Netflix is no longer the sole streaming site among the Hollywood elite.

The Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominations for the Golden Globes this morning, and among the mix of usual names and surprises came multiple nominations for digital studios, including recognition for Amazon.

House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, no longer rookies in the awards-show circuit, received three nominations apiece in the TV Drama and TV Comedy categories. Along with Best Drama and Best Comedy respectively, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are among the Best Actor and Best Actress nominees for House of Cards.

OITNB’s Taylor Schilling and Uzo Aduba are vying for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series, Miniseries, or Motion Picture. Laverne Cox, who was nominated for the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy over summer, was shut out of the Golden Globes.

Derek’s Ricky Gervais is also up for Best Actor in a Comedy.

Amazon’s Transparent has taken the Internet by storm for its portrayal of trans people, and now it’s been recognized by the HFP. The show is up for Best Comedy. Star Jeffrey Tambor, who portrays a trans woman transitioning later in life, has been nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy.

While Netflix has basked in the nominations in the past, it has had less success at the actual ceremony. Wright won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama last year and Aduba won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series earlier this year.

The Golden Globes ceremony airs Jan. 11, 2015.
