Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange
The nominations are in for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, and many of the actors and showrunners who received nods have expressed their gratitude — and, in some cases, surprise.
See what the stars had to say:
Jessica Lange, American Horror Story, Supporting Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries: "I want to thank the academy for honoring American Horror Story. ... It's been wonderful to work on a show with such talented actors and the fabulous creative team of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and all the brilliant writers who make Constance such an interesting character to play."
As the Dowager Countess might say, "Good heavens!" Downton Abbey star Elizabeth McGovern is looking to clarify comments she says have now been misinterpreted as a slam against the hit PBS drama.
Speaking in New York at the Tribeca Film Festival to promote her new feature Cheerful Weather for the Wedding, McGovern admitted to the Los Angeles Times that season two of Downton had "a slightly different tone... partly because the show had to...

In the midst of the hoopla surrounding the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's fateful collision with an iceberg, Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes weighs in with Titanic, a four-hour upstairs/downstairs retelling of the ship's maiden — and final — voyage (airing Saturday at 8/7c and Sunday at 9/8c on ABC).
Could David Boreanaz land a role on the prestigious British drama Downton Abbey simply by asking for one? Fans will have to wait and see, but the Bones star thinks he'd make a great suitor for Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery), and he's taken to Twitter to ask Julian Fellowes, the show's writer and executive producer, if he agrees.

Going through Downton Abbey withdrawal? Unfortunately, Mister Bates, the Dowager Countess and O'Brien won't be back for a third season on PBS until next January, but ABC hopes you'll bide that time by tuning in this spring to Titanic, the next project from Downton creator Julian Fellowes.

"It's good to remind people, love is love," says Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. And more than 15 million viewers in the U.S. and U.K. are having a love affair with the palace-size hit, which has reinvigorated period drama and earned raves around the world (100 countries have acquired rights to air the show). Far from a sophomore slump, Season 2 of the sumptuous series about life among the British gentry and their servants during World War I has broadened the story's scope to take in the violence of the battlefields and the impact of the conflict on the residents both upstairs and down.
