Did you know that Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds is receiving the SAG Life Achievement Award at Sunday's ceremony? It's awesome and well-deserved — she's been a scene (and heart) stealer in everything from Singin' in the Rain to Will & Grace. I mean, with career scope (in terms of variety and years) like that, it's no wonder she's scooping up a lifetime achievement win. I'm excited to see the video montage and her speech, but you know what else is awesome? Reynolds' daughter, Carrie Fisher, will be presenting her with the award, and there are sure to be emotional, happy tears all around.
It can be hard to keep track of which celebrities are the children of other famous people. There's Lily Collins (daughter of Phil Collins), Gwyneth Paltrow (daughter of Blythe Danner), Colin Hanks (son of Tom Hanks), Kate Hudson (daughter of Goldie Hawn)— heck, there's even third-generation actor Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and granddaughter of Tippi Hedren). Long story short, sometimes we may forget it, but Fisher's the daughter of Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, and the mother and daughter have stayed quite close over the years. So in celebration of Debbie's award (and her daughter's bequeathing of it), let's take a look at some of their best mother/daughter moments.
At The Launch Of Fisher's Memoir
How sweet is it that Reynolds supported her daughter's memoir? Given the over-share-y subject material, it probably was a bit uncomfortable for her to read, but hey — that's a healthy mother/daughter relationship in a nutshell.
Oh, to experience such delight at the sight of a pinwheel (also, I don't know what's going on with Reynolds' hair, but I like it).

A Paley Center Event For Debbie's Extensive Memorabilia Collection
Did you know Debbie Reynolds has a huge collection of Old Hollywood costumes? She even had an auction of it back in 2000. Anyway, this picture is particularly special, as it features three generations — it includes the granddaughter of the bunch, Billie Catherine Lourd (who's slated to appear as Flashback Princess Leia in the upcoming Star Wars : The Force Awakens ).
