Carrie Fisher simply gained her first-ever Grammy

29 January 2018

The Twitter page of the Recording Academy shared the news with the announcement, "Congrats Best Spoken Word Album - 'The Princess Diarist'". Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, honored her mother on Instagram, in emoji form-the way the frequent emoji-user Fisher would have preferred.

The album, based on her diaries kept around the time she starred in the first Star Wars film, beat competition from musician Bruce Springsteen and politician Bernie Sanders.

"I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some freakish floral ensemble", Lourd said, acknowledging the vintage photo, "but instead we'll celebrate in true Carrie style: in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca-Colas and warm e-cigs".

These include mixed reality learning applications, a special Chemistry Update for Minecraft and a new coding app called MakeCode. Past year at Bett, Microsoft announced Intune for Education , its device management and provisioning service for schools.

The Princess Diarist was published two weeks before Fisher's death on December 26, 2016.

The actor has been nominated for different awards after her death, including at the 2017 Emmy Awards when she was in contention for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series fro her role on the Amazon Original Series Catastrophe.

Aw! Billie Lourd is so proud of her mom, and she made that very clear by sharing a touching tribute, following Carrie Fisher's posthumous Grammy win. She had previously been nominated in 2009 for audiobook Wishful Drinking. Her posthumous 2018 win, though, is her first. But she also gave a lot of us hope for a world where women can be themselves, fully human and clearly complicated, and where we can erase the stigmas around mental health and addiction to help people get the help and support they need.
