After More Than One Year Since Her Demise, Carrie Fisher Gets Her First Grammy Award

Date January 30, 2018 15:15

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards was filled with incredible performances and unexpected but well-deserved wins. The pre-show ceremony gave awards to some of the biggest stars in the industry. One of them was Carrie Fisher, famous for her role of Princess Leia in Star Wars franchise. She received a posthumous award, which was the first Grammy in her career.

Carrie received an award for the audio version of her 2016 memoir called The Princess Diarist. She beat big starts, including Mark Ruffalo and Bruce Springsteen.

The audiobook includes Fisher’s diaries that she made during the time when A New Hope was filmed. It is the last work of the actress, who died from a heart attack in December 2016 when she was 60.

Mark Hamill, her costar, was one of the first people who congratulated the late actress.

Billie Lourd, Fisher’s daughter, left a touching message on Instagram about her mom’s last project.

Princess Diarist was the last profesh(ish) thing my momby and I got to do together. I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some bizarre floral ensemble but instead we’ll celebrate in true Carrie style: in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca Colas and warm e cigs. I’m beyond proud.

The young actress worked closely with her mom in the last few years. She joined the cast of the new Star Wars trilogy, playing alongside with Fisher.

There’s no word yet whether Billie will return for the new episode of the franchise or not, but we hope she won’t stay behind.

Mark Hamill paid tribute to the actress on the anniversary of her death.

He openly spoke how hard it was for him to cope with her passing.

Carrie Fisher will always be on the mind of those who loved her, and her legacy will keep her in the hearts of those who admired her.
