'House of Cards' Gives Best Reaction to Emmy Loss

House of Cards may have lost for Outstanding Drama Series at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards but they win for best reaction to the snub.

Shortly after the Emmys ended, Netflix posted a video of Frank Underwood's chief of staff Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) making a phone call.

"We lost for best drama series. Get Jim from the Academy on the phone for me," he says. "Hi Jim, it's Doug Stamper. I thought we had a deal."

Despite House of Cards' connections, Breaking Bad still managed to take home the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series. The wildly popular Netflix show, starring Kevin Spacey as the conniving politician Frank Underwood, was nominated 13 times this year, beating their nine nominations in 2013. This year's nominations included Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor (Kevin Spacey), Lead Actress (Robin Wright), Guest Actor (Reg E. Cathey) and Guest Actress (Kate Mara).

House of Cards only took home one award at the Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series. They could have better luck next year as the show has been picked up for a third season.

In addition to House of Cards going home empty handed, there were a few more shockers at Monday night's Emmys. Check out who made history, below:
