How to Get your name on the HOLLYWOOD Walk of Fame?

The Hollywood Walk of Fame comprises more than 2,500 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California.

Getting your name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is no easy feat. First thing’s first, you must be nominated by a third party. Once a nominee is selected to receive a star, they have to write a letter accepting their star and vow to be present at their induction ceremony. The third step is the application process

Joanne Woodward earns first star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. On this day in 1960, the official groundbreaking ceremony is held for the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The first star to be dedicated on the historic walkway belonged to the actress Joanne Woodward, an Academy Award winner for The Three Faces of Eve (1957).

Gene Autry is the only person to be awarded stars in the five fields recognized on the Walk of Fame: film, TV, radio, live performance and music. During his lifetime, Autry emerged as both a top money-making entertainer and a powerful businessman.

Can anyone buy a Hollywood star?In theory, anyone can apply for a star—all it takes is mailing an application and a fee to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. “We want the tourists to come to Hollywood to see their favorite stars.” (And the people working behind-the-scenes to create their favorite entertainment, like directors and producers.)

You have to pay a sponsorship fee of $30,000 for a star – that’s about £23,000. Half of the money is used to create the star, which is made out of brass and terrazzo – the black and red speckled material. The other half is given to the Hollywood Historic Trust, who look after the Walk of Fame

At 21, Spears tied with former “Little House on the Prairie” actress Melissa Gilbert for being the youngest person to accept a Walk of Fame star. Gilbert, now 39 and president of the Screen Actors Guild, received her honor in 1985.
