Primetime Emmy Nominations Announced! Downton Abbey scores 16! Mad Men Could Win a Record-Five Peat!

Mad Men and American Horror Story topped the Primetime Emmy Awards nominations announced Thursday morning with 17 each, while a slew of freshmen competitors entered the major show and performer fields!

Mad Men will aim for an unprecedented five-peat in Best Drama Series, which would also give it the most wins in the category  Downton Abbey and miniseries Hatfields & McCoys followed with 16 nods.  In addition, Downton Abbey scored acting nominations for many in its cast including: Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Brendan Boyle, Joanna Froggatt and Maggie Smith!  Breakout hits, such as the critic’s darling of the year, Homeland scored eight, including much deserved nominations for leads Damian Lewis and Claire Danes.

Two-time defending comedy series champ Modern Family, earned 14 nods, will vie for a three-peat against three-time champ 30 Rock in several of the comedy categories.   Kathryn Joosten, who recently passed away after her battle with lung cancer was nominated in the final year of Desperate Housewives in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in A Comedy Series for her role as Mrs. McCluskey.

Winners will be revealed live on The 64th Primetime Emmy Awards from L.A’s Nokia Theatre hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.

“Revenge” has been robbed! Probably will not watch this emmy event, I get tired of the same people and shows being nominated over and over. Great talent is overlooked every year.

I’m sorry… I just realized that… I am so happy for Madeleine Stowe… that she’s back! on screen… IMO, she’s the reason “Revenge” made it. She’s still got it… i’m glad she’s been renewed… don’t hear that very often.

I agree…same old, same old. And so many of these shows are on cable and not available to everyone. “Revenge” was my favorite new show last year and I can’t believe it got no major noms. Michelle Dockery as Lead Actress on “Downton Abbey”?? Why wasn’t Elizabeth McGovern nominated in this category? Also, I didn’t see any major noms for “Once Upon a Time”…another new favorite of mine. Oh well, they can’t please everyone. I’m just upset that I have never seen most of the shows nominated. It’s hard to enjoy an awards show when you don’t know/watch any of… Read more »

Ms. Jessica Lange. American Horror Story… best supporting actress… miniseries or movie. YES! She, IMO, is America’s 1st lady of Theatre. 2 time oscar winner…. She’s won them all…. check out Blue Sky, with Tommy Lee Jones.
check out Crimes of the heart, with Sissy Spacek, and Diane
Keaton.

and, “Rob Roy” with Liam Neeson…. She enthralls… captivates… Simmers on Screen.

‘Downton Abbey 2’: Big-Screen Sequel Announced & Coming For Christmas

So many of us loved the soap opera that was Downton Abbey when it aired on PBS and ITV for six seasons.  Then, a few years later in 2019, the highly-awaited Downton Abbey movie hit movie theatres near you.

Now comes word from Focus Features that a big-screen sequel is in the works and is slated for release this Christmas in December of 2021.

In a social media announcement, the film company shared: “We’re thrilled to announce that Julian Fellowes and the entire Downton cast are back for #DowntonAbbey2, with Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West joining! See the film in theaters this Christmas.”

While, of course, no plot has been teased or given away, Fellowes will write the screenplay, with Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn) set to direct.

“There’s no place like home for the holidays, and we can’t imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, (producer) Gareth Neame and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawleys back home for their fans,” said Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawsk in a statement.

So, excited to see your favorites and some potential new ones in the all-new Downton Abbey Movie later this year? Comment below.
