Carrie Fisher, Prince and Leonardo DiCaprio are among the names not immortalized on Hollywood Blvd
Carrie Fisher? Prince? Leonardo DiCaprio? Why don't these legendary celebrities have stars on the Walk of Fame, but some TV executive from the '50s we've never heard of does? And why does Gene Autry have five? Well, it's complicated. Anyone can nominate a celebrity for placement on the Walk of Fame, but the person nominated has to accept the nomination, then pay a $30,000 fee for the ceremony. And then they even actually have to show up to the ceremony. And if the celebrity is dead, that person is only eligible for inclusion five years after their death, with just one posthumous award granted by a voting body annually. But that shouldn't stop us from trying! So here are some names of individuals who are certainly deserving but you won't see when you're strolling Hollywood Boulevard.
