    I finally got to see “Downton Abbey” as I was waiting to go with my sister. I didn’t like it… I LOVED IT! It just felt so good to be a part of these characters again that I so enjoy! I really, really enjoyed it – I hope there is a DA2!!

    I think Allen Leech, Robert James-Collier & Maggie Smith all deserve Oscar nominations. Michelle Dockery too whilst I’m at it.

    I just wish a lot of the other actors had more to do though – personally I’d love another series rather than a film because a hell of lot more can be covered in about 9 hours than a 2 hours film.

    Frankly, the film could have gone on another two hours for me because as it was it flew by too quickly at two hours – I could have remained to watch more for hours and hours. Like the entire series not a minute is wasted.

    I agree. I could have watched this movie for another two hours. I also agree that Robert James Collier and Maggie Smith deserve award nomination recognition – I really like Barrow’s short storyline and the Dowager Countess’ last scene. My sister and I both teared up. I hope there is another movie, but another season of 10 episodes would be better. I can think of so many storylines for these folks at Downton!

    I like Barrow’s storyline but not an Oscar calibre performance for me from Collier. He was just fine. If there is to be nominated for Best Supporting Actor that is between Allen Leech and Kevin Doyle. The fans are raving about Doyle’s performance and considered as memorable and a scene – stealing one despite how limited his screentime was. Of course Dame Maggie is very very deserving of Supporting Actress nomination.

    Other chances for the DA are Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Costume Design, and Production Design. The success in the box-office, earning over $100 million over $20 million budget is something cannot be ignored plus the cast and crews are participating in the SAG and Academy  conversation to enhance their chances to get nominated. For now I say good luck to them. I’m happy enough to see them again thru the silver screen.

    Downton Abbey deserves to be nominated for Best Picture, Supporting Actress for Maggie Smith, Costume, Design, Production Design and Adapted Screenplay. I am on the fence about Allen Leech and James James-Collier for Supporting Actor.

    This 2 hour went fast and I enjoyed every second of it.

    Let’s be real. Maggie Smith isn’t getting a nod for a role she played a thousand times and better.

    We are for real but we don’t mind if she’s not getting nominated. Awards doesn’t mean to her anyway. She had enough of it.

    Am I actually the only one who thought Allen Leech’s storylines were the worst part of the film?

    I think so. Sorry to say but none of the storylines are worst.

    I forgot to comment on the movie here since it only came ou on Brazil recently.

    It’s a terrific british soap just like the show! Production and costume design, makeup & hairstyling noms are the shot.
    I admit having higher expectations on the royals arrival but I assume their personalities being quite dull were actually on par with the created situation.
    The downstairs people were on fire and was amazing seeing them plotting to work on the big dinner. Mr. Molesley was a scene stealer!!
    Also, Thomas had a happy ending gladly. Robert James-Collier’s acting has always been underrated since he made such a complex and hateful person sympathetic enough to deserve a redemption. However I personally thought the screenplay didn’t live up to his potential. After spending so many time in lolliness in the show and all the characters having strong love and friendship arcs I thought Thomas would get more attention when his chance came. Given more 2 or 3 scenes to him and he’d be my bet to Supporting Actor.

    And in conclusion as a previously stated in other threads, I’M CAMPAIGNING FOR MAGGIE SMITH THIS SEASON. Her final scene and farewell to the character was the coronation Violet and Maggie herself deserved for doing it so neatly. And she was sharp as ever. CONSIDER MAGGIE SMITH FOR SUPPORTING ACTRESS.
