Netflix’s ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Wins People’s Choice AwardBy: Chris Crum - January 9, 2014
Another award has been given to a a Netflix original series. The People’s Choice Award winners were revealed on Wednesday, and Orange is the New Black took the Favorite Streaming Series category.
It was likely that a Netflix show was going to win this category anyway, because three out of five of the nominations were Netflix originals (the other two being House of Cards and Arrested Development). Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis and Losing It With John Stamos were also nominated.
It is noteworthy that OITNB won out over these other titles, as House of Cards has won three Emmys, and Arrested Development (which was also Emmy-nominated) had a built in fan base long before Netflix ever got ahold of it.
Orange is the New Black was released too late to be considered for the Emmys in 2013, but don’t be surprised to see it make more than one appearance in 2014.
When Netflix released its quarterly earnings report in October, it revealed that OITNB was its most successful show.
