To be honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the world's most famous sidewalk, is a tribute as coveted and sought after as any of the entertainment industry's equally prestigious awards--including the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, or Tony. And, because it recognizes a life-long contribution of both public and peer appreciation, it is a unique honor, a permanent monument of the past, as well as the present.
