Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney had lovely reactions to Carrie Fisher's posthumous Emmy nomination

Sharon Horgan said she was “messed up and delighted” about Fisher’s nod.

THE  EMMY NOMINATIONS were announced this afternoon.

Saturday Night Live and Westworld lead the way with 22 nods apiece. Other shows to pick up multiple nominations include Stranger Things, Better Call Saul, Silicon Valley, Veep Big Little Lies, The Handmaid’s Tale and Master of None. (You can view the nominations in full here.)

One of the most bittersweet nominations came for the late, great Carrie Fisher who is nominated for Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Catastrophe.

This is Carrie Fisher’s third career nomination. She was previously nominated for her work on 30 Rock and for her comedy special Wishful Drinking.

The actress, who passed away in December after filming season three of the acclaimed comedy series, played Rob Delaney’s mother in the Channel 4 series.

Following news of her nomination, Delaney shared a link to an article announcing her nomination and wrote, “Mom.”

Sharon Horgan, meanwhile, wrote that she was “very happy and sad and proud and messed up and delighted” about Fisher’s nomination.

Elsewhere, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, a heartwarming documentary about the mother-daughter duo, earned two nominations.

Long live Carrie Fisher, eh?
