Who knew that Lady Edith Crawley could pound it out?

The Downton Abbey cast stopped by the PEOPLE Now studios on Wednesday just in time to hear that the show had been nominated for two Screen Actors Guild awards.

While Maggie Smith grabbed a nod for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series, the cast was also honored with an ensemble nomination.

After Phyllis Logan, Lesley Nicol and Laura Carmichael fist-bumped to their success, they shared the credit for their nominations with creator Julian Fellowes.

“He’s just a great storyteller. He writes great characters,” Logan tells PEOPLE Now.

The 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will air on both TNT and TBS on Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
