmare Come to Life'

Originally posted 09/20/2013 07:00PM

Going into Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards has Claire Danes feeling a flurry of emotions.

The Homeland star, 34, who is once again nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series, calls her nod "a nightmare come to life" – but not because she isn't grateful for the acknowledgment of her hard work.

"If you lose, you have to cope with that sting, and if you win, you have to get up and say something eloquent and charming, and remember to thank your husband or your wife," Danes tells PEOPLE. "It's always the vital person you forget to thank. It's terrifying. And then you see the clock ticking. It's awful, that particular part of it."

Claire Danes Stars in a 'Nonsensical and Absurd' Commercial

It's rare you get a chance to see Claire Danes let loose.

The Emmy-winning (and currently nominated) Homeland star, 34, plays an intensive role as bipolar CIA officer Carrie Mathison on Showtime's hit series – so when she filmed her kooky Audi Smart Performer commercial, she enjoyed venturing away from a serious set.

"It's nice to just goof off and improvise and be a little silly," Danes told PEOPLE on Wednesday. "I'm getting ready for a more substantial reprieve from Homeland, which I love and continue to be inspired by – but it would be nice not to be saving the world for a second."

TV Critic on Emmy Nods: Good for Kerry Washington! But What About Keri Russell?

PEOPLE TV Critic on Emmy Nominations: Good Job, Kerry Washington!

Originally posted 07/18/2013 12:30PM

The best news out of Thursday's Emmy Awards nominations is that newlywed Kerry Washington is up for best actress for Scandal.

I was worried that the ABC melodrama – about a beautiful political fixer with conflicted romantic feelings for a handsome, emotionally disturbed president – wouldn't be considered serious enough to merit attention.

Actually, now that I've written that out, I can see why the show might not be considered serious. It's ridiculous. And, in fact, it was shut out of the other top categories. (Although Dan Bucatinsky got a guest-actor nod.)

Actresses don't usually like to talk about weight gain, but Claire Danes was more than happy to Sunday evening. Of course, the topic of discussion was her 6-week-old son Cyrus Michael Christopher.

"He's six weeks and getting fat. It's very exciting. All that time on the boob is starting to result in growth," the Homeland star, 33, told Giuliana Rancic on E!'s Live from the Red Carpet at the SAG Awards.

"He's getting rolls ... thank goodness they've arrived. He's starting to smile a little bit and he kind of knows I exist," she added. "That's reassuring – that feedback is amazing."
