In a surprise appearance, Clinton introduced a clip from the film “Lincoln” at the awards show.


When Bush asked what kind of “special room” Clinton was talking about, Danes replied with a laugh, “Actually he was talking to Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson [in there] and I thought, ‘Wow.’ ”

The actress, who won a Golden Globe for her “Homeland” role, says Clinton explained to her that he’s a fan of the show.

Danes appeared to be in awe of the former commander in chief, telling Bush, “There’s something a little superhuman about him.”

Both Clinton and Obama — who has said in interviews that “Homeland” is among his favorite shows — have reportedly requested DVDs of previous seasons of the program.
