Brits Take Home the Emmys

Congratulations to the British winners of the 63rd Emmy Awards! Having aired on PBS, the British show Downton Abbey became eligible for the Emmys, taking home a total of four awards. Brian Percival, of North & South fame, received the award for his Outstanding Directing. Julian Fellowes, who was the screenwriter for The Young Victoria, took away the award for screenwriting. The ineffable Maggie Smith won an Emmy for her role as the Dowager Countess of Grantham. As a whole, Downton Abbey was honored with the Emmy for Outstanding Miniseries.

Kate Winslet, everyone’s favorite English actress, was awarded an Emmy for her portrayal of Mildred Pierce on HBO.
