Who is more dangerous? A rescued POW Marine who may be plotting a terrorist attack on U.S. soil as he makes an uneasy return to his home and family? Or an emotionally frayed CIA agent whose suspicions of the returning war hero prompt her to cross a line, thus endangering herself, friends and colleagues? That dilemma is a key driving force behind "Homeland," a new Showtime drama that feeds off of the distrust and paranoia of the 9/11 attacks and its aftermath, even a decade later.

The third-season finale of "Homeland," Showtime's popular and controversial series about a troubled CIA agent played by Claire Danes, was one of the most debated episodes of last year, with the death of POW turned possible terrorist Nicholas Brody. When the series returns for its fourth season, it will have "a big reset," said Showtime's President of Entertainment David Nevins. "This is a show fundamentally about a field operative," said Nevins, noting that the show has not often shown Danes' character, Carrie Mathison, working as a spy. "The plan now of the new season is to show her on the ground in the capital of a foreign country, doing her job ... it's going to be different.

Claire Danes may be focusing more on the home front than on "Homeland" right about now - she's just welcomed a baby boy with husband Hugh Dancy. Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy arrived Monday, the actress' rep told People, giving up no other details about the newborn. Nice timing, Cyrus: The wee one arrived the day after "Homeland's" second-season finale . No headline-stealing in this family! Not to mention he's freed up Mom to wear some smashing fashions as she cruises through awards season once again.

Claire Danes covers the August issue of Vogue magazine and she's candidly sharing exactly what she thinks about being a Hollywood actress. "I always have the fear that I won't be able to do it, because I am convinced that it left me and I don't know how I managed it before," the "Homeland" star tells the fashion tome. "You just hold out for those rare moments when you feel a real fusion with this imagined person. It's really like surfing. You get that wave and think, All right, I can be in freezing-cold water at 5:00 a.m. in the hopes that I will get one. And maybe you get three of those a year.

Claire Danes made sure to thank her baby daddy Sunday night while accepting her Emmy for lead actress in a series. But when it comes to the actual child growing inside her, the “Homeland” actress isn't so sure her offspring will find her win all that exciting. “I think it's going to be some time before my child cares at all about this, if ever,” the 33-year-old actress, who plays a hyper-watchful CIA agent in the Showtime drama,  told reporters backstage. Motioning to her baby bump, she added: “This person may not care, but I do.” Maybe POTUS does too?

The Emmys red carpet race doesn't officially kick off until Sunday afternoon, but the fashion show really started in L.A. over weekend, with a swirl of pre-awards-show parties and photo ops. The best looks of the weekend captured the fun, flirty 1950s vibe running through fashion right now. That meant dresses with short or tea-length full skirts and festive prints. (At fashion week, one of the most popular looks among editors and bloggers in the front row was a very Audrey Hepburn-looking white, button-down shirt tucked into a full, knee-length or below skirt.)

"Project Runway's" Heidi Klum is on the February cover of Marie Claire and inside she talks about her divorce from Seal ("It's not what I wanted...but it's not a real problem"), marrying again ("I don't think so") and younger lovers (“I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes. Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I'm turning 40 next year; I don't think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.” The magazine is out Jan. 15, and "Project Runway" returns for an 11th season on Jan. 24. [Marie Claire]

He's a former champion skier and fifth-generation furrier, but even designer Gilles Mendel needs a break from the cold. Mendel made a brief trip from his home in New York to Los Angeles last week to attend a lunch held in his honor at the Sunset Tower Hotel. “I think we're in for a long winter,” said Mendel's partner and muse Kylie Case. “Good for fur, bad for New Yorkers.” The couple and lunch guests relished the temperate L.A. climate - many of them were clad in pretty pastel J. Mendel dresses.

When it comes to the star-crossed love of Romeo and Juliet, whether you use the language of Shakespeare or the discourse of Twitter, the passion must be scorching, the angst and the irony feuding, the desire unquenchable, the deaths unending. Anything less and you're left with an ordinary affair of the teenage heart. The newest "Romeo & Juliet" rendering, with Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld as the desperately devoted, is something else entirely. PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments So reverential is this play of the play, the Bard would likely blush.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Early in the new season of "Homeland," which premieres Sunday on Showtime, Saul Berenson sits with a tumbler of whiskey in his hand and a defeated look on his face. "I'm not temperamentally suited to the job," says the veteran intelligence officer played by Mandy Patinkin, who finds himself ill at ease in his new role as acting director of the CIA. Alex Gansa, "Homeland's" creator, show runner and - in the wake of a Season 2 backlash that saw critics reject the Emmy-winning terrorism drama as emphatically as they'd once embraced it - most public defender, knows the feeling all too well.

The walking wound that is Claire Danes' bipolar superspy Carrie Mathison returns to duty in your living room Sunday, on Showtime, as the third season of "Homeland" begins. There is no sign, for the moment (and the next moment, at least), of her fugitive love Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), the Marine-turned-terrorist-congressman-turned-triple-agent-cum-boyfriend, last seen as Carrie saw him to the Canadian border, after the bombing of CIA headquarters - the endgame of a complicated plot for which Brody had been framed.

“Modern Family”? Check. “Breaking Bad”? Double check. Jeff Daniels? Whaaaaaa???? The 2013 Emmy Awards made for a changeable evening with voters swinging wildly between rubber-stamping old favorites and offering up jaw-dropping surprises. It was, to quote noted Emmy handicapper Jimi Hendrix, a "frustrating mess" for anyone making predictions. That said, let's run down the list of winners and see whether we can make some sense from the higgledy-piggledy happenings of the evening.
