Actress Claire Danes has won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in "Homeland" on Jan. 27 at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. The Screen Actors Guild Awards are presented by SAG-AFTRA and honor the best performances in film and television. Tonight’s show broadcast around the world from the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium.

Don't forget that laughing, crying and cheering are always approved behavior and even encouraged.
