The nomination comes on a pretty special day - yesterday being July 13 - the 75th birthday of Harrison Ford, who she a year ago copped to having a stoner affair with during the filming of ' A New Hope' back in 1977, when she was 21 and he was 34. Three seasons of the programme have been made so far with fans hoping for a fourth season.

Fisher is nominated in the guest comedy actress category, alongside Wanda Sykes for ABC's "Black-ish", Angela Bassett for Netflix's "Master of None", Becky Ann Baker for HBO's "Girls", and "Saturday Night Live" guest hosts Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. She may have had hit some bumps in the road but her legacy is one to be admired, and an Emmy Award for her final performance would be a very meaningful addition to her memory as her family and friends try to find solace in the wake of her loss.
