"Downton Abbey," the British drama series that airs on PBS, won the SAG Award for ensemble in a drama series at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

"Downton" is an international sensation, being the most-watched series on PBS in the U.S. and ITV in the U.K. It also received nominations for Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary Crawley, and Maggie Smith, who plays the Dowager Countess of Grantham, both in the category of female actor in a drama series.
