If Netflix´s "House of Cards" and "Arrested Development" become the first online shows to reap Emmy nominations Thursday, July 18, it will be a watershed moment for programs that don´t need television sets to make a splash.

While the rest of the planet was watching Breaking Bad on AMC, director David Fincher, CEO Reed Hastings, and the rest of the Netflix family were celebrating the Internet's first Emmy award.

Fincher took home the Emmy for Best Director of a Drama Series for helming House of Cards, which hit your Instant Queue back in February. The series was responsible for nine of Netflix's 14 Primetime Emmy nominations.

If you've seen The Social Network, you won't be at all surprised that famous moving pictures director David Fincher was too cool to be there in person to accept the Internet's Emmy.
