'Homeland' EP Alex Gansa: No endgame in sight

A day after "Homeland's" 90-minute season finale aired on Showtime, Zap2it talked to executive producer Alex Gansa about a lot of interesting stuff -- including the explosive (in some ways) season one climax, where the story is headed in season two (yes, they already know) and how he and fellow EP Howard Gordon (both "24" alums) managed to keep a show about politically-charged issues like terrorism and shadowy government operations without getting partisan. We liked the entire conversation so much, we've included it uncut below. We wish we could have talked longer, but Gansa was headed out the door to buy a tuxedo to wear to Jan 15's Golden Globes -- "Homeland" is nominated for three awards, including best drama series and best actor (Damian Lewis) and best actress (Claire Danes) in a drama series. Read on to find out why Carrie isn't totally out of the game, why her relationship with Brody will remain...

SAG Awards snubs: 'Homeland,' 'Parks and Rec,' Ryan Gosling left out

Our reaction to reading the list of nominees for the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards Wednesday morning (Dec. 14) went something like this:"Huh.""OK ...""Really?""Wait -- what? Where are 'Homeland' and 'Parks and Rec' and Margo Martindale and Ryan Gosling and, seriously, what the heck?"(OK, it was actually something a little stronger than "heck," but the last two letters are the same.)The two snubs on the TV side of the ledger that are hardest to process are those for "Parks and Recreation" and "Homeland." We'll grant that the TV categories are a little harder to crack, since SAG doesn't bother with categories for supporting actors, but it's hard to believe there was no room for Claire Danes, Amy Poehler, Damian Lewis or Nick Offerman their respective categories. It's even tought to believe neither ensemble got a nod, considering that "Parks and Rec" was arguably the most consistently funny comedy on television for all of 2011 and...
