Netflix Shut Out at the Primetime Emmys

Despite high hopes and 31 nominations, Netflix went home empty-handed at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards.

The digital video giant did capture seven wins at last week’s Creative Arts ceremony. But on Monday night, acclaimed shows “House of Cards,” nominated for acting and directing and drama series, and “Orange Is the New Black” lost in all categories, in addition to the Ricky Gervais starrer “Derek.”

Leading up to the kudocast there was much discussion over how the submission of “Orange Is the New Black” as a comedy would play out, as the show would was vying against HBO’s “Veep” and “Silicon Valley,” FX’s “Louie,” CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and the reigning champion “Modern Family.” Many in the biz thought that the buzz surrounding the prison-set series would work in its favor.

The Emmycast even included a joke from host Seth Meyers about the broadcast networks throwing a big awards ceremony only to give all the trophies to cable and Netflix.

“Orange’s” three wins at Creative Arts included one for Uzo Aduba, but other acting nominees Kate Mulgrew and Taylor Schilling were shut out.

“House of Cards” also claimed just one win of its 13 nominations — in the sound mixing field — a drop from its three category victories last year.
