'Downton's' Maggie Smith responds to Jimmy Kimmel

Posted September 23, 2016

Maggie Smith may have just won another Emmy for her role as the witty Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey, but that doesn't mean she's ready to leave Yorkshire just yet. Despite winning 4 Emmys, she's never attended the ceremony. "We're not mailing this award to her. Maggie, if you want this it'll be in the lost and found", he joked. When Maggie Smith hears she's nominated for an Emmy, she has the same reaction the rest of us have when we get one of those 20 per cent off Bed Bath and Beyond (store) coupons in the mail.

On Sunday night's EMMY AWARDS, host Jimmy Kimmel was adamant that if actress Maggie Smith was the recipient of the award for Best Actress in a Drama Series, he would do everything in his power to keep the trophy from getting into her hands. This year for this first time ever, you must be present to win.

Syria: Ceasefire Is Over
By Monday, both the Syrian government and prominent opposition activists were speaking of the truce as if it had already failed. The United States, Russia, the Syrian government and the Syrian opposition have all traded allegations of truce violations.

But at a Bafta event in Los Angeles over the weekend, Michael Fox, who plays friendly valet Andy Parker on the show, said that Smith signing on meant the film would not only proceed - but be the better for it. Well, I don't see her. "It couldn't go on and on, it just didn't make sense", she said.

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.

The pipeline would stretch for over 1,100 miles and carry crude oil from North Dakota to a hub in IL . An appeals court granted on Saturday the request to halt construction within 20 miles of Lake Oahe.

He ended his joke rant by stating, "I have a message for you "lame" Maggie Smith, if you're even bothering to watch".

When she won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series later that night, Kimmel generously offered to put her award in the lost and found.
