The 2025 Hollywood Walk of Fame Honorees have been announced, and boy, is it star-studded!

Having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a significant honor that recognizes an individual's or group's contributions to the entertainment industry. Receiving a star is a prestigious acknowledgment of the recipient's achievements in entertainment. It symbolizes their impact and success in their respective fields, whether it's motion pictures, television, music, radio, or live performances.

Stars are awarded in five categories:

  • Motion Pictures

  • Television

  • Music Recording

  • Radio

  • Live Theatre/Performance

 Anyone, including fans, can nominate a celebrity for a star. However, the application must include a written statement from the nominee or their representative agreeing to the nomination. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame Selection Committee reviews the nominations. They consider the nominee's professional achievements, longevity in the entertainment industry, and community contributions. Only a limited number of stars are awarded yearly, typically 20-30. The committee's decision is final.

Receiving a star has a significant financial aspect. As of 2024, the price is approximately $75,000, which covers creating and installing the star and maintaining the Walk of Fame. The nominating party, a fan club, a film studio, a record company, or sometimes the celebrities themselves usually pay this fee. The star unveiling is a public ceremony attended by the celebrity, their fans, and often other notable figures. It's a major media event, attracting significant press coverage and fanfare.

The star is embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California. The precise location can sometimes hold special significance, such as near other related stars or notable landmarks. Having a star is a lasting legacy, immortalizing the recipient's contributions to entertainment. It becomes a part of Hollywood history and a point of pride for fans and the honoree.
