"Homeland," a television drama based on an Israeli program, won for best drama at the Golden Globes Awards.

The Showtime program, based on "Hatufim," or "Prisoners of War," also received awards for best actor, Damian Lewis, and best actress, Claire Danes, at Sunday's awards ceremony.

Parts of the show's second season, as well as the first, were filmed in Israel.

The popular comedy series "Girls," created by Lena Dunham, received the Golden Globe for best comedy. Dunham, who also stars in the show and is one of its writers, won as well for best actress in a comedy series.

“Argo,” a thriller based on the real-life plan to free American hostages in Iran by creating a fake movie production as a cover, won for best film drama and best director for Ben Affleck, beating out the favored "Lincoln," directed by Steven Spielberg.

The Golden Globes are awarded annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
