Carrie Fisher gets posthumous Emmy nod

Consider it a sweet kiss goodbye: Carrie Fisher has been nominated for an Emmy Award, seven months after her unexpected death at 60.

The former "Star Wars" princess earned the nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy for her role as a funny but frustrating mom on the critically acclaimed Amazon comedy "Catastrophe."

Fisher's final appearance in the series was filmed just days before she stopped breathing on a flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23. She died four days later; her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died the next day while arranging her daughter's funeral.

The "Catastrophe" nod represents Fisher's third and final Emmy nomination. She was previously cited for her work on "Wishful Drinking," a one-woman stage show based on her bestselling 2008 memoir, which aired on HBO in 2010. In 2008, Fisher was nominated for a guest appearance as a former TV writer on Tina Fey's hit NBC comedy "30 Rock."
