One of the best-known monuments of the entertainment industry and its most important icons. There are more than 2500 stars (with new ones being added every now and then – usually about 20 new stars a year) and the Walk of Fame spreads down the Hollywood Boulevard and also Vine Street. The first stars were installed in 1960.
You can find the names of the important actors, directors, singers, musicians and more on them (even fictional characters - e.g. Mickey Mouse). The emblems under the names of the stars tell you to which group they belong to (motion pictures, music, theatre, broadcast radio or broadcast television).
A few stars were awarded even to people (or corporations) outside the entertainment industry (e.g. Neil Armstrong or Victoria’s Secret).
If you are in Hollywood, the Walk of Fame is a must see, so head there and take a picture with the star of your favourite celebrity (or a fictional character). And if their star is not there yet, you can nominate them through the official website of the Walk of Fame.
