Carrie Fisher Receives Emmy Nomination For Last Television Role Before Her Death

Congratulations to Carrie Fisher, who was nominated for an Emmy on Thursday morning for her final television role before she passed away.

The late actress, who died of a heart attack at the end of 2016, was nominated posthumously for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series for playing Rob Delaney’s mother in “Catastrophe,” an Amazon series.

Sharon Horgan, one of Fisher’s co-stars on “Catastrophe,” tweeted her support after the nomination was announced.

This is Fisher’s third Emmy nomination, and she’ll be (posthumously) facing off against Wanda Sykes, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Becky Ann Baker and Angela Bassett.
