The popular Netflix series changes its plans to submit for next year's Golden Globes and Emmy Awards as comedy, choosing to compete in drama categories instead.
"Orange Is the New Black" has had a change of heart regarding its participation at next year's awards shows. TVLine reports that the Netflix series decided to enter the races for Golden Globes and Emmy Awards as drama, instead of comedy like its original plans.
A representative for Netflix has confirmed the switch, but does not provide the reason. The switch is quite odd considering the fact that competition in most drama categories is fiercer than in the comedy field. Moreover, the Taylor Schilling starrer will face off Netflix's other critically-acclaimed series, "House of Cards".
Production for season 2 of "Orange Is the New Black" is currently underway. Laura Prepon, who was said not returning for the second installment, will reportedly appear in four episodes. She has dyed her hair black to reprise her role as the on-again/off-again girlfriend of Schilling's Piper Chapman.
