Carrie Fisher Just Won Her First Grammy and Her Daughter Couldn't Be Prouder
Billie Lourd celebrated her late mother's posthumous win at the 2018 show.
Carrie Fisher took home her first-ever Grammy Award on Sunday for Best Spoken Word Album for the audiobook recording of her 2016 memoir, The Princess Diarist, according to CNN. She won the trophy posthumously after passing away in December 2016.
Shortly after the win, her daughter, Billie Lourd, headed to Instagram to open up about her late mom's win, first reported by Entertainment Weekly. "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," she wrote. "I’m beyond proud."
This year Fisher beat out Neil deGrasse Tyson, Shelly Peiken, Bruce Springsteen, Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo. She was previously nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for Wishful Thinking.
