Honorees are chosen from among hundreds of nominations to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame committee before being ratified by the Hollywood Chamber’s Board of Directors.
“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,” Chair and radio personality Ellen K said. “The Panel did an amazing job choosing these very talented people. We can’t wait to see each honoree’s reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway.”
The date for Fisher’s official star ceremony has not been set. Recipients have two years to schedule star ceremonies from the date of selection before they expire. According to the Walk Of Fame website, “Upcoming star ceremonies are usually announced ten days prior to dedication on the official website www.walkoffame.com.”
