It is Emmy Awards night on Sunday. There were not many surprises when the nomination list for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was announced in July. However, History was made when dramas streamed on the Internet received nominations for the first time. The Web streaming service, Netflix, scored a total of 14 nominations for its three dramas series: "House of Cards;" "Arrested Development" and "Hemlock Grove."
