The Screen Actors Guild Awards were on last night and Downton Abbey’s very own Maggie Smith won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.

She was up against some tough competition also.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series

CLAIRE DANES / Carrie Mathison – “HOMELAND” (Showtime)

ANNA GUNN / Skyler White – “BREAKING BAD” (AMC)

JESSICA LANGE / Fiona Goode – “AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN” (FX)

MAGGIE SMITH / Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham – “DOWNTON ABBEY” (PBS)

Unfortunately, Downton Abbey did not win in its nominated category of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.  The show was up against Boardwalk Empire (HBO), Breaking Bad (AMC), Game of Thrones (HBO), and Homeland(Showtime).  Breaking Bad ultimately won.  I guess Meth Dealers beat Aristocracy these days.  There is no accounting for a lack of taste in Hollywood.
