"My husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy, this doesn't mean anything without you," Danes said during her acceptance speech. The 33-year-old star is expecting a baby with husband actor Hugh Dancy, 37, to whom she married in 2009.
Danes' co-star Damian Lewis also won an Emmy tonight for Best Lead Actor in a drama for "Homeland."
"I'm one of those pesky Brits, I apologize," said Lewis. "I don't really believe in judging art, but I thought I'd show up just in case."
"Homeland" also took the best writing award Emmy tonight.
The TV drama will kick off its second season on September 30.
