After three Golden Globe nominations (with two wins for Best Drama and Best Actress, Claire Danes), it's clear that Showtime's inspired freshman series Homeland is an awards show frontrunner. And while series leads Damian Lewis and Danes are locks, as is a series nomination, I am also expecting to hear Morena Baccarin's name announced on July 19 in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama category.

To play Jessica Brody, the wife of assumed P.O.W. and sleeper terrorist Nick Brody, the 33-year-old actress tapped into a reservoir of emotions genre fans have known about for years thanks to roles on cult hits Firefly and V. But with Homeland, Baccarin even surprised herself with the pain and power she was able to bring to the table. A duality which will serve her well in the currently filming second seasons since Baccarin tells me, the best is yet to come!
