Claire Danes with her Emmy
Claire Danes paid tribute to her 'baby daddy' Hugh Dancy as she won the Best Actress prize at the Emmy Awards last night (23.09.12).
The 33-year-old star - who is expecting her first baby with the handsome actor - took home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in 'Homeland' and she took the opportunity to thank her husband of three years.
When she accepted the coveted prize, Claire - who beat favourite Elisabeth Moss to the prize - said: 'My husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy. I couldn't do anything without you. I love you so much and I am so grateful ... This means nothing without you.'
Claire - who looked stunning in a yellow Lanvin dress - also paid tribute to her 'Homeland' co-star Damian Lewis, who picked up the prize for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, saying: '(He) did the magnificent trick of taking a villain and making them someone so human.'
After accepting his statuette, the British actor tried his best to remain modest.
He said: 'I'm one of those pesky Brits, I apologise. I don't really believe in judging art, but I thought I'd show up just in case.'
'Homeland' also won the coveted Best Drama Award and Best Drama Writing at the prestigious ceremony at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.
