The nominations for the 2013 Emmys were just released today by Aaron Paul and Neil Patrick Harris. Kate Mara was scheduled to co-host the announcements with Paul, but due to flight complications the House of Cards star missed out. But some of the most significant nods didn’t go to a network at all. Netflix’s original series House of Cards joined the nominations for best drama series, which included Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Homeland and Mad Men.
It’s a significant mark for Netflix and the Emmys for nominating a show that wasn’t aired on traditional television. The show received nine nominations, including a nod for lead actor Kevin Spacey. Arrested Development’s Jason Bateman was also given a nomination for best lead actor in a comedy series.
Other standouts in this year’s nominees include Game of Thrones (16 nominations), Breaking Bad (13 nominations), 30 Rock (13 nominations) and Mad Men (12 nominations). But for every standout, we see plenty of snubs in some of these leading categories. Mad Men—for the first time since its inception—was left out of the Drama Writing category, Boardwalk Empire missed out on a Best Drama nod for the first time in two years and Arrested Development received a stunning three nominations.
Check out the nomination highlights below, and read the Emmys’ full list here.
The 65th Emmys are set to air on Sept. 22 on CBS with host Neil Patrick Harris.
