Sharon Horgan is 'proud and messed up' over Carrie Fisher's Emmy Nomination

Her performance on Catastrophe did not go unnoticed

"I think the next hard thing was being in the edit [room] and watching her on screen yet no longer being with us", she said. This marks her third Primetime Emmy nomination.

The nomination is for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in the third season of 'Catastrophe', a British sitcom which aired in the United Kingdom earlier this year, and is available on Amazon in the US. She had recently wrapped filming her last episode of Catastrophe's recent season when she suffered the fatal heart attack. So, that's what we concentrated on: "making that episode a dedication to her, I guess, and beyond that, no, because it's hard watching her onscreen so alive and yet no longer with us".

This summer, results from Fisher's coroner's report stated that the "Star Wars" icon died from sleep apnea as the primary cause of death with drug intake as a contributing factor.

Other actresses nominated in the category alongside Fisher include Angela Bassett for Netflix's Master of None and Becky Ann Baker for Girls.
