“Homeland’s” Season 2 episode “Q&A” beat out some stiff competition at the 2013 Emmy Awards for the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series award. Unfortunately the man responsible for penning arguably the best episode of the Showtime series’ second season, Henry Bromell, wasn’t on hand to accept the win.
Bromell passed away on March 18, 2013 after suffering from a torn aorta. The 65-year-old’s wife Sarah Bromell took to the Emmys stage to take home her husband’s second Emmy win (the first being for “Homeland’s” 2011 Outstanding Drama Series win).
“I accept this award on behalf of Henry with deep appreciation to the Academy and thank you so much,” Sarah says.
This was “Homeland’s” first Emmy win of the night. It beat out competition including “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad” and “Downton Abbey.”
