LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rapper and producer Sean "Diddy" Combs, rock disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer and TV host Barbara Walters have something in common.
They will join 20 other celebrities from radio, recording, theater, television and film to be honored in 2007 with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Recipients were announced Friday by Walk of Fame committee chairman Johnny Grant.

"It's a privilege to honor these performers," he said.

In a marathon meeting held June 16, the committee reviewed more than 200 nominations to select the 23 honorees.

The complete list of 2007 Walk of Fame recipients, as ratified by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce board of directors:

— Motion pictures: Michael Caine, Matt Damon, Lauren Shuler Donner, Jamie Foxx, John Goodman, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert Altman.

— Television: Walters, Erik Estrada, Kiefer Sutherland, Jerry Stiller, Dick Wolff.

— Recording: Combs, Mariah Carey, The Doors, Crystal Gayle, Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain.

— Live theater/performance: Sir Tim Rice, Lily Tomlin.

Finally!! :SN :giggy:

WHOOHOO!!!

I bet an album is coming out, and this is part of the publicity. :D When is she getting it????

I hope they don't put it next to a sewer man hole cover like Shania's star in Canada.

Congratulations Shania! I'm soooooooo proud of you! You totally deserve it! :BigLove :hugs: :cheering :giggy: HEY1

I would love it if I would be able to go to Hollywood to be able to see Shania's star placement (and to see Shania!), but I doubt I will be able to. But, maybe I can convince my parents... I guess I'll just have to wait and find out! If I can't, at least it will probably be on TV.

To answer your question Chris, if the rumors that we've heard lately about Shania releasing a new album sometime between October and November are true, then if the star placement ceremony is held in early 2007, then that would definitely go along with Shania's promotion for the new album! HEY1

Debbie 06-23-2006 01:39 PM

WOW!!! This is something that I will have to attend for sure!!!! Hey Paige maybe I can talk to your parents during the convention and convince them to have you come out to L.A. and stay with Jack and I for a visit...we could make sure it was just about the time Shania gets her star!!!!! :) :GH


CONGRATULATIONS SHANIA!! :) :)

Wow! Shania finally got the Hollywood Walk of Fame...Take that all you Nashville Wanna Bee'ss! Ha Ha! Shania has got grace and she has style....No doubt about it....Plus I love her songs...She is so totally deserving of this award and it is long overdue...But I am glad to see that this country is finally honoring her achievements in the world of Country Music....Yes I agree this is great timming for Shania too as it will help to promote her upcoming album that should be released at the end of this year...Totally Awesome...Wish I could be there to see her get that award...I guess that will mean that Shania will be coming to the USA to accept the award....Alright...I am guessing that this will be Shania's 5th Walk of Fame award she has received...

History


The Walk of Fame is a chronological history of the Hollywood-based entertainment industry and honors those who have made significant contributions in the categories of radio, television, motion pictures, recording and live performance.

The official nomination period is announced in the Hollywood Entertainment Trade publications and an appropriate news release is disseminated to the Los Angeles area print and broadcast media.

The Walk of Fame Committee meets annually. Nomination of an individual or group does not automatically equate to approval of a star in the Walk of Fame. Several hundred applications are reviewed annually, from which an undetermined number is selected. All nominated artists are carefully and objectively evaluated. Those not selected the first year will automatically roll over for a second review the following year. If it is not approved in the second year, nominees must be resubmitted

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. Non-returnable samples of the nominee’s work may also be submitted (i.e. in the recording category -- a music CD; Motion Picture – a DVD). After the Walk of Fame Committee has made its selections, the artist must be approved by the following agencies: the Board of Directors of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Los Angeles City Board of Public Works, with the final approbation being the Los Angeles City Council.

Criteria for Star on the Walk of Fame
1. Professional achievement
2. Longevity of five years in the field of entertainment
3. Contributions to the community

The recipient must agree to attend the dedication ceremony.

In case of a fan nomination, a letter of agreement must be sent by celebrity management.

There is a five-year waiting period after death for nominations of deceased individuals. The Committee does not necessarily select posthumous honorees each year.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce makes every effort to schedule a dedication ceremony on the date requested by the honoree. A 60-day lead period is needed for required permits, the manufacturing of the star, and advance publicity.

Please be advised that if your nominee is selected and the induction does not take place within five years of the selection date, the nominee must be re-submitted during another voting period.

