Barr’s racist tweet and the almost immediate axing of her show put hundreds of people out of work. (Adam Rose/ABC via AP) The chances of Roseanne Barr winning an Emmy this year or even getting a nomination are slim, but the racist-tweeting star of ABC’s canceled sitcom Roseanne is still on the ballot.

Turns out that producers Carsey-Werner submitted Barr’s name for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category in early May. The submission came weeks before the TV Academy deadline and before the online tirade by Barr that led to the implosion of the much-watched revival.

That submission also saw fellow cast members such as John Goodman, recent Tony winner and Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert put into contention. Deadline’s sister site Gold Derby first reported the submissions.

While networks submit specific series to the TV Academy for Emmy consideration, it is the actors themselves or producers who under the protocol of the organization put individual or ensemble names into the nomination ring.

A past Emmy winner for her Roseanne Conner role back in the early 1990s, Barr seemed like a shoe-in for a nomination and perhaps even another victory before she took to Twitter on May 29 in a vicious attack on Valerie Jarrett. The comedian called the former Barack Obama advisor an offspring of “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.”

Born on November 3, 1952, in Salt Lake City, Utah, Roseanne Barr started in stand-up comedy before starring in her own hit ABC sitcom , Roseanne , which initially ran for nine seasons and was pioneering in its break from traditional family show formats.

ABC announced on Tuesday that it would cancel the hit sitcom " Roseanne " following "abhorrent" comments from the show's star, Roseanne Barr , who had compared former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

Chastised as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values,” Trump supporter Barr and her ratings bonanza show were pink-slipped by ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey within hours of the tweet. Just weeks before, Dungey and other execs at the Disney-owned net had been on a Roseanne high at the network’s upfront presentation in NYC, boosting about having the No. 1 show on the small screen. Soon after canceling Roseanne, ABC also pulled the plug on the extensive FYC campaign the series was rolling out, though a few ads still made it to print.

In the fallout, Barr went through stages of apologizing, lashing out, trying to explain, and then back through the various stages all over again. As recently as June 5, Barr retweeted a comment accusing Jarrett of wanting “Israelis and Jews chased into the sea.” Additionally, she called billionaire philanthropist George Soros a “nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth.” A complete fabrication for which she apologized on June 11:

Roseanne Spinoff Inches Closer to Reality, but 'There Are Still Issues to Hash Out,' Source Says .
Negotiations for a Roseanne spinoff are in full swing. Almost a month after star Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet prompted the cancellation of her show, a source tells PEOPLE that”some important progress has been made in discussions about a reboot revolving more around Darlene’s character,” played by Sara Gilbert. Nevertheless, the source says “there are still issues to hash out.” “The key has been how a show can be done where Roseanne neither participates nor profits,” says the source. “As of now, she has agreed, at least in theory, to forego any creative or financial involvement in the spinoff to help save the cast and crew jobs.” ABC canceled the hit reboot in May after Barr likened former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an “ape” in a tweet she later deleted.
