Looking for something to binge? You’ve come to the right place! Netflix will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, but it’s only been since 2013 that the streaming giant has been producing original TV shows of their own. That year, breakout series “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black” became instant hits and paved the way for dozens of others including binge-worthy fare like “13 Reasons Why” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Click through our photo gallery above highlighting the Top 36 Netflix originals.
For a network that has only been in the Emmy race for four years they’ve amassed more than 100 nominations and gone on to win 23 of those races. Of those wins, documentary “Making a Murderer” made history last year as Netflix’s first show to win a program award at the Emmys when it prevailed in the race for Best Documentary of Nonfiction Series.
Other notable Emmy victories have included “Bloodline” for Best Drama Supporting Actor (Ben Mendelsohn) in 2016, “House of Cards” for Best Drama Directing (David Fincher) in 2013 and Best Drama Guest Actor (Reg E. Cathey) in 2015, “Master of None” for Best Comedy Writing (Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang) in 2016, and “Orange is the New Black” for Best Comedy Guest Actress (Uzo Aduba) in 2014 and Best Drama Supporting Actress (Aduba) in 2015.
While a Netflix original has never won Best Comedy or Drama Series, that could all change this year if Gold Derby’s Emmy experts have their way. As of this writing, “The Crown,” which tells the story of the beginning of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), has leading 5/1 odds to win Best Drama Series. And “Stranger Things,” the sci-fi story about a missing boy set in the 1980s, is tied for second place with 11/2 odds. Over on the comedy front, “Master of None” (12/1 odds) and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt” (18/1 odds) are both predicted to earn repeat series noms.
