Claire Danes is the star of the popular television series "Homeland" and her performances on the show have earned her the 2012 and 2013 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama series for her performance in the show.
When the average person thinks of an actress winning two Emmy awards the first thought would be that it is a very impressive feat which is of some great significance. However, as the attractive Claire Danes expressed in an interview on WTF with Marc Maron this is not the way she feels and in fact looks at it completely differently.
She admits to being very grateful about receiving the awards as an acknowledgement of her acting but for her they do not matter and then they do. The awards are a recognition from some of those in the industry that they like your work but at the same time it does not guarantee more work nor can one stop depend on those awards to make their acting better.
Interestingly, while she is 'conflicted' about the Emmy Awards her sensational acting on "Homeland" has earned her a nomination in 2014 and puts her in contention for a third consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
She is currently considered one of the queens of the television dramas and her success has some fans and entertainment observers speculating about whether she might soon consider taking on a leading lady role on the big screen. Such a thought might seem like blasphemy to some but when fans consider the fact that she is without question one of the most popular actresses on television and her dramatic range is exceptional she seems like the ideal actress to have as a leading lady in a movie.
Will the 2014-15 season be Claire Danes' last on the small screen? No one knows but she is someone who is very likely on the radar screens of many filmmakers as a potential leading lady for the future because of her small screen success.
