Netflix basks in 6 big Globe nominations
NEW YORK – Netflix, which didn’t exist as an original television programming source until February, snagged six Golden Globe nominations on Thursday – more than stalwarts ABC, CBS and NBC.
HBO led all TV networks with nine nominations. Starz and Showtime joined Netflix with six each while CBS and NBC each had five and ABC had four.
Netflix’s political series “House of Cards” earned a nomination for best TV drama, while Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright were nominated for their acting in the series. With the release of its inaugural season in February, “House of Cards” represented Netflix’s first foray into TV programming. It also earned an Emmy nomination earlier this year, but Netflix is still searching for its first award.
Another Netflix series, “Orange is the New Black,” earned Taylor Schilling a nomination for best drama actress.
