With Emmy nominations, Netflix is in the house

Today the Emmy Awards got a bit more complicated and crowded — just like TV in general. The 2013 nominations, announced from Los Angeles this morning by Neil Patrick Harris and Aaron Paul, contain a number of significant nods to Netflix, a new outlet for original programming that falls well outside both the network, basic cable, and pay cable models.

The Internet streaming service won three major 2013 drama nominations, with political thriller “House of Cards” as best drama and two of its actors, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, as best actor and actress. Jason Bateman of Netflix’s fourth season of the resurrected “Arrested Development” was given a best actor nod in a comedy. Including writing, directing, and production categories, Netflix got 14 nominations in all, including two for its horror thriller “Hemlock Grove.”
