Carrie Fisher Scores Second Grammy Nomination


Late actress Carrie Fisher has landed her second Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album.

The Star Wars icon, who passed away last December (16), has been nominated posthumously for the audiobook recording of her memoir, The Princess Diarist.

If she wins at next year’s (18) ceremony, it will be Carrie’s first Grammy.

She previously earned a nomination for the audiobook version of her 2009 release, Wishful Thinking.

Carrie was heading home to Los Angeles for Christmas after promoting The Princess Diarist in the U.K. when she suffered a massive cardiac arrest and died days later.

Carrie isn’t the only star being posthumously nominated at this year’s Grammy Awards – late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s The Promise has also been nominated for Best Rock Performance. Chris wrote and recorded the track for a 2016 Oscar Isaac movie of the same name.

Like Fisher, if Cornell wins, it will be his first Grammy as a soloist.
