Israeli actress Shira Haas nominated for Golden Globe

The up and coming Israeli actress Shira Haas has been nominated for a Golden Globe award for her role in Netflix’s series “Unorthodox” about a young woman who wants to leave her ultra-Orthodox community in New York to start a new life.

Haas is the first Israeli actress ever to be nominated for a Golden Globe. She was nominated for best actress in a limited series, anthology series, or motion picture made for television, the Golden Globes announced on Wednesday.

She is up against Cate Blanchett for “Mrs. America,” Anya Taylor-Joy for “The Queen’s Gambit,” Nicole Kidman for “The Undoing,” and Daisy Edgar-Jones for “Normal People.”

Unorthodox was a mini-series based on the 2012 memoir “Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots,” by Deborah Feldman.

“Unorthodox” was also nominated for best limited series or TV movie. And Haas was previously nominated for an Emmy for the performance.

“I’m very, very excited. I wanted to say thank you to all the supporters and fans. I’m still taking it in,” she said after the nomination.

Haas, 25, was already famous in Israel for her role in “Shtisel” in which she played an ultra-Orthodox character.
