The Princess Diarist captured both those sides of Fisher, and so I'm really glad she took home the Grammy.
Billie Lourd, 25, took to Instagram on January 28 to congratulate her mom, the late Carrie Fisher, on her posthumous Grammy win on Sunday night. Looking over these diaries as an older woman, Fisher was astonished by their "youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized", and so she wrote The Princess Diarist to reflect on the journey between this past self and her present one.
Carrie is considered by many as playing an important role in discussing mental health and substance abuse issues, things which she struggled with throughout her life. Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, honored her mother on Instagram, in emoji form-the way the frequent emoji-user Fisher would have preferred.
Fisher won the award beating out Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bruce Springsteen, Shelly Peiken, Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo for their respective audiobook nominations.

McDonald to succeed Adams as Sinn Fein leader
The change represents a major shift for Sinn Fein , so closely associated with Adams' leadership, which started in November 1983. Mr Adams had earlier said that a united Ireland was not a pipe dream, adding: It is very achievable - we can do it.
Fisher, who made Princess Leia an iconic and beloved figure to millions of moviegoers died in 2016 at age 60.
"I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some weird 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". She also spoke to a then-pregnant Savannah Guthrie (whom she, in very Carrie fashion, told "congratulations on the sex") about having an affair during her first-ever film. She was previously given the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance in 2010 for her 2008 autobiographical humor book Wishful Drinking.
We can only dream about what her acceptance speech would've been like.
