Netflix’s an online streaming service popular in the US early this year introduced a new push into original content modal and it seems to finally be paying off as it has received its latest positive feedback from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, netting 14 nominations for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Most of those went to standout series House of Cards, which was nominated for Most Outstanding Drama, with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright nominated for outstanding lead actor and actress awards. Netflix will need to launch a few more hits if it wants to pass other players in the entertainment space.
HBO’s Game of Thrones the most pirated series of all time received 16 nominations by itself while the network totaled 108, but as the first ever nominated for streaming content, it’s off to a good start.
