A Brief History

The first star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was unveiled on February 9th, 1960, when Joanne Woodward was honored with a star on the historic site. Since then, over 2,700 stars have been added to honor celebrities across the entertainment industry; actors, actresses, directors and producers in film and television as well as artists from music, radio and theater are all represented among these stars. Each year dozens of new honorees are selected by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s selection committee who offer recommendations for nominees each spring.
