Add another award to the Netflix trophy case. Actress Robin Wright scored a Golden Globe Sunday night in the Best Actress In A TV Drama category for her role as Claire Underwood in House of Cards.

Wright was up against Julianna Margulies for The Good Wife, Tatiana Maslany for Orphan Black, Kerry Washington for Scandal and Taylor Schilling for Netflix's Orange is the New Black.

Netflix shows actually had a total of six nominations among them. In addition to Wright's and Schilling's, Kevin Spacey was up for Best Actor in a TV Drama (HoC), Corey Stoll was up for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie (HoC), House of Cards was up for Best TV Series, Drama, and Jason Bateman was up for Best Actor in a TV Comedy for Arrested Development.

House of Cards took three Emmys last year. The new season is set to debut on February 14th. It will be Netflix's first foray into 4K ultra HD video, though most people probably won't see it that way for a while.

Last week, Netflix released director's commentary for all of the first season.

Netflix's Orange is the New Black won a People's Choice Award last week. The company is also looking for some Oscar love with a recent documentary acquisition. The nominations will be announced on Thursday.
