The servants of 'Downton' get gussied up

Everyone likes a nice shocker in their awards nights (well, except maybe for people putting money on the outcomes), so it was great to see the clearly astonished cast of PBS' "Downton Abbey" take the SAG award for ensemble in a drama series. Everyone was expecting the cast of "Homeland" or even "Boardwalk Empire" to win. But there was Mrs. Hughes herself (Phyllis Logan) breathless, flustered and looking very unservant-like, introducing the cast of little-known Brits to the room full of Hollywood A-listers.
