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.