The sponsorship fee is $15,000*.
The Committee does not accept signature petitions, postcards or letters.
Deadline for nominations is May 31, 2006**.
For more information call (323) 469-8311.

Send submissions to:
Hollywood Walk of Fame
7018 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028

* Sponsorship fee subject to change.
** Although the deadline is May 31, 2006, applications are accepted all year long. We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible before the deadline date. Due to the large number of last minute applications we receive at the deadline, we cannot guarantee confirmation of receipt. If you turn in your application in the months prior to the deadline, we can immediately confirm receipt of your nomination and let you know if it contains all the necessary information.

No problem, Benjamin! I always heard that it's hard to get a "star" on the Walk of Fame! Could you imagine, shelling out $15,000 and getting turned down! LOL! :duh! That would suck! :nuts:
Anyways, I'm so happy Shania is finally receiving one! Way to go, girl! :giggy:

Debbie 06-23-2006 02:36 PM

Thanks, awagner for the info. The best part of your information is "The recipient must agree to attend the dedication ceremony". Not that I had any doubt that she wouldn't but it is still nice you know for sure that she will attend. Hollywood here I come!!! Again CONGRATULATIONS SHANIA you sooooo deserve it!

I wonder who paid all that money..;)

The celebrity pays for the upkeep of the star.

Seeing Stars
-- Music Row should love this. They will soon get to walk all over Shania Twain, even when she's sniffing daisies and thinking up names for her sheep on her New Zealand farm.
Shania, along with Crystal Gayle, Tim McGraw and LeAnn Rimes, are among the 2007 honorees getting stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,

Others getting stars on the famous walk include Michelle Pfeiffer, Robert Altman, Mariah Carey, The Doors, and Lily Tomlin.

Let's hope that she schedules it the day of a concert, then a lot of us would make the trip.

resessions 06-23-2006 04:16 PM

I totally want to be in Hollywood to see her when the ceremony is done on the walk of fame. I wonder how far in advance that info will be released so that we can book reservations to be there. I bet it has somewhat to do with the schedule of the artist and all, but I think Chris is right that it'd be a good time to do this at the same period when the new CD is released.

It would be awesome if she could combine this CD release, the walk of fame star ceremony AND a Grant Park style (Chicago) concert at the Hollywood Bowl to kick off the new CD release. That would ROCK !!!!! Of course there would be too many fans wanting to attend a concert at the Hollywood bowl so maybe she could do the concert at Dodger Stadium or the RoseBowl. That would be cool.

sandypsych 06-23-2006 04:21 PM

I do not think it is up to the individual to pick when they want to have the star presented, the committee does that. It is great that she is getting the star regardless of when it might be. It certainly is well deserved.

angwags 06-23-2006 04:25 PM

I just read on Yahoo, that all dates for next year's ceremonies will be announced later this year! :)

WOW, this is great news and very well deserved!!! Depends on the date but I am going to try to make it too!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!! :)

Debbie 06-23-2006 05:00 PM

I just read on the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce web site that they announce the 'star' ceremonies about a week before they happen. That is not to say that they are not announced on other places, such as star sites, Access Hollywood, ET, etc. sooner. I sure hope that for everyone Shania's is announced somewhere sooner than a week before it happens. A week is enough time for me but I live here, most people will need more than a weeks notice to get here to see it. We will just have to put our powerful search engines to work! :)

Cheryl 06-23-2006 05:37 PM

This is great news and thanks for the info about this! Congratulations Shania!!! :yippee: :clap :)

Interesting this someone left out Tim McGraw...But then again they did not list all the qualifiers either. But it is notable that they listed Shania Twain and Leann Rimes together...Ha Ha!

We will be doing a lot of talking at the convention Paige. Your parents are invited to stay here, too. In fact we have a lot of floor room if anyone else wants to stay here. :)

It would have to be at a bigger arena. I seen Shania in concert at the HollyWood Bowl during COO Tour and although it gave the best sound, I didn't think it was the best atmosphere for a rockin' Shania concert.

jen 06-24-2006 09:17 PM

Since Shania likes to make several appearances at one time when doing promotion we are going to have to keep an eye out for other appearances in the LA area such as on Jay Leno, and Ellen.

Another acknowledgement for her achievements. First the Order of Canada and now a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, it seems as though Shania's dreams are coming true all at once.

I'm feeling she's already released her 2nd single around that time (if it's indeed Jan/Feb).. :GL
