On Sunday's Primetime Emmy broadcast, Dame Maggie was honored with the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award for her role as the Dowager Countess Violet on the popular BBC period series, marking her fourth win and ninth nomination. Despite winning 4 Emmys, she's never attended the ceremony. Kimmel declared a new rule he dubbed the "Maggie Smith" rule, where if an actor won and was not there to accept the award, it would then be given to the next name on the list.

In many ways, this latest update signals the certainty of a Downton Abbey movie. A year ago she was on The Graham Norton Show and told the talk show host that she wouldn't appear in the movie if there was one.

It was the third time she had received the award for playing the countess, having won her first Emmy for her leading role in My House in Umbria in 2003.

Britney Spears 'cut loose' on Meghan Trainor's song
The post Britney Spears just got her life to Meghan Trainor's " Me Too " and OMG it's fantastic appeared first on HelloGiggles. Willie's campaign hopes to raise $50,000 so he can "create five Britney level songs and videos with the BEST in the industry".


Well, it's a fearless man that takes on the woman behind Downton Abbey's Dowager Countess and her reply is both as polite and withering as one would expect. "You must be present to win", he said. "I feel the Emmys has been overly generous to me", she posted via the Masterpiece PBS Twitter account.

'The film without her would still be good with all the other actors, but it puts a stamp of quality with her in it'. Most of the cast members, including Maggie Smith might be part of the feature film, which will hold its focus on the Crawleys. Well, I don't see her. She goes to the Soul Train Awards every year.

The show's creator said that Lady Mary's (Michelle Dockery) son, George, would go to World War II a few years later and an existential problem would confront the family.
