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.Learn more here.
