I don't see any reason...

...why I can't get a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I mean, Tinkerbell?

I'd also like nominate Ferg.

The 2009 Star Recipients are...

MOTION PICTURES:

Tinkerbell, Tim Burton, Leslie Caron,
Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey, Jr.,
Charles Durning, Ralph Fiennes,
Hugh Jackman, Sir Ben Kingsley and William H. Macy

Pretzel Note: I can get behind everyone of those motion pictures folks. Except Tinkerbell. She's a cartoon. (I love William H. Macy.)

TELEVISION:
Mark Burnett, Felicity Huffman, Chuck Lorre, William Petersen,
Kyra Sedgwick, and John Stamos

Pretzel Note: I'm not sure if the man who gave us Survivor and Are you smarter than a 5th grader? should be applauded. And I'd like confirm that Uncle Jesse does deserve his star.

RECORDING:
Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, Dave Koz, The Miracles, Doug Morris,
RUSH, Shakira and The Village People

Pretzel Note: Really? RUSH?

RADIO:
Bill Handel and Harry Shearer

Pretzel Note: Yeah, I don't them either.

Look! We can nominate people. On the Hollywood chamber of commerce page FAQ it states:

Q: Who can do the nominating?
A: Anyone, including a fan, can nominate a celebrity as long as the celebrity or his/her management is in agreement with the nomination. If there is no letter of agreement included from the celebrity or his/her representative, the committee will not accept the application.

Pretzel Note: So, I'm going to assume most of the folks who have stars were nominated by someone in their inner circle. Sad.

Q: What is the cost of a Walk of Fame star ceremony?
A: $25,000 upon selection. The money is used to pay for the creation and installation of the star, as well as maintenance of the Walk of Fame.

Pretzel Note: I guess this means that the celebrity pays for their own star? Isn't that like when Michael Scott presented himself with a, "World's Best Boss" trophy?

Q: Can I nominate someone who doesn’t fit in any of the five categories?
A: No. The categories do not change and the nominee must be or have been active in the field of entertainment.

Pretzel Note: Shoot. Ferg's out.

  1. Man-o-man, they are just GIVING those stars away to anyone. I thought picking the people was a little more formal and there was alot of thought. Guess, not really. If they have to pay for their own star, weird. I loved the Michael Scott comparison - you are right on!

    Um, I LOVE Rush!!!

  2. K.Ann Marie, you just outed your age...or mine....RUSH is considered to be a critcally accalimed...if Candian band...of extreme talent and who I saw in concert in 1985 with Donnie in Tucson. These three Canadian gentlemen...um....well, they had odd names, but good music and won many a Juno.

    I shall be burning a copy of Trees and Tom Sawyer for you T.O.D.A.Y.

  3. Well that's a major oversight on Hollywood's part.

    (I don't like RUSH at all. Hate their sound.)
