Steve Irwin, Carrie Underwood, Snoop Dogg to get stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame
On Thursday, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced the 2018 honorees.
Irwin’s daughter, Bindi, is “beyond excited” for her father’s latest honour.
“Beyond excited to share with you all that we have just received news that Dad will be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Bindi tweeted with a photo of herself and her father.
From motion pictures, Jack Black, Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Goldblum, Mark Hamill, Minnie Mouse, and Nick Nolte will also be honoured in the Walk of Fame’s class of 2018.
Business magnate Sir Richard Branson and Steve Jones, the former The Sex Pistols member turn radio host, will also receive a star.
Anyone can nominate a celebrity for Walk of Fame star consideration. Selections are made by a Chamber of Commerce committee.
Walk of Fame honourees or their sponsoring studios must pay US$40,000 for each star granted. Each recipient has two years to schedule their star ceremonies from the date of selection before they expire.
Some of the honourees took to social media to celebrate the news.
