Downton Abbey has scored 11 nominations at this year’s Emmy Awards.

As well as the prestigious nod for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie, the ITV programme has been recognised for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for Elizabeth McGovern and Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie for Dame Maggie Smith.

But the show has some tough competition as it will face The Kennedys and Mildred Pierce among others in the Outstanding Miniseries or Movie category.
