It has been a great day for Orange Is the New Black, the hit Netflix prison drama which has just been nominated for 12 Emmy Awards. The most-nominated comedy series of the year, "OITNB" boasts an Outstanding Comedy Series nod, which it will have to try to wrestle off the four-year consecutive winner, Modern Family.
In the individual contests, actress Taylor Schilling cinched a nod for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of inmate Piper Chapman.
Kate Mulgrew (Red) secured a nomination in supporting categories, Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols), Uzo Aduba (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren) and Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset) were all also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.
The new season of the prison drama has seen a spike in illegal activity.
The second season of Orange Is The New Black debuted on Netflix last weekend, launching the next set of episodes of the female prison comedy-drama for all your binge-watching desires. However, as with all eagerly-anticipated new series, there has been an inevitable spike in the number of viewers watching the episodes illegally.
In the first two days of its release, "OITNB" season 2 episodes were illegally downloaded by 55,668 individuals over peer-to-peer networks in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia, the four biggest markets for piracy, according to piracy-tracking firm Excipio, via Variety.
The figure represents a tenfold rise from the 3,850 pirates who downloaded illegally during the first two days of the initial season last July. This is largely attributed to OITNB's snowballing success and increased buzz since season one as well as the show's constant accessibility to Netflix subscribers.

Piper Chapman is still in prison during her fifteen month stint following her conviction of transporting drug money for her ex-girlfriend Alex Vause ten years ago. She thought she had escaped her risky youth, but her one crime had finally caught up with her despite now living a perfectly ordinary, law-abiding life with a soon-to-be husband. Prison may be full of women, but it's not all good news. As expected, it's a volatile environment with much drama and much aggression. But with that comes unshakeable friendships, the genuine efforts of prison officials to help rebuild these women's lives and old faces all around. Piper is reunited with Alex, and the pair find themselves struggling to shake off that glimmering spark between them.
