Golden Globe Awards 2012 Proves Abbey Occasion For Julian Fellowes

16 January 2012

Last night Downton Abbey achieved the accolade of Best Mini-Series or TV Movie at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Captivating critics and audiences alike, Downton Abbey has proved a phenomenal success on both its television broadcasts and subsequent home entertainment releases.

Written and created by Academy Award winner Julian Fellowes, who attended last night’s ceremony to pick up the award, Downton Abbey has seen its popularity soar since it first aired in 2010, with this latest award demonstrating the broad appeal and quality of the drama.

Boasting an all-star cast including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Jessica Brown Findlay, Laura Carmichael, Brendan Coyle, Joanne Froggatt, Jim Carter, Penelope Wilton and Siobhan Finneran, Downton Abbey is a modern masterpiece that has brought British drama into the spotlight with its unique blend of scandal, humour and series of exciting plot twists.

Downton Abbey Series 2, the Series 1 & 2 box set and Christmas at Downton Abbey are all available on Blu-ray™ and DVD now courtesy of Universal Playback, allowing audiences to fall in love with the Edwardian country house and its residents again and again.
