Mahershala Ali, Chris Hemsworth among next Hollywood Walk of Fame stars
The Walk of Fame committee has unveiled a list of 35 unique celebrities from the worlds of film, music, TV, performance, and radio who would be honoured in 2020.
LONDON - The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's Walk of Fame Selection Committee has unveiled a list of 35 unique celebrities who would receive their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.
The committee has unveiled a list of 35 unique celebrities from the worlds of film, music, TV, performance, and radio who would be honoured in 2020, with the likes of Alicia Keys, Elvis Costello, Nigel Lythgoe, Dave Chappelle, Milo Ventimiglia, Chris Hemsworth, Mahershala Ali, Andy Cohen and Cindy Crawford also set to receive their spots.
Selection Committee chair Vin Di Bona said: "The Walk of Fame Selection Committee is pleased to announce our newest honourees to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This year's choices were particularly unique. We were able to recognise the talents of 35 artists who have already built a legacy here in Hollywood."
Recipients have two years to schedule their ceremonies from the date of being selected.
One person who hadn't made the list for next year was the late Carrie Fisher, whose Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill, who recently suggested his friend should get a spot in place of former Apprentice star and current US President, Donald Trump.
Earlier this week, the Child's Play star shared a 2018 article calling for the president's star to be replaced and added on Twitter: "Good riddance! (and I know just who should replace him....)#AStarForCarrie (sic)"
However, stars were never removed from the walk and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce explained that, while they would love for Fisher - who passed away in December 2016 - to feature on the walk, she wasn't eligible yet.
Spokesperson Ana Martinez said: "We would love for Carrie Fisher to have a star, but the application has to be submitted on the fifth anniversary of her death."
In addition, a family member would have to agree to the installation and pay out around $50,000 for the spot.
