Carrie Fisher Is Now a Grammy Winner

It’s now “Grammy Winner Carrie Fisher” to you. During a pre-ceremony on Sunday night, Fisher received a posthumous Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for her memoir The Princess Diarist, beating out the likes Bruce Springsteen, Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Shelly Peiken. It’s Fisher’s first-ever Grammy and second nomination in this category, now becoming her highest accolade, fittingly for a compilation diary entries written at the time filming the first Star Wars film. (She’d previously been nominated for three Emmys.) Fisher died in December 2016 days after suffering a heart attack.
