Carrie Fisher may have passed away a year ago, but she isn’t leaving our thoughts anytime soon.
After giving her feistiest, and honestly, “most Carrie Fisher-esque,” performance as Leia in Star Wars: The Last Jedi last month, we still have not heard the last of everyone’s favorite Princess.
Variety reports that last night, at the Grammy Awards, Fisher won for best spoken world album for her most recent book The Princess Diarist. It was her second Grammy nomination and first win, as she was also nominated for spoken word for her 2008 book Wishful Drinking.
The 2016 memoir was inspired by the diary entries Fisher wrote on the set of Star Wars in 1977. It was released five weeks before her death on December 27, 2016. The book is most famous for — aside from Fisher’s classic feisty attitude — covering an onset affair she had with Harrison Ford.
The losers? Also nominated in the Spoken Word category were Neil deGrasse Tyson for Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Bruce Springsteen for Born to Run, Shelly Peiken for Confessions of a Serial Songwriters, and Bernie Sanders and Mark Rufallo for Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.
We will never forget you, Carrie Fisher! It is a shame Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill didn’t have the chance to drape a medal over her neck as she did for them 40 years ago (in a fictional movie… but still).
