I have said it before i will say it again....YOU BUY YOUR STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME!!!! look it up. its not just *given* You have to give 25,000 dollars, and i think alot of these people who are nominated just dont give it much crediblity and than some are attention getters and get thier FAN CLUBS to donate the money....seriously it happens all the time

I'd rather see the stars of people like Hepburn, Tracy, and Gable. And Garland! But overall I really don't care about the stars these days. However, Luciana's dress is gorgeous! :)

I kind of agree with you Greggie...I think this whole star thing has become kind of tarnished. I mean, really? Ryan Seacrest? How does he even compare to some of the classic stars that are already there?

Good for him but imo the whole 'star' thing has lost its appeal over the past couple of years, they have been giving 'stars' to the lamest people.

I totally adore him! He is great actor and still remains down-to-earth, open-hearted, with great sense of humor! He even can make jokes with himself - this is the sign of wisdom! I think we will hear more and more of him in the future!

THat's right. It's not much of an honor but was probably paid by Universal just to publicize the Bourne movie that is having its premiere on the same day......

Good for Matt. I'd be more concerned if Matt Damon were given a Nobel Prize. A Walk of Fame star is part of the Hollywood illusion. He's an actor, we all know him, let him have his star, whether he had to pay for it himself or not.

Scarlet, THEY are probably happy with their statues...but stars always get on the walk of fame while promoting a movie. The studios and record companies have more to do with it than the celebrities. It is all a part of the promotion machines.

A $25,000 fee for a lame star in which random drunk people urinate on? Why can't these people just be happy with their little gold statues?

I am not a fan of Ryan Seacrest...but he HAS been building an empire in radio for a very long time. He didn't get it for hosting Idol, he got it for his work in Radio and Broadcasting. He is today's Casey Casem. As I said before, the stars are meant to be a tourist attraction, so the selection is usually very short sighted. Who is popular today has more influence than who is a classic star. I would guess that the majority of stars you see on the walk would make most people go "huh"????

Got this off of wikipedia: Nominations are submitted annually by May 31, and the Walk of Fame committee meets the following month to pick the next year's group of honorees. Maintenance The Walk of Fame is maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. In order for a person to get a star on the Walk of Fame, he or she must agree to attend a presentation ceremony within five years of selection, and a $25,000 fee must be paid to the Trust for costs such as security at the star ceremony; a 2003 FOX News story noted that the fee is typically paid by sponsors such as film studios and record companies, as part of the publicity for a release with which the honoree is involved. On other occasions, the fee is paid by a fan club or the nominating person or organization. However, controversy and mystery surrounds the way the "Stars" are nominated and approved, as discussed in a 2001 ABC News story that interviewed honorary Hollywood mayor Johnny Grant.
