Actress Claire Danes won her second award for outstanding leading dramatic actress in a series at the Emmys ceremony on Sunday for her performance as bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison in “Homeland,” the U.S. version of an Israeli show called “Hatufim” (Prisoners of War).

“Homeland” has been filming some of its scenes in Israel, but recently announced that shooting would move to Morocco due to security concerns with regard to the developing chemical weapons situation in Syria, which borders Israel.

Other notable Emmy award winners include Julia Louis-Dreyfus as outstanding leading comedic actress in a series for “Veep,” and Michael Douglas as outstanding leading actor in in a movie for “Liberace.”
