In addition to That’s What She Said, Carrie has done more work behind the camera, directing, producing or executive-producing such films as 29th and Gay (2005) and Ready? OK! (2008).
That’s What She Said (2012), follows two best friends (Anne Heche and Marcia DeBonis), each with relationship problems, who embark on a New York City misadventure with a new acquaintance (Alia Shawkat). The film will be screened at the College Town Film Festival at the Athena Cinema on Oct. 5, followed by an audience Q&A with Preston.
Carrie sat down for an interview about the film and it’s upcoming showing, and below is a little piece of that interview where she describes her experience of attending the Emmy’s last weekend:
WOUB: Before we wrap up, I’d like to congratulate you on your recent Emmy Award. You’ve been to several of the ceremonies, but this was your first nomination, correct?
CP: This was my first Emmy nomination, yes. My husband Michael has been nominated five times, so I accompanied him to all of those ceremonies. But being a nominee felt diffferent, and of course I was more nervous heading into it. Luckily, I had watched him navigate those waters, so I was grateful for that. It was an amazing feeling to win the award, and I still can’t quite believe it.
WOUB: One last thing: I saw your tweet about having sandwiches confiscated at the event. What happened?

CP: The day of the Emmys is really full. It takes forever to get all dolled-up, then you get there quite early to do the red carpet. Since they don’t feed you at the Emmys, Michael and I started a tradition of bringing peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches to eat after the red carpet and before the ceremony. However, this year at the Creative Arts Emmys–where my category was presented–security confiscated our sandwiches! I’m still waiting to hear why anyone would think a sandwich would be a security threat…
