In some ground breaking news just released we discovered that the Netflix show Orange Is The New Black and Scandal are both up for Award recognition for the first time for the 2013 AFI Film Awards! These Awards are usually led to more Awards and are usually recognized as one of the leading Awards to others such as the Emmys and more so this is a great look for both shows!
Check out the article from Deadline:
There are no hard rules for AFI’s list of Top 10 programs of the year as the film institute tends to mix critical darlings with crowd pleasers, series, miniseries and TV movies. (Cable ratings juggernauts The Walking Deadand American Horror Story: Asylummade the list last year, along with HBO movie Game Change). No longform entries on this year’s list, which features one major surprise — the omission of ABC’s Emmy-winning Modern Family, which had been among AFI’s Top 10 programs in each of the past four years. Also MIA this season is Showtime’s drama Homeland, which made the cut the last two years. This is the most drama-heavy AFI list I can remember, with only one half-hour series, HBO’s Veep. (Netflix’s hourlong Orange Is The New Black was nominated as a comedy by the WGA but is competing as a drama for the Golden Globes and the Emmys) The guilty pleasure on the roster is ABC’s hot sophomore drama Scandal, landing its first major best series awards recognition. The rest of the series all have been in top awards consideration and received WGA noms last week, with the exception Game Of Thrones, which was not in the running due to a submission error. Returning from last year are Game Of Thrones, Emmy winner Breaking Bad and Mad Men.
Here is the full list:
GAME OF THRONES
THE GOOD WIFE
HOUSE OF CARDS
MASTERS OF SEX
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
