So when going over the emmy nominations yesterday I was extremely thrilled that Downton Abbey received nominations for Writing and Directing. However, when I looked at who was nominated I see that it was Julian Fellowes and Jeremy Webb for ‘Episode 4’. There’s one problem with that. Julian Fellowes and Jeremy Webb wrote and directed episode 5!! Andy Goddard directed episode 4. Is this an oversight from PBS or is this an Emmy screw-up. Someone should look into this because if Episode 5 was meant to be submitted it has more oomph for Emmy voters.
The American and British broadcasts differ. So Episode 5 for US is actually Episode 4 for the original British broadcast, which it seems they went with.
^ It’s actually the other way around. Episode 4 in US is Episode 5 in UK.
Basically here’s how they are in US and UK
Eps 1 and 2 (UK) – Ep 1 in US
Ep 3 in UK – Ep 2 in US
Ep 4 in UK – Ep 3 in US
Ep 5 in UK – Ep 4 in US
Ep 6 in UK – Ep 5 in US
Ep 7 in UK – Ep 6 in US
