The nomination makes history as Haas is the first Israeli TV actress nominated for a Golden Globe, one of the most prestigious honors in the industry. In the 4-part miniseries, Haas plays the main character Esther Shapiro, who escapes her tight-knit Hasidic community. The show is based on a 2012 memoir written by Deborah Feldman. The show is also nominated for best-limited series or TV movie, having skyrocketed to popularity by showing a glimpse into an often-unseen world.

Haas was also nominated for an Emmy, a Critics Choice Award, and Forbes 30 under 30. Her next project is “Esau” a remake of the Genesis story.

Haas posted on Instagram: “Words cannot describe my excitement. It’s an unbelievable honor to be on the same list with such incredible talent. Thank you for this nomination, thank you for all the love. Did I already say thank you?”
