Jimmy Fallon and Meryl Streep Pay Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds at Golden Globes
The mother and daughter were laid to rest Friday.
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds were honored Sunday night at the Golden Globes with a touching tribute to the mother and daughter who died within a day of each other.
"This past year we lost so many legends and icons, but a few weeks ago we lost a mother and a daughter within just a couple of days," host Jimmy Fallon said during the Sunday telecast. "And it was a terrible loss that we all felt."
The touching memorial featured iconic scenes from their acting careers along with home movie clips.
Meryl Streep honored her late friend as she concluded her acceptance speech after receiving the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Globes.
“We should all be very proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, 'Take your broken heart and make it into art.' Thank you, friend,” Streep said.
Streep starred in the film adaptation of Fisher's acclaimed book, Postcards From the Edge, which was loosely based on her life.
Reynolds and Fisher were laid to rest Friday at a private ceremony in Los Angeles. Their hearses arriving at Forest Lawn Cemetery under police escort.

Todd Fisher held his sister's ashes in an urn fashioned after a Prozac pill reflecting the Star Wars actress’ irreverent sense of humor.
The mother and daughter were buried near screen icon Bette Davis.
"We had a beautiful service and everybody is settled as we can be," Todd Fisher told Inside Edition after the service. "We have so much of them that was left behind, all of my sister's [words] and the movies and all the things that they created and that's what we need to remember.”
Fisher, 60, passed away on December 27 after having a heart attack aboard an airplane December 23. Her mother, 84, passed away the following day after a reported stroke.
