Selection and Construction Nomination Process and Homage Every year, an average of 200 nominations are submitted to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame .

Posthumous nominees must have been deceased at least five years.

Contents The Hollywood Walk of Fame can be found on the sidewalks along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA. It serves as an entertainment hall of fame for achievement in theater, the movies, radio, recording, and TV. In 1984, a fifth category, Live Theatre, was added to permit acknowledgement of contributions from the live performance branch of the entertainment industry, and a second row of stars was created on each sidewalk to alternate with the existing stars. Nominations are submitted annually by May 31, and the Walk of Fame committee meets to pick the next year's group of honorees. Each June, the new recipients are announced for the following year. Each year, approximately 25 new persons are selected for a star on the Walk of Fame. Expansion and Restoration To encourage supplemental funding for the project by corporate sponsors, the "Friends of Walk of Fame" program was inaugurated. Absolut Vodka became the first Friend with a donation of $1 million, as the first major contributor to the restoration process, followed by L'Oréal.
