American actress Carrie Fisher received posthumously on Sunday the award for Best Spoken Album for “The Princess Diarist”, more than a year after her brutal death at age 60.
The one who will forever remain the Princess Leia of the saga “Star Wars” has prevailed over Bruce Springsteen and his album “Born To Run”, reading his autobiography, and the former candidate for the American Democratic primary Bernie Sanders , who recorded with actor Mark Ruffalo a reading of his programmatic book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In”. In “The Princess Diarist” Carrie Fisher, known for her strong personality and humor, gave anecdotes about the shooting of the “Star Wars” saga. The album awarded Sunday is a recording of the actress reading the book.
Carrie Fisher died of a heart attack on December 27, 2016. She had already shot all her scenes from the eighth installment of “Star Wars”, “The Last Jedi”, released in December 2017 and in which she appears in the role of Leia, leader of the resistance.
