Girls immediately positioned itself as a comedy contender in its debut season not just with viewers but with critics as well.
The series, which follows a group of twenty-something girls led by Lena Dunham's "Hannah Horvath," immediately got on well with the Academy and earned five nominations for its first season.
Among that handful of nominations were considerations for the coveted Outstanding Comedy Series award and Outstanding Lead Actress for Dunham.
Although it didn't win those prestigious awards, Girls was handed a nod of approval from the Academy last year with its first-ever Emmy win for Outstanding Casting.
