HomeAwardsAwards CentralHouse of Cards Snags Historic Emmy Nominations Luke Kerr July 18, 2013 Awards Central, Emmys, Pop Confidential, TV 5 Comments If you haven’t watched Netflix’s political drama, House of Cards, now is probably a good time for a marathon. The Kevin Spacey-starrer earned an Outstanding Drama Series nomination, joining Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Homeland and Mad Men in the category. House of Cards is the first online exclusive series to be nominated for one of the two major show categories. Netflix’s continuation of Arrested Development earned acting nominations this year, but the series won Outstanding Comedy in 2004 while still airing on Fox. Broadcast comedies The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and 30 Rock will go up against cable darlings Girls, Louie and VEEP in the Outstanding Comedy Series category Of the shows nominated in the Drama and Comedy categories, Game of Thrones led with 16 nominations. However, it is FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum—nominated for Outstanding TV Miniseries or Movie—that earned the most nominations with 17. .

Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon July 18, 2013 I’m very happy for Nurse Jackie, my favorite dramedy of the past couple of years. Three acting nominations!!!! One of them for gorgeous Bobby Cannavale who is also nominated for Boardwalk Empire, another favorite of mine.
