    Isn’t it going to be a Television production for PBS?

    It will never happen but her winning a long overdue third oscar for this, perhaps her most renowned role in an incredible career, would be very fitting.

    I hope every remaining cast member would agree to do it now that we know even Maggie didn’t turn it down! And even some of the older ones who had left the show earlier like O’Brien(Please!!)

    Maggie Smith will again play the Dowager Countess, but this time on the big screen.

    Well, the article says that she would if a film comes to fruition; not that she will. The title of this thread is misleading. Julian Fellowes says in the same article that he “would love to make” a movie, not that he has signed onto one or anything.

    Her only challenge in winning a 3rd Oscar is precedent. Since no one ever has won 3 Oscars with 2 of them in supporting. Assuming her role in the feature film version is a supporting one. This is why Michael Caine will likely never win the elusive Best Actor statuette he covets.

    Smith 2/6: 1 Lead, 1 Supporting

    Bergman 3/7: 2 Lead, 1 Supporting
    Nicholson 3/12: 2 Lead, 1 Supporting
    Streep 3/19: 2 Lead, 1 Supporting

    This is terrible journalism by The Guardian. If you actually read the original interview with the Abbey actor, he doesn’t say the movie is confirmed. He says if a movie were to happen, you would think that Maggie Smith would be involved, cause how could she not be?
    That’s what the article jumped all over and it’s just silly.

    If there is a Downton movie, I doubt Maggie would be part of it. She’s already said her character is ridiculously old, given the time jumps across the series.

    From Variety:

    The long-awaited “Downton Abbey” movie is happening, with the original main cast from the hit series returning and production starting this summer.

    The film will be a Carnival Films production, with Focus Features and Universal Pictures International distributing. Julian Fellowes, who created the period drama, has written the screenplay and will produce the feature.

    Gareth Neame, Carnival’s executive chairman, will also produce. He said: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production. Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as ‘Downton’ comes to the big screen”.

    Brian Percival (“The Book Thief”), who directed the original series’ pilot, will direct the film.

    “Downton Abbey” became a global hit over its six-season run. It followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country home.

    “Since the series ended, fans of ‘Downton’ have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter,” said Focus chairman Peter Kujawski. “We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of ‘Downton’ to the big screen.”

    Many of the cast of the series had spoken of their willingness to return for a big-screen “Downton” and the producers said Friday the original principal cast from the drama are on board the movie.

    The series garnered numerous awards including a trio of Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, a Special BAFTA award. With 69 nominations, it was the most nominated non-U.S. television show in the history of the Emmys.

    So Maggie Smith is probably going to get another Oscar nom. Cool. Has anyone won an Oscar for the same role they played on TV and won an Emmy for before?

    Dame Maggie will be the third-oldest Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, behind Gloria Stuart and Ruby Dee. 🙂
