Tonight, Netflix hit a milestone as it became the first original online programming service to earn a major television award.

"House of Cards," which marked 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. said, "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." Last September, Netflix already made history by being the first online television provider to win a Primetime Emmy: the award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series earned by David Fincher for directing the pilot episode of "House of Cards." Netflix is available on the Web and on a variety of Netflix-ready devices, including iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Apple TV.
