The list of people who will be gain a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been revealed.
Read more to see some people who should have been on the walkway way before now and see some who are fairly premature to gain a star.
Rick Baker, Javier Bardem, Viola Davis, Olympia Dukakis, James Franco, Ron Howard and Helen Mirren will receive stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced.
Among the 24 honorees next year will also be TV favorites Simon Baker, Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres, Jane Lynch, Katey Sagal and Matthew Perry.
From the recording industry, stars will be given to the Backstreet Boys, Jennifer Hudson, Jane’s Addiction, Janis Joplin, New Kids on the Block, Usher, Thalia and Luther Vandross. Also receiving the five-pointed salute will be Penn & Teller, Steve Harvey and deejay Shotgun Tom Kelly.
Granted some of these names I don’t even know, I have some problems. Good for Usher, right timing I suppose, as well as James Franco. Kind of late for Backstreet Boys, NKOTB, Steve Harvey, and Luther Vandross..where were they before? Late for some greats like Helen Mirren and Ron Howard as well. I think Jane Lynch could have waited a while, but she has won numerous awards, and she is pretty prestigious in her own right, so I’ll let her slide. And Jennifer Hudson? Already as well? But she did have mega Dreamgirls, among other things. I’ll let her slide too. I guess this is a nice, diverse, solid list then.
