Thank you for Voting Portlandia!
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the Emmy® Award nominees this morning, with Portlandia, IFC’s original comedy series, being among the chosen few. The nominations include Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series (Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein, Jonathan Krisel, Bill Oakley) and Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series (Jonathan Krisel).
In response to the news, IFC president and general manager Jennifer Caserta stated: “When you’re lucky enough to work with talented people like Fred, Carrie and Jon good things tend to happen, and today is a perfect example of that.”
“We are honored by these nominations and so proud to be the home of Portlandia,” Caserta continued, “one of the most unique comedies on television and a show that has helped define and establish IFC’s comedic sensibility.”
Portlandia wrapped up its third season in March 2013, and has since been renewed for a fourth and fifth season, which will premiere on IFC in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
