Watch the emotional Golden Globes tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

"This past year we lost so many legends and icons," host Jimmy Fallon said. "But a few weeks ago we lost a mother and a daughter within just a couple of days."

The Golden Globes took a break from celebrating the best of 2016’s film and television to air a short but emotionally powerful tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, the mother-daughter screen legends who passed away on consecutive days at the end of December at ages 60 and 84, respectively.

“This past year we lost so many legends and icons, but a few weeks ago we lost a mother and a daughter within just a couple of days,” host Jimmy Fallon said during the Sunday telecast. “And it was a terrible loss that we all felt.”

The short montage featured clips of some of the actresses’ most famous roles — including Fisher as Princess Leia in Star Wars and Reynolds as Kathy Selden in Singin’ in the Rain — as well as footage from the HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, which premiered on the premium cable network on January 7.
