Historical Win for House of Cards
Netflix is leading the way when it comes to new trends in television. They have disturbed the regular TV setting in more ways than one recently. Then at the Emmy Awards, Netflix made a historic first. Its series, House of Cards, became the first non-traditional show to win an Emmy. Non-traditional in this sense means that it is not shown on regular television.
Aside from House of Cards, there were there two other Netflix originals that received nominations. These shows include Hemlock Grove and Arrested Development. All three were beaten by other shows until House of Cards took home the prize for Outstanding Directing for Drama Series. David Fincher is the one who bagged it for the show.
This marks a huge milestone for Netflix and for internet television series. Expect more to come.
