Netflix Wins First Emmys Outside of Technology/Engineering

First time an online service has been nominated for Emmys, 14 of them


Netflix won its first Emmy award -- the kind doled out at the flashy, star-studded televised ceremony -- Sunday night, as David Fincher won for best directing of a drama series.

The online subscription-video service, which has been touting itself of late as the "world's leading Internet television provider," was nominated for 14 primetime Emmy awards this year, the first time that an online-only service had shows in the running for one of television's top creative honors.
