Carrie Fisher nominated for Emmy for Catastrophe

Carrie Fisher nominated for Emmy for Catastrophe

The princess of our childhoods - whether in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy or just giving solid advice on a houseboat in 'Drop Dead Fred' - and the badass General of 'The Force Awakens' and 'The Last Jedi', Carrie Fisher, has scored a posthumous Emmy nom. The late actress was posthumously nominated for an Emmy for her guest role in Catastrophe. Its first two seasons were shown here on the ABC. Fisher played the mother to Delaney's character, completing filming on the show mere days before she suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.

It's the only Emmy nod for the 'Catastrophe', which past year scored a writing nom for its first season. It was for her role as Mia, the tormenting mum of Rob (Rob Delaney) in the Amazon series, "Catastrophe". (Her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, tragically died soon after.) Fisher was still very much involved in acting, between the #StarWars films and her recurring role on #Catastrophe.
