The actress, along with her mother, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, who died the day after Fisher, was also the subject of Bright Lights, which received a pair of Emmy nominations as well: one for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking, and the other for Outstanding Directing for a Nonfiction Program.
