'House of Cards' makes Emmy history as the 65th annual awards nominations are announced

The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday, and "House of Cards" made Emmy history. The Netflix-only -- and thus, Internet-only -- series became the first show not aired on broadcast or cable networks to be nominated for an award.

The Kevin Spacey / Robin Wright starring series joined last year's incumbents, "Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland" and "Mad Men" as Emmy nominees for Outstanding drama series.

The major broadcast networks were shut out of the prestigious category, a reprise of 2012's nominations. The entry of Netflix's video-streamed drama series doesn't bode well for the fortunes of the networks, who have seen many original and critically-acclaimed series move to cable -- and now the Internet.

Other Netflix-only nominations came, as well, and not just to "House of Cards." Jason Bateman, who stars in "Arrested Development," received a nomination for Outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, while Spacey and Wright received nods for Outstanding lead actor and actress in a drama series, respectively.

In terms of more traditional series, "Modern Family" again dominated among the supporting actor and actress category. To emphasize its place as an ensemble series, the cast submits only in those categories, not in the the lead categories.

"Homeland" and "Modern Family" were the top drama and comedy winners, respectively, in 2012.

The 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air Sept. 22 on CBS, with Neil Patrick Harris hosting.
