Live Poll: Best Carrie Fisher Scene Stealing Performance

Carrie Fisher is best known for playing Princess Leia Organa* in the 'Star Wars' saga and will appear in the final two installments of the current trilogy. But, her legacy extends beyond a single role with over a hundred acting credits spanning a 40 year career. Fisher was a NY Times best-selling author, screenwriter and noted script doctor. She embraced the "no small parts" mantra with regular TV guest star appearances, supporting actress movie roles and cameos. Fisher balanced her acting and writing careers and was well known for her humorous scene stealing performances.

Which Carrie Fisher movie or television role other than Princess Leia is her best scene-stealing performance?

*Star Wars, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX

it would be easy to say 'wishful drinking' considering it was her one-woman broadway show...which was wonderful...but...

if you want an addition to the list, check out her role as ellen tenzer in the nero wolfe epsiode 'the mother hunt'...

Thanks, I tried to upload two pics for Nero Wolfe epsiode with no success. I agree even though there are other actors via archival footage in 'Wishful Drinking', it is too much a cheat to call it scene stealing.

I never knew that was George Lucas and Carrie Fisher on the bridge in Hook! :)
You have a typo in the list intro:
Fisher balanced her acting and writing careers and was well known for her humorous scene stealing performances.

Thanks, fixed tense in the list. I didn't either but seems to be a well known 'Hook' Easter egg.

I would say all of her scenes. It was very hard to watch Star Wars 9 with the funeral scene as she died in 2016, I'm glad they gave her a funeral scene.

I have met Carrie Fisher at FanX convention face to face in Salt Lake City Utah. I waited over 3 hours just to meet her and say hi and I'm glad I did. However I was unable to buy her autograph and I've regretted it ever since. May she and Debbie Reynolds rest in peace.
