Elizabeth Smart said she just cant believe her latest achievement.

Smart posted a photo on Instagram that revealed she has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her work as a special correspondent on the Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen television program.

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences sent Smart a letter letting her know she was nominated for the outstanding special class series category.

Smart appeared in an interview for Crime Watch Daily in September in which she spoke about her 2002 abduction, according to the Deseret News.

I felt like it would be better to be dead than to continue living being a rape victim, being a rape survivor, Smart said. I felt in that moment if there had been an easy way out, I probably would have taken it.

The award nomination caps off a big year for Smart. She told her horrific story in the Lifetime movie I Am Elizabeth Smart, which aired in November, and was the subject of a two-part A&E documentary titled "Elizabeth Smart: Autobiography."
