Netflix is beginning to enjoy the fruits of labor. Following the company's pivotal foray into pushing original content, Netflix has snagged 14 nominations for original online-only web television for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, the company's first.
"House of Cards" bagged nine nominations including "Outstanding Drama Series," "Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series," and "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series." "Arrested Development" also garnered three nominations including "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series." Hemlock Grove, produced by Eli Roth, took two nominations including one for "Outstanding Special Visual Effects."
"We are overwhelmed with 14 nominations and honored by a warm welcome which confirms what we have always believed, that great television is great television regardless of where, when and how it is enjoyed," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. "We are so proud of our series creators and their groundbreaking work on 'House of Cards,' 'Arrested Development' and 'Hemlock Grove.'"
