The Grammy marks her first posthumous win.

The late Carrie Fisher won her first Grammy award on Sunday night.

Among them was the late Carrie Fisher, who ended up the posthumous victor of her first Grammy.

Carrie Fisher just beat out Bernie Sanders, Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Springsteen, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Shelly Peiken to win a post-humous Grammy and no YOU'RE blubbing at your desk on a Monday morning. Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, honored her mother on Instagram, in emoji form-the way the frequent emoji-user Fisher would have preferred. The Disney-owned Lucasfilm made the rare foray into the world of “Star Wars” speculation Friday, Jan. 13, 2017 by issuing the statement denying any plans to digitize Fisher, who died December 27.

"Princess Diarist was the last profesh (ish) thing my momby and I got to do together", Lourd captioned a photo of her as a young kid in her mom's arms. "I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some freaky 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 took the award over Sen. In 2009 she was nominated in the same category for her memoir that became a one-woman-show, "Wishful Drinking".

"The Princess Diarist" made headlines thanks to Fisher's revelation that she had an affair with the married Harrison Ford after they met filming the original "Star Wars" in 1977.
