Historic Golden Globe for Netflix’s House of Cards

robin-wrightNetflix has become the first original online programming service to earn a major television award, with Robin Wright being named Best Actress in a Drama Television Series at the Golden Globes for her performance in Netflix’s political drama series, House of Cards.

The programme – Netflix’s first foray into original programming – was also nominated for Best Drama Series and two other acting awards, Best Actor in a Drama Television Series for Kevin Spacey and Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film for Corey Stoll.

Ceremony co-host Amy Poehler – who picked up her own Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Television Series for her role in Parks & Recreation – joked: “Enjoy it while it lasts, Netflix — you’re not going to feel so smug in a few years when Snapchat is up here accepting for Best Drama.”

Netflix in September 2013 became the first online television provider to win a Primetime Emmy with David Fincher garnering Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for the pilot episode of House of Cards.
