Television newcomers "True Detective," a crime drama from HBO, and "Orange is the New Black," a dark prison comedy from Netflix, rack up a dozen Emmy nominations each - challenging stalwarts like "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family." Online streaming company Netflix Inc more than doubled its nominations for TV's highest honors last year, reaching 31 with political thriller "House of Cards" earning 13 nods. HBO's medieval thriller "Game of Thrones" led all nominees with 19 and pushed the premium cable network's overall nods to 99, the most of any network for the 14th year in a row. While cable and online streaming fared well, the broadcast networks were once again shut out of the top competition, best drama. AMC's drug tale "Breaking Bad" will compete there for its final season, along with the network's ad world drama "Mad Men," "House of Cards," PBS's British period drama "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones" and "True Detective." The winners will be announced August 25.
