Three time Emmy® Award winner Edie Falco has been nominated for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series” for her portrayal of Jackie Peyton in Nurse Jackie. Commenting on her nomination, Falco said:

“Working on NJ has been a joy from the get-go. I'm beyond thrilled that people are enjoying it and noticing it as well. It's an embarrassment of riches”.

Returning to TV3 on Tuesday 13 July at 9.30pm, other nominations for Nurse Jackie include “Outstanding Comedy Series” and “Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series”.

The Office and How I Met Your Mother also received nominations and will be returning to C4 shortly. Coming soon to TV3 is season 7 of Project Runway which is up for two awards including “Outstanding Reality – Competition Programme”
