Just when we thought we were finally all cried out, J.J. Abrams spoke about Carrie Fisher at the Golden Globes, and we’re sobbing buckets over her tragic death — and the spectacular life she lived before it — all over again.

After the Globes aired its last-minute tribute to Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, who died one day after her daughter on December 28th, reporters were able to ask Fisher’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens director for his thoughts.

… And of course, Abrams had the exact same problem with it that we did: Much like her time on earth, it wasn’t long enough.

“I knew her actually since ’96,” Abrams continued. “Working with her, I got to know her better because it was as intense as it was. I feel truly blessed that I had the opportunity to work with her and be a friend.”

From Abrams to Tom Hiddleston to Meryl Streep, watching the Golden Globes made it abundantly clear that a whole lot of people felt blessed to call themselves Fisher’s friend. And as terrible as it still is to lose her, we’re glad they’re keeping her memory alive.
