2016 ended with devastating news after the untimely deaths of two Hollywood legends, mother-daughter duo Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. Airing during the 2017 Golden Globes, the biggest names in Hollywood paid their respects to two of the finest actresses the world has seen.
The 46-second clip features touching moments exchanged between Reynolds and Fisher intertwined with some their biggest on screen moments was set to the tune of Judy Garland’s “You Made Me Love You,” which the two of them famously sang together back in 2011.
The Golden Globes broke their historical “no-memorial segment” rule to pay their respects to Fisher and Reynolds who both passed away late December, a day apart from another. They were recently laid to rest next to each other.
“This past year, we lost so many legends and icons,” introduced the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon. “But a few weeks ago, we lost a mother and a daughter within just a couple of days and it was a terrible loss that we all felt.”
Stricken with emotion, Reynolds’ son and brother to Fisher, Todd Fisher, tweeted a thank you photo to the Golden Globes for honoring “my girls,” featuring a photo of the all of them together including Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd.

Stars also paid their respects during the award show, including actress Meryl Streep who shared something her good friend “Pricess Leia” once told her, “Take your broken heart and make it into art.”
