Carrie Fisher Just Won Her First Posthumous Grammy And Everyone’s Emotional Over It

Carrie Fisher has been gone for over a year now, and deep down in their souls, everyone misses her. As if it wasn’t hard enough to watch the latest Star Wars film in theaters, Fisher’s last Star Wars ever made, she’s still finding ways to own the spotlight and win big at award shows.

At the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday, Carrie Fisher won her very first Grammy Award (from the grave, y’all), for “Best Spoken Word Album” for the audiobook of her memoir “The Princess Diarist.” It’s pretty impressive, not only because it’s her very first Grammy and she received it after death, but she went up against some big names for the award: Bruce Springsteen, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, took to Instagram to share her pride and joy hearing her mother had won this prestigious award.

Fans of Fisher also took to Twitter sharing their thoughts and, many, many emotions.
