The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards are only 48 hours away and people are predicting who might be going home with the most hardware by the time the show is over. As the award show offers a chance to see some of the biggest names on the small screen, it is obvious the screen we watch shows on now includes the computer screen. According to Daily Dot on Friday, Netflix can’t be ignored by traditional television as the competition by the company is fierce. "Orange is the New Black," "House of Cards" and "Derek" are strong shows that deserve recognition and all are nominated in one way or another.

Will Netflix walk away as a big winner on Monday night? If Emmy predictions are right, the actors and actresses that work for shows currently hosted on Netflix could turn the Emmys upside down. Kate Mulgrew, Ricky Gervais and Kevin Spacey are all nominated and deserving of an award in their respective categories. Then there are Emmy nominations for Netflix shows that include the categories of Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Comedy Series.

Last year at the Emmy Awards Netflix didn't do as well as anticipated. The Emmy predictions had people betting on the shows, but nothing materialized. This year, unless “Breaking Bad” or “Mad Men” gets an emotional farewell by sentimental voters expect Netflix to dominate. Not only are the programs intriguing, the lack of restrictions placed on the shows have offered a platform for writers and actors to embrace the craft of creating a show instead of inhibiting the process with ridiculous requirements.

Emmy predictions are never a sure bet, but viewers shouldn't be surprised when Netflix takes home the hardware on Monday night. Watching programs on services like Netflix has become extremely popular so viewers can't be surprised how the latest technology is changing TV.
