Maggie Smith Responds to Jimmy Kimmel Emmys 2016 Lost & Found Joke

Maggie Smith has responded to Jimmy Kimmel‘s bit at last night’s Emmy Awards, where he claimed he was putting her trophy in the lost and found!

The 81-year-old legendary actress won the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series award for her work on Downton Abbey. Earlier in the show, Jimmy said he would be putting any award in lost and found if the recipient was not around to claim the prize. Maggie was not in attendance at the show.

“I was very astonished and pleased to win the award. I feel the Emmys have been overly generous to me. If Mr. Kimmel could please direct me to the lost and found office I will try and be on the next flight. Love, Old Maggie, ” she wrote.

    Introduction – Household Crafts
    “I’m only a housewife, I’m afraid.” How often do we hear this shocking admission. I’m afraid when I hear it I feel very angy indeed. Only a housewife: only a practitioner of one of the two most noble professions (the other one is that of a farmer); only the mistress of a huge battery of high and varied skills and custodian of civilization itself. Only a typist, perhaps! Only a company director, or a nuclear physicist; only a barrister; only the President! When a woman says she is a housewife she should say it with the utmost pride, for there is nothing higher on this planet to which she could aspire.
    .
    When we think of civilization we tend to think of people like Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Beethoven and Einstein. Well, all praise to such people, their works have enriched our homes, but of what use would their endeavours have been without the basis of a civilized home; of what comfort would their works be to us if our homes were brutish and boring, if we lived, like Nebuchadnezzar, like the beasts but without the beasts’ natural grace and dignity?
    .
    Everything that people do outside the home — on the farm, in the forest, in the factory and counting-house, down the mine or out to sea — is done to provide the essentials of a seemly and comely human exhistence: to sustain and embellish the home. Whatever an honest man is doing, always somewhere in the back of his mind is the thought of his home. “Woman the home maker” would be a better title. And, not to leave him out altogether, “man the husbandman”.
