Carrie Fisher receives posthumous Emmy nomination for Catastrophe

Carrie Fisher receives posthumous Emmy nomination for Catastrophe

Carrie Fisher is still managing to surprise us even after her death. I couldn't stop thinking about her family, who lost Fisher and her mother Debbie within days of each other. The late actress was posthumously nominated for an Emmy for her guest role in Catastrophe. In 2008, she was nominated in the guest actress in a comedy series category for her appearance on "30 Rock". Late previous year, Fisher suffered a massive heart attack while on a flight returning home to Los Angeles from London, where she had been filming episodes of the Amazon comedy series.

Following the announcement, Horgan tweeted: "Very happy and sad and proud and messed up and delighted about our friend Carrie Fisher's nomination". The pair were recently the subject of HBO documentary Bright Lights, detailing their colourful and loving relationship, which also earned an Emmy nomination for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking.

Fisher played Mia, mother to Rob Delaney's character, Rob, in the sitcom, which airs in the United Kingdom on Channel 4 and on Amazon Prime.

After the nominations were announced, Horgan shared her complicated feelings regarding the news on Twitter.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards take place in September. Every season of Catastrophe is available to stream on Amazon Prime right now.
