Carrie Fisher, Chris Cornell and more nominated for posthumous GRAMMYs

Multiple 2018 GRAMMY nominees are no longer with us.

The latest GRAMMY nominees were announced on Tuesday morning, and a few nods were given to stars who have died, including Carrie Fisher, Chris Cornell and Leonard Cohen.

Fisher, who died in December 2016 after undergoing cardiac arrest, is nominated in the Best Spoken Word Album category for the audiobook recording of her 2016 memoir, The Princess Diarist. She was actually previously nominated for a GRAMMY in 2009, for her book Wishful Drinking.

As for Cornell, he's nominated for Best Rock Performance for his song, "The Promise," which was used in the 2016 film of the same name starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale. While the late singer previously won two GRAMMYs with his band Soundgarden, he had never won the prestigious award for his solo work. Cornell's death in May was ruled a suicide.
