Netflix Shows Snubbed At Primetime Emmys

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Despite receiving a total of 31 nominations for shows like House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) received no awards at Monday night's Primetime Emmys.

Despite all the hype, and a very clever commercial starring Ricky Gervais, it was broadcast TV (Modern Family) and Cable (Breaking Bad) which picked-up the big prizes.



Netflix actually won seven Creative Arts awards which had been announced a week in advance but none in the highest-profile categories such as "Best Show" or "Best Actor/Actress." Last year, Netflix took home three awards including a "Best Director" Emmy for David Finch from House of Cards. Broadband-only shows have been eligible for Primetime Emmys since 2008.
