History has been made in television land as original shows from Netflix have received a total of fourteen Emmy nominations. This is significant on a historical level, because it marks a new era of TV show consumption - one that stems from the Internet. Original online shows are going head to head with the biggest names in television.

Of course it's really about the people involved with the shows more than the medium, but it's still noteworthy.

Netflix had been campaigning heavily to encourage nominations for House of Cards and Arrested Development, but it appears the company got more than it bargained for. Not only did House of Cards pick up nine nominations and Arrested Development pick up three, but even Hemlock Grove picked up a couple. Had Orange is the New Black debuted a little earlier in the year, I suspect we'd be seeing it on the list a few times too.

Following are all the Emmys Netflix shows have been nominated for.

House of Cards

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kevin Spacey)
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series - (Robin Wright)
Outstanding Drama Series (House of Cards)
Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series (David Fincher)
Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series (Casting directors Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert)
Outstanding Cinematography (Director of Photography Eigil Bryld)
Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series (Editor Kirk Baxter)
Outstanding Music Composition For A Series - Original Dramatic Score (Jeff Beal)
Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music (Jeff Beal)

Hemlock Grove

Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music (Nathan Barr)
Outstanding Special Visual Effects (Chris Jones, Jon Massey, Sean Joseph Tompkins, Sallyanne Massimini, Michael Kirylo, Jacob Long, Chris Barsamian, Colin Feist and Kyle Spiker)

Arrested Development

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series (Jason Bateman)
Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series (Editors Kabir Akhtar and AJ Dickerson)
Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (David Schwartz)

It will be interesting to see how many awards Netflix shows are able to claim. They are facing some pretty top notch competition. I wouldn't want to compete in any category against Breaking Bad.
