Kate Mara in "House of Cards"

With the just-announced revisions to the Writers Guild Awards guidelines, Netflix's "House of Cards" has become eligible for the 2014 TV awards, to be held on February 1. The guidelines now include series that have been produced for initial exhibition in new media, permitting them to compete with TV series in the script and series categories.

Writers Guild of America Presidents Christopher Keyser and Michael Winship stated: “Whether you’re watching content on a TV screen, online on a laptop, or with a hand-held device, outstanding writing and great storytelling deserve the same recognition. These changes in eligibility and submission guidelines reflect the evolution of distribution models in the entertainment industry.”

They did not specify whether "House of Cards" -- which along with the fourth season of "Arrested Development" recently made history as the first digital series to be nominated for Emmys -- was the deciding factor in the guideline changes.
