Late Carrie Fisher wins Grammy Award for memoir recording

The Grammy was awarded for her audio recording of her memoir based on diaries she kept around the time she starred in the first "Star Wars."

Carrie Fisher is now a Grammy winner.

The actress/writer, who died in December 2016 at age 60, picked up the award for best spoken word album for audiobook The Princess Diarist, beating out the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Bernie Sanders, Bruce Springsteen and Neil deGrasse Tyson in the category.

Her daughter, actress Billie Lourd, commemorated the win with an emotional post on Instagram, featuring a childhood photo of them together and the memoir's book jacket.

"Princess Diarist was the last profesh(ish) thing my momby and I got to do together," Lourd wrote. "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. I’m beyond proud."

Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill also congratulated his "space sis" on Twitter, using the hashtags #AlwaysAWinner and #CarrieOnForever.

Fisher released Princess Diarist in 2016, which contained the bombshell revelation that she had an affair with Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford. She had previously been nominated in 2009 for audiobook Wishful Drinking.
