Carrie Fisher is presenting the award of a lifetime to her very own mother.

In what is expected to be a beautiful mother-daughter moment, the Star Wars actress will present the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Award’s Lifetime Achievement Award to Debbie Reynolds.

Reynolds, 82, is being honored for a career that began in the 1950s. She has starred in more than 50 movies, two Broadway shows and two TV series. A few of her memorable film roles include Singin' in the Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown (for which she was Oscar nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role) and How the West Was Won.
