Fans of Netflix's popular comedy-drama Orange is the New Black were probably disappointed by Monday night's Primetime Emmy Awards.

Orange is the New Black was nominated for several big Emmys Monday night but they ultimately went home empty-handed. Many had predicted that the show might take home the Best Comedy Series trophy but ABC's juggernaut Modern Family won for the fifth year in a row, tying Frasier's record for most Comedy Series trophies in Emmy history.

Similarly, star Taylor Schilling (who plays Piper Chapman) did not win Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Instead the trophy went to Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep for the third year in a row.

Kate Mulgrew (Red) lost the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series to Allison Janney in freshman series Mom on CBS.

Jodie Foster, who many considered to be a lock to win Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the episode Lesbian Request Denied, also lost. Like Comedy Series, the award went to Modern Family director Gail Mancuso.

Finally, Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series was won by Louis C.K. for Louie. Jenji Kohan and Liz Friedman had been nominated for Orange is the New Black for the pilot episode, I Wasn't Ready.

Regardless, the cast of Orange is the New Black partied into the night after the ceremony was over, as seen on Twitter.

Orange is the New Black is currently streaming its first two seasons on Netflix, with a third season on the way for Summer 2015.
