Despite one in five Primetime Emmy nominations going to the British, there was only one Emmy awarded last night to British shows, going to Downton Abbey and Dame Maggie Smith for best supporting actress in a drama series.
British actor Damian Lewis won best actor in drama series for his role in US thriller Homeland, which landed two other Emmys.

Downton had been up for 16 nominations, the most a British drama has received at the Emmys. Sherlock and Luther were also both nominated in different categories.

However, behind the scenes, in the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys, the British fared better, with both Frozen Planet and Great Expectations getting four awards and Downton Abbey receiving two.

Studio Lambert’s Undercover Boss for CBS network won the gong for outstanding reality programme, while Frozen Planet was awarded outstanding non fiction series.

Frozen Planet also won outstanding cinematography for a non fiction show and Great Expectations won outstanding cinematography for a mini series, going to DoP Florian Hoffmeister.

Other Creative Arts Emmys went to Frozen Planet editors Andy Netley and Sharon Gillooly and sound editing team Kate Hopkins, Tim Owens and Paul Fisher.

Great Expectations won for title design, the award going to Nic Benns as designer, Rodi Kaya as 3D artist and Tom Bromwich, titles producer. It also won for art direction, the award going to production designer David Roger, art director Paul Ghirardin and set decorator Jo Kornstein. The Dickens adaptation was also awarded for outstanding costumes for a miniseries, for Annie Symons and Yvonne Duckett

Downton Abbey won two Emmys. John Lunn was awarded for outstanding music composition for a series and Annie “Nosh” Oldham and Christine Greenwood won for outstanding hair styling for a single camera series.
