Billie Lourd and Carrie Fisher attend the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' 7th Annual Governors Awards at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on November 14, 2015 in Hollywood, California. At the premiere ceremony at Sunday's Grammy Awards, she received the award for best spoken word album for The Princess Diarist. After her death in December 2016, the world was shaken to its core - but luckily, we've been able to remember this iconic actress in some of the best ways possible. She was best known for her work in five "Star Wars" blockbusters and the romantic comedy "When Harry Met Sally". As I wrote back when she was first nominated, this recording of The Princess Diarist represents her words, in her voice.
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.
In November of 2016, Carrie released a collection of journal entries that she wrote during the filming of 1977's Star Wars, the original movie to kick off the tremendously successful franchise, a series which has had a significant influence on popular culture. Her life was also marked by struggles with depression and addiction. Adding a message for her tragic mum, she added, "I love you times infinity".
The Grammy Awards 2018 air live on CBS on Sunday, January 28, at 7:30 p.m. ET.
