The Princess and The Amazon Series
While many will assume that Fisher’s final project was her work on Star Wars XIII: The Last Jedi, they would be wrong. Fisher also guest-starred on the Amazon series Catastrophe. She had already guest-starred in five other episodes of the series as Rob Delaney’s mother Mia. Co-star and co-creator Sharon Horgan posted, “Very happy and sad and proud and messed up and delighted about our friend Carrie Fisher’s nomination.” Delaney also posted a response to the nomination, simply tweeting out the word “mom”.

Multiple noms for Carrie Fisher
Catastrophe is not Fisher’s only posthumous nomination. The documentary Bright Lights, which shows the inner workings of the relationship between Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, is also up for an award. Reynolds passed away just a day after Fisher last December.
Catastrophe is available for streaming on Amazon Prime. The show stars Rob Delaney (Rob), and Sharon Horgan (Sharon). The show is now in its third season.
