Tune into the 2012 Spirit Awards on Saturday


Posted by on

We’re know you’ve already marked your calendars for the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards airing this Saturday at 10/9c on IFC. You have your party planned and, who knows, a drinking game mapped out (drink whenever “The Artist” wins?) and that you’re planning on live-chatting on IFC Sync, but we’re going to remind you anyway. We’re like your mom or the automatic iCal alert of super helpful websites that you love.

First on the agenda: Tune in this Saturday at 10/9c. The 27th annual Spirit Awards will be held as a daytime luncheon in a tent on the beach in Santa Monica on Saturday, and the premiere broadcast will air later that evening at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on IFC. The event will be hosted by Seth Rogen, the star of “Knocked Up,” “Pineapple Express,” “Superbad,” and, of course, “Freaks and Geeks.” While Rogen admitted that he hasn’t asked many people for advice regarding his hosting duties, the one person he did talk to was Judd Apatow. In an interview right here on this very site, Rogen clued us in on Judd’s advice. “Judd said just try to be yourself and try not to be mean. That’s not my thing. That wouldn’t work very well,” Rogen said. “My feelings get hurt easily so I wouldn’t want to do that to people.” So tune into the Spirit Awards to see if he sticks to that advice or just has to slip in one little dig at, say, Jonah Hill.

This year’s Spirit Award nominees include the apocalyptic drama “Take Shelter” and the black-and-white silent film “The Artist” as top contenders, earning five nominations each. For some backstory on the films, Matt Singer documented the journey to the Spirit Awards. Speaking of Matt Singer, you’re having a Spirit Awards viewing party, right? Great, we’ll bring the guacamole or at least the live chatting platform. That’s right, you and all your friends (even the weird ones you only know via Facebook) can all join the IFC live chat. It’s a party online, where not only can you talk with your mouth full and no one will be offended, but it’s hosted by comedian Chris Gethard, who is professionally hilarious, and IFC’s resident film expert Matt Singer. We’ll see you there!

Watch Seth Rogen host the 2012 Spirit Awards on Saturday, February 25 at 10/9c on IFC. And while you’re tuning in, don’t forget to log into chat with our movie experts LIVE via IFC Sync, presented by Capital One.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
