ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) In TV drama at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday (January 27), the British cooks and countesses period show "Downton Abbey" won best ensemble cast. The British World War One-era drama features posh accents and fancy clothes, with a colorful cast of aristocrats, heiresses and kitchen maids. "Laura Carmichael and I, who plays Edith Crawley were out one evening in New York and we ran into some fans and the two of us were in jeans and leather jackets and they could barely look at us both because they were appalled we were in modern clothes and not in fancy dresses," joked "Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery backstage. "But it's just amazing the response here. It's really wonderful." The SAG Awards is among the most-watched during Hollywood's awards season because actors make up the largest voting group in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which chooses the Oscar winners. The SAG honors are selected by about 100,000 actors working in the United States.
