Giancarlo Esposito, Tupac Shakur to Receive Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Giancarlo Esposito, Tupac Shakur to Receive Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Nice! The Hollywood Walk of Fame committee announced its 2014 honorees in a ceremony today featuring Jennifer Lopez, who received a star. The latest group of entertainers whose names will grace Hollywood Boulevard includes Giancarlo Esposito and Tavis Smiley for their achievements in television, as well as a posthumous honor for Tupac Shakur in recording. 

Legendary songwriting/producing team Holland-Dozier-Holland were also honored in music. Of note, there were no black honorees in film. 

Rounding out the honorees to receive stars in 2014 are Orlando Bloom, Ray Dolby, Sally Field, Jack Harris, Jessica Lange, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Neeson, Paul Mazursky and Tom Sherak for film; Dabney Coleman, Kaley Cuoco, Claire Danes, Deidre Hall, Cheryl Hines, Don Mischer, and Phil Hartman (posthumous) for TV, and Katy Perry and Rick Springfield in music.

Update: An earlier version of this article incorrectly omitted Tavis Smiley as an honoree.

nice list for 2014, but where a star for Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, or James Gandolfini ?????

Congrats to the Honorees. Many of these, particularly Holland-Dozier-Holland, and Mr. Esposito, are long overdue.

Walk of fame is now officially a joke. Kaley Cuoco and Katy Perry??? WTF?
Expect Paris Hilton, Kardashians, etc. as next recepients. Many of those in their graves would want their stars removed.

???

Kaley Cuoco?

Jazzy

Katy Perry, WTF?

An honor on the Walk of Fame is not as meaningful as it used to be. It is bought and paid for and as corrupt as any honor from the Hollywood Foreign Press. Kaley Cuoco is getting a star? But Sally Field hasn't received one until now?! Rick Springfield gets a star at the same time as Holland-Dozier-Holland? Springfield was essentially a one hit wonder. HDH are Motown legends!! This whole thing is a joke!

"Of note, there were no black honorees in film." Your point? I guess no black people in film feel the need to pay money to get recognition? Those stars cost a lot of money. I guess some people NEED that.

Who the fuck are these two? No one knows them! Why is Tupac's picture not there instead? The guy is international with 75 million sold and is in the guiness book of world records, fuck you indiewire.

James Gandolfini absolutely should have a star, before many of those who’ve gotten one the last couple of years. Give him a star already!!!
