The world mourned when Carrie Fisher passed in 2016, but more than a year after her death, she still continues to make her mark on the world. The Grammy Awards have just awarded Fisher for the category of Best Spoken World Album
Fisher received the award for recording the audio for her book, The Princess Diarist, a memoir in which she details events from her Leia days—most particularly her affair with a one Harrison Ford (who was married with children at the time). It’s also worth mentioning that Fisher was also nominated for the same award back in 2009 with her book Wishful Drinking.
Though a lot of people may love Fisher for her work onscreen, most of her skills rely on her work behind the screen; what with Fisher being an accomplished writer and script doctor for Hollywood. Watch her promote the release of The Princess Diarist here:
Other nominees for the award included Shelly Peiken for Confessions of a Serial Songwriter, Neil deGrasse Tyson for Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Bruce Springsteen for Born to Run, and Bernie Sander and Mark Ruffalo for Our Revolution: A Future to Believe in.
I’m still kind of dumbfounded that Fisher would win awards long after her death. I’m curious if she has a surprise in store for us in Star Wars Episode IX.
