  Todd Fisher shares touching drawing of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds Todd Fisher has drawn a beautiful picture of his sister Carrie Fisher and mother Debbie Reynolds' by Ricky LaChance and dressed as their most famous characters and walking into the light together.The mother and daughter - who died within a day of each other earlier this week - are seen with their arms wrapped around one another walking into the light, in a touching drawing posted online by Debbie's surviving son.

The Globes set aside its custom of not doing "in memoriam" segments to salute Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Every year, the Golden Globe Awards honor multi-generational Hollywood families by naming a daughter from an entertainment family as Miss Golden Globes .

I laughed with Project Runaway alum Blake Patterson. Shared a quiet moment of reflection with Joely Fisher (who was both “proud and sad” that the Golden Globes broke tradition and honored the passing of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher).

Every year, the Golden Globe Awards honor multi-generational Hollywood families by naming a daughter from an entertainment family as Miss Golden Globes.

And while Carrie Fisher was never named Miss Golden Globes (though half-sister Joely Fisher was in 1992), she and her mother were a great example of Hollywood families, so it made sense that the show would break its "no-memorial-segment" rule to honor Fisher and Reynolds, who died a day apart and were buried together Friday.

Fisher's brother Todd thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for the gesture shortly after the montage of their best-known roles, set to Reynolds' song Tammy as well as the classic You Made Me Love You.

The montage came one day after HBO premiered its documentary Bright Lights Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, a touching, funny look at their mother-daughter bond. (If you haven't watched it yet, restock your tissue supply.)

Later in the show, Cecil B. DeMille honoree Meryl Streep paid tribute to Fisher, who wrote her 1990 film Postcards From the Edge.

She closed out her speech with advice she'd once gotten from the Star Wars icon: "As my friend Princes Leia told me, 'Take your broken heart, make it into art.'"

And when Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston was backstage talking to reporters after winning best-supporting actor in a TV movie or miniseries, he also took a moment to talk about Fisher.

“Carrie Fisher was such a fighter," he said. "And I spent an evening with her last summer at the White House Correspondents dinner as a guest of the Guardian newspaper. She had this indomitable spirit. She was such a  force for life. If you could take a lesson from her it was to live as fully, and to embrace our weaknesses, and that very act makes them become strengths. And she was so funny.”

Star Wars rules out using CGI to recreate Carrie Fisher for films .
The producers behind Star Wars say they will not digitally recreate the late Carrie Fisher's likeness in future episodes of the film franchise. In July, "Star Wars: Episode VIII" wrapped up shooting with Fisher reprising her role as the character initially known as Princess Leia she first performed in the first installment of the franchise released in 1977.
