Netflix Racks Up Six Golden Globe Nominations
Following the Primetime Emmys, the Producers Guild Awards, the Writers Guild Awards, and the American Film Institute, the Golden Globes are the latest to shower some nominations on Netflix for its original content.
Announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association this morning, Netflix racked up a total of six nominations for its original series “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black,” and semi-original comedy show “Arrested Development.”
Of the three, “House of Cards” topped the list with a total four nominations, one for Best Television Series – Drama, and one each for cast members Kevin Spacey (Best Actor – Drama), Robin Wright (Best Actress – Drama), and Corey Stoll (Best Supporting Actor).
Taylor Schilling will compete against Wright for her performance as Piper Chapman, the lead character in “Orange Is the New Black.” Jason Batemen, who returned this year as Michael Bluth in “Arrested Development,” will add a Golden Globes nomination for Best Actor – Comedy or Musical to his mantle.
Also if you’re keeping a scorecard, HBO received nine total Golden Globe nominations, compared to Netflix’s six.
The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 12, 2014. The show, which will be hosted by the duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the second consecutive year, will be produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.Tags: arrested development, Corey Stoll, Golden Globes, house of cards, Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey, Netflix, Orange Is the New Black, Primetime Emmys, Robin Wright
