Brits miss out on top Emmy Awards
Stars of the small screen have missed out on securing a top British win at the Emmy Awards this year.
Favourites including Downton Abbey actors Hugh Bonneville, Dame Maggie Smith and Michelle Dockery and Homeland lead Damian Lewis lost out on the big gongs of the night.
Instead it was the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony which gained Britain recognition, with the worldwide broadcast scooping the title of outstanding art direction for variety programming.
It was a disappointing night for Downton Abbey which missed out on a series of awards despite being nominated in 11 categories and enjoying big success in previous years. It took home just one award for outstanding music composition.
It was beaten to the main award of the night for best drama series by American show Breaking Bad.
Bonneville, who plays the Earl of Grantham, had tipped Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranstan for best lead actor, despite himself being nominated for the gong. In fact, it was collected by Jeff Daniels, star of The Newsroom.
"I don't think the pressure is on me, frankly, " he said at the pre-awards party.
"I feel slightly embarrassed to have been nominated alongside these amazing actors and much as I love the others I hope it is Bryan Cranston's year because that show has been phenomenal and his performance has been extraordinary.
"He is a great actor, as are the others, but I think it's Breaking Bad's year."
Dame Helen Mirren and British presenter Cat Deeley also missed out on awards.
Stars gathered for the 65th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, where Sir Elton John made a debut performance with a tribute to Liberace.
