TV accolades still seem to be Homeland's to lose.
The Showtime drama, which unseated Emmy darling Mad Men with a best drama win this fall, continued its streak of award show success at Sunday's Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Homeland took an early win for best drama, just moments after star Damian Lewis nabbed a win for best actor.

It was Homeland's second best-drama nod at the Globes, but Lewis' first in his category. His co-star, Claire Danes, locked down a repeat win after her first nod for the series last year.
By the end of the drama categories, Homeland won three of its four categories. Co-star Mandy Patinkin, earning his first nom for his work on the show, missed out on the supporting actor category to Game Change star Ed Harris.

The HBO telepic was another big winner of the night, pulling three big wins in the TV movie or miniseries categories. Wins for the film (best TV movie), Julianne Moore (best actress in a TV movie) and Harris followed a similar streak at the Emmys. The upcoming nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards will be the feature's final awards season showing.
Elsewhere, an absentee Maggie Smith won for her supporting work on Downton Abbey. And in what was likely the least-expected TV win of the night, House of Lies star Don Cheadle took home a win for his lead comedic work on Showtime's House of Lies.
As for comedy's leading lady, Girls actress Lena Dunham beat co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to a win. The young creator-writer-director-producer-star thanks her fellow nominees in what amounts to the series' first big win since premiering last summer.
And Dunham didn't have to wait long for a second win. Her HBO comedy, besting Modern Family, 30 Rock and others, took home a win for best comedy.
Girls ended the night as TV's winningest laugher and the biggest freshman performer.
