Stranger Things won for Best Ensemble in a Drama series and David Harbour, who plays Jim Hopper, used his time on the mic to deliver an impassioned speech about our current state of affairs. Even though it was everything people wanted it to be, let’s forget about it for quick second. Instead, let’s focus on Winona Ryder’s facial expressions during the speech. Either she’s the most expressive person in the world or the acid finally hit.
It sounds like Homeland fans aren’t the only ones who know Claire Danes‘ famous faces.
But other than her own successful series and husband Hugh Dancy‘s show Hannibal, Danes admits she’s a little unfamiliar with the rest of the nominations — or any other Hollywood hits from the past few years.
“I barely am able to watch my own show, my husband’s show,” she jokes. “We took Cyrus to his first movie for his birthday in December, like a movie in the movie theater. We saw Peanuts and it was maybe my first movie that I saw in the theater since he was born.”
But Danes may soon catch a bit of a break: The cast is now shooting in her hometown and the busy mom can’t wait to be back to her stomping grounds.
“To shoot in my hometown is ironically rather exotic and wonderful, so I’m really looking forward to that,” she explains. “I’m stoked. I get to go home to my own actual bed.”
Danes — who’s nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series for Homeland — is also preparing for her new role in the play Dry Powder, in which she will star alongside John Krasinski and Hank Azaria.
“It’s a comedy, a social satire. It’s very different in tone from Homeland, so it’s a nice deviation. It will be fun,” she says.
Homeland is also up for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series and outstanding actor performance by a stunt ensemble in a comedy or drama series.

Eddie Redmayne Jokes He’s Dreaming of Wooden Toys for His Baby (But Will Likely End Up with iPhones!)
In theory, Eddie Redmayne knows what kind of father he wants to be.
But the dad-to-be — who’s expecting his first child with wife Hannah — admits his hopes of an eco-friendly future for his baby on the way will be hard to fulfill.
“Everyone’s like, ‘You always start like that and you end up with iPhones.’ ”
For now, the couple are concentrating their efforts on making sure they have everything they need to head to the hospital once the time comes. But Redmayne jokes even that seems daunting.
“We started looking at the logistics and all the lists of things you’re meant to get before you go into hospital and that’s a long list of stuff right there,” he says.
And although he is in the full swing of awards season, it’s given Redmayne — who’s nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for The Danish Girl — and Hannah the perfect opportunity to relax.
“Got in yesterday, just finished shooting [Fantastic Beasts] yesterday as well. It’s been six months of filming. So I’m on holiday and the sun is shining in L.A., so that’s wonderful,” he explains.
“The past year has been quite manic, weirdly [Hannah and I] find the airplanes quite calming places. You can’t use your phone, you have to sit and relax and take it easy.”
