The annual entertainments awards season hoopla kicks off with US TV comedy queens Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting a night of big dresses, big tears and hopefully (the Americans haven’t seen the poorly received Christmas episode yet) big awards for the Downton Abbey gang — can they topple last year’s Homeland triumph?
Downton’s Maggie Smith is also up for an award in the film Quartet. Brit actors are well placed in the TV nominations: fingers crossed they don’t get shoved aside by Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire.
