Billie Lourd Reacts to Mother Carrie Fisher's Posthumous GRAMMY Win

The late Carrie Fisher won a Grammy Award Sunday for best spoken-word album, honoring her book, "The Princess Diarist". "I'm beyond proud. @RecordingAcademy", Billie captioned a throwback photo of herself on a red carpet with her mother and a pic of Carrie's memoir.

Fisher's daughter, actress Billie Lourd, also shared her happiness over her mother's posthumous win, calling The Princess Diarist the last professional project the two worked on together. "I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some weird 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".

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. Looking over these diaries as an older woman, Fisher was astonished by their "youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized", and so she wrote The Princess Diarist to reflect on the journey between this past self and her present one.

Fisher died December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arest onboard a flight from London to Los Angeles.

A little more than a year after her death, Carrie Fisher has won her first Grammy Awards.

The Grammys' Best Spoken Word category covers poetry, audio books, and storytelling, while audio comedy recordings compete in their own separate category. Her posthumous 2018 win, though, is her first.
