Fisher, best known as Princess Leia from the Star Wars series of movies, was given the honor on May 4, known as Star Wars Day for the date’s similarity to one of the series’ catch phrases, “may the Force be with you.”

Fisher also had memorable film roles in When Harry Met Sally and The Blues Brothers and was nominated for Emmys for a guest appearances on 30 Rock and Catastrophe and for her own one-woman show, Wishful Drinking. The latter was based on her book of the same name, one of several novels and memoirs she authored.
