House of Cards and OITNB earn noms in traditional TV categories, while Epic Rap Battles and VGHS duke it out with ESPN and Jerry Seinfeld in digital.
December 2, 2014

Netflix’s House of Cards and Orange is the New Black were on the list of 2015 Producers Guild of America Awards nominees announced on Monday, but they weren’t in the digital series category.

House of Cards – which premieres its third season on Feb. 27 – was nominated for the Norman Felton Award for outstanding episodic television, drama, alongside AMC’s Breaking Bad, PBS’s Downton Abbey and HBO’s Game of Thrones and True Detective.

Orange is the New Black was nominated for the Danny Thomas Award for outstanding episodic television comedy, with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, FX’s Louie, ABC’s Modern Family and HBO’s Veep.

The outstanding digital series nominees were more web-native in nature – ESPN’s 30 for 30 Shorts, Crackle’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Epic Rap Battles of History and season 3 of Video Game High School.

PGA Awards nominations in the categories of documentary motion picture, non-fiction television, competition television, live entertainment & talk television, sports program and children’s program were also announced. Nominations in all other categories will be announced on Jan. 5.

The 2015 Producers Guild Awards will be held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles on Jan. 24.
