'Downton Abbey' lost out to 'Breaking Bad' at the Golden Globes last night (12.01.14).

The ITV period drama - which won Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television in 2012- missed out on the Best TV Drama prize as the meth-cook saga also beat off competition from 'The Good Wife', 'House of Cards' and 'Masters of Sex' to take the prestigious accolade.

'Breaking Bad' scored a double win at the ceremony, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, as the show's leading man Bryan Cranston won the accolade for Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Television Series for his portrayal of meth-dealing chemistry teacher Walter White.

Despite missing out on an accolade, Michelle Dockery, 32, and Laura Carmichael, 27, ensured 'Downton' was well represented in the style stakes by swapping their period costumes for stunning outfits as they walked the red carpet at the event.

Michelle - who portrays Lady Mary Crawley in the period drama - wore a strapless Oscar De La Renta sequinned dress with matching satin heels, while blonde beauty Laura (Lady Edith Crawley) showed off some cleavage with her black and white Viktor & Rolf column dress.

Other winners in the TV categories on the night included US comedy series 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine', which won Best Comedy or Musical Television Series and star of the show Andy Samberg took home the prize for Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy or Musical Television Series.

Amy Poehler, who hosted the ceremony alongside her friend Tina Fey, won Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy or Musical Television Series for 'Parks and Recreation', beating the likes of Zooey Deschanel and Lena Dunham.
