“The Walk of Fame selection panel is pleased to announce 35 new honorees to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Selection Panel, made up of fellow Walk of Famers, hand-picks a group of honorees each year that represent various genres of the entertainment world,” said Ellen K, chair of the Walk of Fame selection panel. “The panel has done an exemplary job in choosing very talented people. We can’t wait to see each and every honoree’s face as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history as we unveil their star on the world’s most famous walkway!”
The honorees were chosen from among hundreds of nominations at a selection committee meeting held earlier this month with the final approval coming down to the Hollywood Chamber’s board of directors.
