Downton Abbey: Broadcasting Press Guild TV Awards nominations

The Stage has reported that Downton Abbey has been nominated in four categories in the 2011 Broadcasting Press Guild TV Awards, to be held at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London, on March 25th.

Downton Abbey has been nominated for Best Drama Series, in the writers category and in the acting categories. Maggie Smith has been nominated for Best Actress, while Hugh Bonneville has been nominated for Best Actor for Downton Abbey.

There is a great review of the DVD on the Pop Matters website.

The middle-class interloper, Matthew Crawley, is played by Dan Stevens, an actor whose face seems to alter from ordinary at first glance, to arresting on camera, a trait used to startling, frame-filling effect in the BBC’s gorgeous adaptation of The Line of Beauty. Here, he’s changeable and expressive; Michelle Dockery (The Turn of the Screw, again opposite Dan Stevens) as Lady Mary and Stevens both deliver utterly believable performances as two flawed characters beginning to grow in understanding, whose prickly encounters crackle with potential throughout the series.
