Oprah. Buddy Holly. The Muppets? Yep, those are just some of the legends, old and new, who will be getting stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced yesterday that 30 celebrities will mark their spots on the Tinseltown sidewalks in 2011. Among the A-listers: Movie stars Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz, and Gwyneth Paltrow; TV titans Tina Fey, Danny DeVito, and Neil Patrick Harris; and music greats Melissa Etheridge, The Go-Go’s, Rascal Flatts, Slash, and Will.i.Am.
And in a rare family celebration that is sure to make their home-movie reel, Bruce Dern, Diane Ladd, and their daughter Laura Dern will each get a star during the same ceremony.
Perhaps Neil Patrick Harris best summed up everyone’s feelings when he tweeted yesterday, “Getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – awesome. Having it be in the same year as the Muppets – priceless.”
