Updated: House of Cards did it, breaking Netflix into the Emmys in a big way with nine nominations, including one for best drama series. Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris (filling in last minute for House of Cards' Kate Mara) announced the nominations in Los Angeles, in what was a big morning for the streaming service's fledging original programming. Of course, cable still dominated, with shows like Girls and Veep crowding into what had been network territory and HBO garnering a whopping 108 nominations. American Horror Story: Asylum emerged as the most nominated piece of programming with 17 nominations, followed by Game of Thrones with 16.  Here's the list of nominees in the biggest categories.
