Even after her death, Joan Rivers is still receiving accolades.
The late comedian, who died Sept. 4 at the age of 81, won a posthumous Grammy award for her spoken word album “Diary of a Mad Diva,” it was announced during the pre-telecast awards on Sunday.
The album, which contains narration of her 12th book, marks Rivers’ first Grammy win. She was nominated for the comedy Grammy in 1984 for “What Becomes a Semi-Legend Most?”
The other nominees in the category were Jimmy Carter’s “A Call to Action,” James Franco’s “Actors Anonymous,” Elizabeth Warren’s “A Fighting Chance,” John Waters’ “Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America,” and Gloria Gaynor’s “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration and the Power of Song.”
