Carrie's half-sister, Joely Fisher, spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner at the HBO Golden Globes after party, where she opened up about the emotional tribute and praised the late icons' "unparalleled and incomparable careers."
"[The Golden Globes] are honoring best of performances of the year, and the best in life," Joely said. "I'm proud, and sad, and feeling the same sort of chasm on the planet that everybody else is."
"I decided to make it out of my house today to [honor] my girls," she added. "I'm gonna go celebrate the ladies."
During the show, Meryl Streep also paid tribute
to the late Star Wars actress during her acceptance speech after being presented with the Cecil B. DeMille award, sharing some of her words of wisdom: "As my friend, the dear, departed Princess Leia, said to me once, 'Take your broken heart and make it into art.' Thank you."
"That's an incredible line, it's an incredible thought," Joely told ET, "I hope that we're all able to do that."
After the special In Memoriam segment aired, Carrie's brother, Todd Fisher, took to Twitter to share his appreciation.
"Thank you @goldenglobes for taking a moment and honoring my girls," Fisher tweeted.
