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!!October 2, 2019 at 3:45 am #1203117147
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!October 2, 2019 at 10:03 am #1203117666
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.October 6, 2019 at 4:48 pm #1203124630
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.October 6, 2019 at 5:57 pm #1203124690
Let’s be real. Maggie Smith isn’t getting a nod for a role she played a thousand times and better.

Am I actually the only one who thought Allen Leech’s storylines were the worst part of the film?April 19, 2021 at 5:54 am #1204208944
Sequel confirmed! And coming this christmas!April 19, 2021 at 6:53 am #1204209029
I’ve recently watched the entire series and the movie and I was already missing them, this is such good news!April 19, 2021 at 6:55 am #1204209032
Why wasn’t the first one a Christmas film, that’s the perfect release for a film like this.

Will Maggie Smith be back after the ending of the first one? I don’t know if I’d like that tbh …

Yeah, this is exciting. I know some people are mixed on the first one but I thought it was great and deserved more awards-season love.
