Whoa, Julian Fellowes said American's can't do period drama? We don't have the right sense of history? I guess he hasn't seen John Adams from HBO (thirteen Emmys and four Golden Globes) or Titanic (eleven Oscars) or Amadeus (eight Oscars and four Golden Globes). Yeah, Amadeus is historically inaccurate with Mozart and Salieri's relationship, but it sure is DRAMATIC. Grr, that makes me angry.
especially after seeing the travesty of the British Joe Wright-helmed Anna Karenina.
