Mark Hamill And Billie Lourd Sweetly Celebrate Carrie Fisher's Grammy Win

Carrie Fisher was nominated for Emmys, BAFTAs, and Saturn Awards over her near 40-year acting career-but the late actress just won her first-ever Grammy Award posthumously at this year's pre-telecast ceremony.

She beat stiff competition from Bruce Springsteen, for his recording of his autobiography "Born To Run", as well as Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo's "Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In". The Grammy marks her first posthumous win.

This was the actress' second Grammy nomination; she was nominated in the same category in 2009 for her other memoir, "Wishful Drinking".

As we previously told you, Carrie, who's most famous for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, was flying from London to Los Angeles on December 23, 2016, when she went into cardiac arrest.

"I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some freakish floral ensemble", Lourd wrote, adding that she'd celebrate on Fisher's behalf "in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca Colas and warm e cigs". "I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some freaky 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".

"The Princess Diarist" made headlines thanks to Fisher's revelation that she had an affair with the married Harrison Ford after they met filming the original "Star Wars" in 1977.

While Princess Leia and "Star Wars" became iconic parts of United States film culture, Fisher received little critical recognition and was never nominated for an Oscar.
