Carrie Fisher has been nominated for a posthumous Grammy Award in the spoken word category.
The actor died after suffering a cardiac arrest last year at the age of 60.
She will appear on screen for a final time this December in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, reprising her role as Princess Leia for the final time.
The nomination is for her spoken word reading of autobiography The Princess Diarist.
The recording features passages of Fisher's 1970's diaries read by her daughter Billie Lourde also.
These excerpts caused the most controversy upon the book's release, as they concern her long-rumoured romantic relationship with Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford.
Fisher will face competition from fellow category nominees Bernie Sanders, Mark Ruffalo, Bruce Springsteen, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Shelly Peiken.
In addition to this Grammy nomination, Fisher also received a posthumous Emmy nomination earlier this year for her guest role on the Amazon comedy Catastrophe.
