2012 Emmy Awards: ‘Homeland’ Writers Are Named Most Outstanding for Drama

Homeland Season 2 Brody 2012
Showtime

It’s official! Showtime’s ‘Homeland‘ has just one its first award of the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards show, and this one comes courtesy of the work of its writers Alex Gansa, Howard Gordon and Gideon Raff.

The trio had some stiff competition, going up against ‘Mad Men’ three times (because three episodes were nominated), and ‘Downton Abbey.’ But it was ‘Homeland’s’ pilot episode the writer trio has to thank for their success.

‘Homeland’ season 2 hits September 30 and if this Emmy Award win doesn’t get you pumped for it, then how about its win at the 2012 Critic’s Choice TV Awards? Or how about just for the fact that Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham will be joining the cast for season 2, on top of leads Claire Danes (also up for a 2012 Emmy Award) and Damian Lewis? Mind you, Lewis beat out Bryan Cranston, Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall, Steve Buscemi and Hugh Bonneville for the 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
