'Homeland' grabs Emmys for lead actors in a drama

Those who aren't already fans of Showtime's "Homeland" (returning on September 30) just might be convinced to tune in after the Emmys.

The series picked up the Emmy for drama writing, edging out episodes from critical favorites "Downton Abbey" and "Mad Men," and stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes also picked up the outstanding lead actor and actress in a drama Emmys, respectively.

Danes gave a shout-out to the writers as well as her co-stars - “Mandy Patkinkin - holla!” being a memorable line - while Lewis was a charmer.

"I’m one of those pesky Brits," Lewis began. "I don’t believe in judging art … but I thought I’d show up just in case. Turned out alright."

If you're not already into "Homeland," did the Emmy wins make you want to tune in (or at least DVR it)?
