Confession: I totally forgot that television was even involved in this ceremony even though Tina and Amy made a joke about it approximately one second into their opening. So much for my listening comprehension.
Maggie Smith, pardon me, DAME Maggie Smith just won for Best Supporting Actress on a Television Show or Mini-Series which, sure. On Downton Abbey, she is the platonic ideal of Dame Maggie Smith. The New York Times said she appeared to prepare for her role by "wearing sandpaper in her knickers" and if that's even close to true then she certainly deserves a Golden Globe.
