Netflix Original Show 'Master of None' Wins Emmy Award For Writing
Netflix has shaken the movie and cable business industry to its core with its original shows that viewers can binge watch to their heart's delight.
Shows like "Daredevil," "House of Cards" and "Stranger Things" have taken smartphones and living rooms by storm gluing in viewers onto their screens like never before.
Although Netflix earned millions from all these compelling stories, what the company really wanted was official recognition for the quality of their programs.
Netflix has been pouring in millions in the last few months campaigning for this year's Emmy Awards to de-throne long time champion Time Warner Inc.'s HBO, which season after season has won the most number of Emmy awards than any other network.
In this year's Emmy's, Netflix's hard work may finally be bearing fruit.
Netflix recently received its very first award for TV writing at the 68th annual Emmy Awards last Sunday night through the works of Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang for their work on "Master of None," a Netflix comedy original where Ansari portrays an aspiring actor.
Their show won the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.
According to Entertainment weekly Ansari and Yang created the story after collaborating on NBC's "Parks and Recreation."
In "Master of None" the two constantly brainstormed and explored various life issues ordinary people go through like online dating and life as immigrants in a foreign country.
Although the show began only in November 2015, "Master of None" was one of the most talked about and critically reviewed shows of 2016.
Its episodes would go viral on Facebook, Twitter and Reddit, generating massive word of mouth popularity for the program.
The show also got other major nominations, including a Golden Globe citation for Ansari as Best Actor in a Television Series (Comedy or Musical). It was also nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.
Despite Netflix's win, HBO was still king of the hill in the recent Emmys. According to Bloomberg, one of the biggest winners of the awards night was HBO's medieval fantasy drama "Game of Thrones," which won awards for best writing, directing and drama series.
HBO's "Game of Thrones" is one of the most-watched dramas on cable both in the U.S. and overseas, adding thousands of new viewers with each new season.
Emmy Awards 2016 was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California with late-night TV personality Jimmy Kimmel as host.
