(FOX) - Netflix is hoping to bring home a lot of gold Monday with its popular shows Orange is the New Black and House of Cards.

The hit show got an impressive 12 Emmy nominations, including one for Taylor Schilling as Best Actress.

"It really is about the work, and the biggest prize of this job is being able to come back on a regular basis and I feel so creatively fulfilled," Schilling said.

Following the success of the streaming service's hit political drama House of Cards, this is the second awards season the online streaming service has garnered so many critical kudos.

So, should network TV be nervous?

"They should be very, very afraid," actress Laverne Cox said. "You know, I'd like think there's a place for everybody, an audience for everyone. I still like broadcast television, and I still love Netflix and it's about choice."

As an online show, Orange has the advantage of offering fans a full season all at once. Binge watching can be key to a series' success.

"Releasing the whole series at once, you're able to tell a story in a different way," actor Jason Biggs said. "You don't have to wrap each episode up nicely."

Having already scored three statues at last weekend's Creative Arts Emmys, including a Guest Actress award for Uzo Aduba, Monday could be a golden evening for Orange.
