    I'm thinking the two Oscars might have had something to do with it ...

    Anyone know how this getting a star business works? Does someone have to nominate you? Do you just decide your worth it and buy a star? Inquiring minds...
    You were lucky to have me. But you know what? I think I already got the best part of you. And she's standing right out there. I don't know... what's left just doesn't look so good anymore. Hope Floats

    You have to be nominated, there is criteria. Hollywood has a mayor even though it's a part of the City of Los Angeles. Actually I think Hollywood might be partially it's own city by now.

    well mebbe it's not too soon. At any rate, I'm happy for her.

    Yeah, even though there is only a 5-year criteria, she still hasn't done enough IMO. In years past, it was a HUGE thing when someone got a star. A real honor. Now, it's

    When nominating an individual or group, the sponsor must submit the nominee’s qualifications as well as contributions to the community and/or civic-oriented activities. The application must be accompanied by a biography (not exceeding two pages) and photograph of the nominee
    I would love to see the applications for some of the people who have received stars. This has got to be more of a popularity contest than truly earning an honor anymore.
