All except one.
Abi Morgan scooped a gong for Best Writing in a Mini-Series or Movie, for her work on nostalgic BBC drama 'The Hour' - starring Dominic West, Romola Garai and Ben Whishaw, which was cancelled in the UK after its second series.
Abi Morgan was a surprise winner at this year's Awards
Better-known faces like Damian Lewis and Hugh Bonneville lost out to actor Jeff Daniels ('The Newroom') in the Best Actor in a Drama category - the biggest upset of the night with 'Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston the stand-out favourite - and 'Sherlock' star Benedict Cumberbatch was beaten by the firm favourite in the Best Actor In a Movie or Mini-Series category, Michael Douglas for his turn as Liberace in 'Behind the Candelabra'.
