The late Carrie Fisher is honored with a Grammy Award. On Sunday, at the 60th annual ceremony in New York, Carrie posthumously won the prize for best spoken word album for her The Princess Diarist audiobook recording.
The Princess Diarist is a memoir culled from her diaries during her time shooting the first Star Wars movie and portraying Princess Leia.
Carrie Fisher Awarded Posthumous Grammy For Best Spoken Word Album
Just five weeks before her death in December 2016, the memoir was published that made headlines for the details it revealed, including an on-set relationship with co-star Harrison Ford.
Carrie was returning from a European leg of a book tour for the memoir before suffering a heart attack on a flight home to Los Angeles. She died days later.
Carrie was previously nominated for a Grammy Award in the same category in 2009, for her recording of her memoir-turned-one-woman-show Wishful Drinking, but did not win.
