Among them was the late Carrie Fisher, who ended up the posthumous victor of her first Grammy. Isn't that incredible? We're so happy that Carrie Fisher is once again being recognized for all the hard work she did throughout her career, and Billie seems to feel the exact same way.

Fisher, who made Princess Leia an iconic and beloved figure to millions of moviegoers died in 2016 at age 60. She starred in December's The Last Jedi (and wrote some of the blockbuster's best scenes), now just over a month later, she's posthumously won the award for Best Spoken Word Album for her memoir The Princess Diarist.

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

Daughter Billie Lourd took to social media to congratulate her "momby".

"I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some freaky floral ensemble", Lourd wrote, adding that she'd celebrate on Fisher's behalf "in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca Colas and warm e cigs". Though this memoir earned Fisher her first-ever Grammy Award, this wasn't her first nomination: She was previously nominated back in 2009 in the same category for her book-turned-one-woman-play Wishful Drinking. "I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some weird 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".

Fisher's long time Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill also celebrated the win on Twitter.
