Congratulations to ‘Downton Abbey’ for their 12 nominations at the 2013 Emmy Awards! See full list of nominees here.

Downton Abbey is set to lead the British hopefuls at this year’s Emmy Awards after scooping a string of nominations in the main categories.

The show – which is due to return to ITV in the autumn for a fourth series – is one of six programmes hoping to win the coveted best drama prize at the prestigious TV awards in September.

And as well as competing in that category, several of the show’s stars will also be hoping to take home gold on the night.

They include Hugh Bonneville, who has been nominated for best drama actor, and Michelle Dockery, who is up for best drama actress for her role as Lady Mary Crawley.

Meanwhile co-stars Jim Carter and Maggie Smith have both scored nominations in their respective categories for best supporting actor and actress.

However the show will face some stiff competition in the drama series category from fellow nominees including Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, Homeland, Mad Men and the Netflix series House Of Cards.

Bonneville, meanwhile, will go head to head in the acting race with fellow Brit Damian Lewis, who is nominated for his role in Homeland.
