Game of Thrones has another Emmy to go with that Iron Throne.
At the 68th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, the HBO hit won Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss taking home the trophy for writing “Battle of the Bastards.”
Dame Maggie Smith has done it again! The veteran actress won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama for playing the always-quotable Violet Crawley on the final season of PBS’ Downton Abbey.
Smith was not in attendance at the 68th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday. The evening’s host Jimmy Kimmel crashed the stage to commandeer Smith’s trophy. “No, no, no, no, no,” Kimmel said. “We’re not mailing this to her. Maggie, if you want this, it’ll be in the lost and found.”
Downton Abbey may have ended in March, but Michelle Dockery says there is a chance you haven’t seen the last of the beloved British series.
The past year has a time of transition for Michelle Dockery.
For a few minutes this morning, I felt such delight from this year’s Emmy nominations that I felt the voters responsible for them had executed their task perfectly. Master of None. The Americans. Mr. Robot. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. black-ish. Silicon Valley. Game of Thrones.
Downton Abbey’s Lady Edith is no stranger to having her emotions put through the wringer, but Laura Carmichael, the actress who played the character across six seasons prior to last Sunday’s series finale, recalls the doleful sentiments she experienced during the PBS drama’s final shoot in a preview for a new episode of the Masterpiece Studio podcast.
Now that Downton Abbey has come to an end, fans are left without their beloved Crawleys, servants, and stories of deceit and loyalty. Have no fear, though: Here are 12 books with similar themes, characters, and twists to ease your withdrawal.
After a memorable run as the most-watched PBS show of all time, Downton Abbey finally came to an end on Sunday night. As tribute, Jimmy Kimmel had John Legend cover the show’s beautiful, haunting theme song on Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! But Legend added lyrics to his version.
No matter how happy or satisfying the finale of Downton Abbey was — very on both accounts — it’s only natural when a beloved story ends to wonder if there’s more on the way.
