Emmys: Maggie Smith Wins Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

The 'Game of Thrones' actress did not appear at the show, but was an ongoing joke of the night.

Maggie Smith won the Emmy for best supporting actress in a drama series on Sunday night for Downton Abbey.

The actress beat out Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones, Lena Headey in Game of Thrones, Maura Tierney in The Affair, Maisie Williams in Game of Thrones and Constance Zimmer in UnREAL.

Smith wasn't present at the ceremony, so host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage on her behalf, joking that she could find her Emmy in the "lost and found."

Prior to Smith's win, Kimmel used a portion of his opening monlogue to tease the actress about her absence at the Emmys each year.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, airing live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
