House of Cards

Netflix will once again have a big presence at the Emmys. It’s been nominated for a wide array of awards this year, including outstanding drama series for House of Cards and outstanding comedy series for Orange is the New Black. House of Cards’ leads Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright have been nominated for outstanding lead actor and actress in a drama series as well. Ricky Gervais has been nominated in the lead comedy actor category for Derek, and Taylor Schilling has been nominated in the lead comedy actress category for Orange is the New Black. A win by Netflix in these categories is far from a sure thing, however: it’s up against some impressive competition. For outstanding drama series, the other nominees include Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and True Detective. In the comedy series, Orange is the New Black will be facing off against Louie, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, The Big Bang Theory, and Veep.
