Carrie Fisher Wins Best Spoken Word Grammy

It seems our Princess is still making waves in the industry a year after her passing. Just another sad reminder that she is gone.

From Variety:

At Sunday’s Grammy Awards, Carrie Fisher was honored for best spoken word album for her book “The Princess Diarist.”

The 2016 memoir was inspired by the diary entries that Fisher wrote while working on the first “Star Wars” film in 1977. Released five weeks before her death on Dec. 27, 2016, Fisher’s fourth book revealed even more details from her past, including an onset affair with co-star Harrison Ford.

Also nominated in the Spoken Word category was Neil deGrasse Tyson, for “Astrophysics For People In A Hurry,” Bruce Springsteen for “Born to Run,” Shelly Peiken for “Confessions Of A Serial Songwriter,” and Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo for “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.”

This was Fisher’s second Grammy nomination and first win, following her nod for spoken word for her 2008 book “Wishful Drinking.” The actress died after she stopped breathing on a plane returning home to Los Angeles after finishing the European leg of her “The Princess Diarist” book tour.
