Orange is the New Black is up for best comedy series. Two cast members were recognized: Taylor Schilling, in the best actress in a TV comedy category, and Uzo Aduba who is nominated for best supporting actress in a TV series, miniseries or motion picture.

Netflix also earned a best actor in a TV comedy nomination for 3-time Globes host Ricky Gervais for his role in Derek, which he both created and starred in.
