Emmy Nominations: Netflix Makes History

At least that’s what all the news reports about the Emmy-nominations announcement are saying. Netflix series “House of Cards” and “Arrested Development” broke through to become the first digitally distributed series to earn a major nomination for the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. “House of Cards” had nine nominations overall. Lead acting nominations for the series went to Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and David Fincher was nominated for directing the opening episode. “Arrested Development” had three noms, including lead comedy actor for Jason Bateman. “American Horror Story” — whose appeal at awards time is further proof that Emmy nominators have even worse taste than Oscar nominators — had 17 nominations for the second year in a row, leading all programs.
