Can the Dowager Countess take home the Golden Globe now that Jessica Lange has been promoted from supporting to lead on "American Horror Story: Asylum"? For Maggie Smith's sake, we would say yes.
"Downton Abbey" deserves some love, and there's no better recipient this year, considering the actress is also up against Jennifer Lawrence for best actress for musical or comedy (and there's no chance there).
Still, it's not in the bag, and Hayden Panettiere ("Nashville"), Archie Panjabi ("The Good Wife"), Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family") and Sarah Paulson (who is nominated for "Game Change") are all in the running. We say Smith is the queen of zingers, and who better to liven up the Globes with a well-timed spike? We do hope she's interrupting something.
