Golden Globes air heartfelt tribute to Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds

Golden Globes air heartfelt tribute to Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds

During Friday's funeral for Fisher's mother, Debbie Reynolds, Fisher's brother Todd was spotted holding a porcelain urn that appeared to be a giant Prozac pill, which, to the delight of Fisher's fans, is exactly what it was. Fisher, who had suffered a medical emergency on December 23 on a flight from London, died on December 27 at the age of 60. In an even crueler twist, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died just a day later at the age of 84. Lourd is barely in Bright Lights but she can be briefly seen accompanying her mother and grandmother to the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2015 and, early in the documentary, helping Reynolds off the stage after a performance. And on Saturday, HBO is set to air their documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds(8 ET/PT).

Insiders revealed the public memorial will also feature some of Debbie and Carrie's most famous movie costumes, including outfits from "Singin" in the Rain" and "Star Wars', on display. They began by filming Reynolds' stage act.

It's possible that Fisher's heart may have been damaged during the period she used drugs such as cocaine to self-medicate before accepting her bipolar disorder diagnosis.

The backing track of the montage is a performance of Reynolds singing You Made Me Love You to Fisher.

NY Times app pulled by Apple in China after government request
Since 2008, app makers have received $60 billion from Apple , which means that they received a third of it only thanks to 2016. In a statement to Vocativ, the Times' spokeswoman Eileen Murphy called Apple's decision to pull its app "deeply regrettable".

Reynolds, three-times divorced, weathered cheating men and swindlers who bilked her for millions.

Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd and boyfriend Taylor Lautner were among those who came to pay their last respects to the actresses.

"Manic-depressive is a disease", Reynolds said. Fisher, exhausted by her own manic episode, tells the camera "I just want to get to the end of my personality and just lay in the sun". Fisher's ambivalent relationship with Princess Leia ("I'm her custodian", she explains to the camera while taking a post-Comic-Con smoke break) is very different from Reynolds's insistence on staying in show business as long as she physically could. Honestly, it is so fitting and so fantastic to see a woman who struggled most her life having such a sense of humor about herself.

"They were such larger than life characters and they lived this incredibly big Hollywood story".
