Orange Is the New Black is drama, not comedy!

TV series Orange Is the New Black will compete at the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards in the drama category, after a petition for it to be shifted to the comedy slug, was denied. The TV Academy denied streaming service Netflix’s petition to consider Orange Is the New Black a comedy in this year’s Emmy race.

The show, which competed as a comedy at last year’s Emmys, will have to compete as a drama, and its actors, writers and director too will compete in drama categories. The organisation has officially announced the decision, just days after granting petitions that Shameless, Jane the Virgin, and Glee should be considered dramas at the awards show, reports Orange Is the New Black earned a total of 12 nominations last year. The series won in three categories.
