As members of Hollywood’s elite, one of the greatest honors you can be given is having your name embedded on a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. While some people may wait a lifetime for this particular accolade, others such as Lupita Nyong’o earn their honoree status early on in their careers.

We are excited to see each and every honoree’s face as they unveil that majestic star on Hollywood’s most famous walkway!"
