UPDATE: Here's How Streaming Majors Did With Emmy Noms

Focusing mainly on streaming shows actors:
 Three streaming comedies--"Master of None"(Netflix), ""Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" (Netflix) and "Transparent" (Amazon) are among the seven nominees for outstanding comedy in this year's Emmy race. Only "House of Cards" from Netflix was nominated in the outstanding drama field.  The Emmy nominations were just announced in Hollywood. 

Among actors nominated were Lily Tomlin as outstanding actress in a comedy "Grace and Frankie (Netflix) and Ellie Kemper from "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." In the drama end of that competition, Robin Wright was nominated as best actress in "House of Cards." Kyle Chandler was nominated for his starring role in "Bloodlines" (Netflix) and Kevin Spacey repeated for "House of Cards."

Among men, Aziz Ansari was nominated for best actor in a comedy for "Master of None" and Jeffrey Tambor repeated for his transgender role in "Transparent." (Amazon). 

In total, Netflix received 54 nominations, behind HBO's usual leading tally--94 this year--and FX's 56. Amazon Video has 16 nominations.

But "Orange Is The New Black" (Netflix) was shunned for outstanding comedy honors, and so was "The Good Wife (CBS) in the drama category. Some thought the durable Sunday night CBS drama would have earned a congratulatory nod in its last season. 

The most nominations of all sorts went "Game of Thrones" (HBO) with 23, and "The People Vs. O.J. Simpson" (FX), with 22.
