Netflix drama “House of Cards” made history at last year’s Emmys by becoming the first online only provider to win awards.
We will discuss those historic victories with the show’s creator Beau Willimon in a live chat this Thursday at 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET on Gold Derby’s home page. The complete second season of hhis political drama was released on Netflix this year on Valentine’s Day.
Over the course of the 13 episodes, Congressman Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) maneuvered his way into the Vice President’s office and was sworn in as President in the finale. First Lady Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) helped him scheme his way into that role, proving to be just as devious. Reporter Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) was killed while Chief of Staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) was left for dead.
At last year’s Emmys, the show earned nine nominations in all, including bids for Best Drama Series (losing to “Breaking Bad“), Drama Actor (Spacey), and Drama Actress (Wright). David Fincher prevailed for directing the pilot episode, and Eigil Bryld won for the lensing of that same segment. Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert also took home awards for casting the series.
