I managed pretty well…until today.
Hadn’t thought about it much. Hadn’t talked about it at all, unless a friend brought it up, and I figured then I had permission. But now?
The gloves are off.
The Emmy nominations were announced. And even though Downton Abbey has been moved into the Drama category — and has to compete with some pretty heavy hitters —
The Brits got ‘er dun.
Outstanding Drama. Outstanding Actress in a Drama, Michelle Dockery. Outstanding Actor in a Drama, Hugh Bonneville. Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama, Brendan Coyle. Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, Maggie Smith AND Joanne Froggatt.
Now we just have to wait and see how they do in the head-to-head competition. Actually, I’m not sure I can wait. I may need to watch the first two seasons.
