Congratulations are in order for the cast of ‘Downton Abbey’! The group took home the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2016 SAG Awards and it couldn’t have been more deserved. Yay!
Downton Abbey has done it again! The show’s incredible cast won Best Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and they were up against some stiff competition! Congratulations to the amazing actors and actresses who have brought this show to life.
Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Raquel Cassidy, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Lily James, Rob James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Lesley Nichol, Julian Ovenden, Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton were the members of the cast that accepted this honor, and we couldn’t be happier for them!
Downton Abbey is no stranger to this category at the SAGs: They’ve been nominated since 2013, and won the award that year and in 2015, losing out to Breaking Bad during the show in 2014. Maggie was nominated this year for her role in the show, but lost to Viola Davis. .
The series was up against Game of Thrones, Homeland, House of Cards, and Mad Men this year, so it certainly was no easy feat to take the award home for a third time. More than six seasons in, it’s safe to say this show is killing it more than ever!
