We are so proud of Portlandia who beat out SNL, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report for the honor

Something amazing happened at the Writers’ Guild Awards last night: Portlandia won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Writing Comedy/Variety (Including Talk) – Series! We are so proud of the show whose victory was deemed “the night’s biggest upset” by TVLine for winning over such incredible and incredibly funny shows as Saturday Night Live, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, who have had a well-deserved lock on the category for the last six years.

Portlandia’s star, creator and writer Fred Armisen picked up the award for his fellow writers, including Carrie Brownstein, Jonathan Krisel, Bill Oakley and Karey Dornetto. No word on whether he put a bird on it. Congratulations! We are so proud of Portlandia.
