House Of Cards
The fantasy saga “Game of Thrones,” defying Emmy’s grudging respect for genre fare, emerged as the leader in the nominations announced Thursday, with 19 bids.
The nominations for the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards were announced on Thursday morning, with “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave” earning seven nods each.
“Breaking Bad,” the brutal, drug-fueled saga of an everyman’s ambition turned evil, captured its first best drama Emmy Award on Sunday, denying the online series “House of Cards” a history-making honor.
It’s Emmy time again, and among the nominees for the top awards are five first-time contenders, three of whom have been acting for decades on the big and/or small screen.
With 14 Emmy nominations, the once little mail order provider turned online streaming network, Netflix, has officially made it to the big leagues. Its original productions of “House of Cards” and “Arrested Development” are up against top cable shows including “Game of Thrones” and “The Newsroom” from HBO and “House of Lies” from Showtime.
Netflix’s “House of Cards” made Emmy history Thursday with a top drama series nomination, the first time that television’s leading awards have recognized a program delivered online as equal in quality to the best that TV has to offer.
