The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking of the Countess … the season three promotional cast shot is online, and it features some of the heralded new castmates and a foreboding dark sky (oooh symbolism!). Check it out after the jump!

“Downtown Abbey”‘s season three premiere on January 6 is a long way off. But it’s never too early for spoilers! At a press tour last night for the Television Critics Association, creator Julian Fellowes spilled the beans on what we can expect from the PBS upstairs/downstairs tale. Namely, Shirley MacLaine.

The 2012 Emmy Award Nominations were announced this morning and, personally, I was pretty stoked on the nominations. “Girls” and Lena Dunham were nominated in the comedy series and lead actress categories which made me think two things: A) “Girls” is a comedy series? and B) Suck it, haters! Practically the entire cast of “Breaking Bad” was nominated (though Saul and Hector were overlooked, in my opinion), as were a number of actors from “Downton Abbey.” “Mad Men” represented, as did “Game of Thrones” — Peter Dinklage, I’d guess, is a lock to win his category. After the jump, check out the nominations for all the major TV categories (those in bold are who I’m rooting for, because I know you care), and the rest of the nominees at the link.

Could there be two worlds set more far apart than that of party monster baseball player Kenny Powers and the genteel universe of butlers, maids and secret eavesdropping at Downton Abbey? And yet! When the two come together, something more than magical occurs. It’ll have you wondering why it took so long for someone to sloppily edit these two TV shows together.
Lady Sybil Crawley on “Downton Abbey” is my new girl crush and not just because she’s a rabblerousing feminist. The actress who plays Sybil, named Jessica Brown Findlay, is a jaw-droppingly lovely “English rose,” as they say. Jewelry designer Dominic Jones must agree, because he’s hired Jessica to appear in ads for his new jewelry line. I’m not going to pretend to like her makeup style here — it evokes Angelina Jolie from the Billy Bob days, or maybe any Helena Bonham Carter movie — but, hey, the jewelry looks pretty! [Styleite]
