That's right - before the clock struck 8:00pm in New York City, where the 2018 Grammys ceremony was hosted, the victor of the Best Spoken Word Album award was announced... and it's Carrie Fisher.

Carrie Fisher was awarded her first Grammy on Sunday.

"The Princess Diarist" #CarrieFisher #GRAMMYs", tweeted The Recording Academy, which bestows the Grammys.

Three people dead after helicopter crash in California
The company's Eric Spitzer said he leased the 2003-model helicopter to John Wayne Airport-based Revolution Aviation. At least five people were injured after a helicopter crashed into a residential home in Newport Beach, Calif. .

Fisher died December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arest onboard a flight from London to Los Angeles. The late writer won for the audio recording 2016 book, The Princess Diarist, which detailed her experience with the first Star Wars movie in 1977. A talented wordsmith, Fisher has often written about her role as Leia Organa in the Star Wars universe and how it's affected her life.

The Princess Diarist is certainly a worthy victor, as it offered readers a characteristically humorous and blunt look into Fisher's life before and after Star Wars became a bona fide phenomenon.

"Princess Diarist was the last profesh (ish) thing my momby and I got to do together", the 25-year-old Scream Queens actress wrote in the caption. Her final film performance was in the latest Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Fisher's costar in the franchise Mark Hamill paid tribute to the iconic actress on the anniversary of her death.

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards is one for the books.
