Farrah Fawcett received her fourth Emmy nomination Thursday, almost a month after her death.
The actress was nominated posthumously for Farrah’s Story, an NBC special that followed her 3 year battle with cancer.
Fawcett, 62, has been nominated three other times for her roles in The Burning Bed (1984), Small Sacrifices (1989) and The Guardian (2004.)
Fawcett died January 25. In a statement on Thursday, the actress’s longtime partner Ryan O’Neal thanked the Television Academy for the nomination.
“For the Television Academy to recognize Farrah’s Story with this nomination is such a wonderful acknowledgement for Farrah and her legacy. I know that she is smiling that fabulous smile right now in heaven, and that she is grateful that the show has been so well received not only by her peers in the industry but by the public at large,” O’Neal said.
