— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) June 22, 2017
The Hollywood Walk of Fame announced their additions for 2018 yesterday, and it includes many of our favorite actors and performers for whom acknowledgement is long overdue.
This includes beloved Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter, Gillian Anderson whom we love in everything but most recently American Gods, Taraji P. Henson who’s in the television category for Empire, Niecy Nash who’s killing it right now on Claws, TV hero Shonda Rhimes, and Drag Race‘s Rupaul. And of course, is it a surprise to anyone that Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda received one for theater, and Star Wars hero Mark Hamill for film?
Here’s the full list.
From the television industry: Steve “The Crocodile Hunter” Irwin, Anthony Anderson, Gillian Anderson, Lynda Carter, Simon Cowell, Taraji P. Henson, Eric McCormack, Ryan Murphy, Niecy Nash, Mandy Patinkin, Shonda Rhimes and RuPaul.
From the film industry: Jack Black, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Goldblum, F. Gary Gray, Mark Hamill, Jennifer Lawrence, Gina Lollobrigida, Minnie Mouse, Nick Nolte and Zoë Saldana.
In Recording: Mary J. Blige, Sir Richard Branson, Petula Clark, Harry Connick, Jr., Ice T, Snoop Dogg, Carrie Underwood and “Weird Al” Yankovic
In Live Theater and performance: Charles Aznavour, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and posthumous Bernie Mac.

The two posthumous stars in the awardees are Steven Irwin and the late comedian Bernie Mac. Irwin’s daughter Bindi Irwin shared a heartwarming message on Instagram, writing “I am beyond excited to share with you all that we have just received the news that Dad will be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dad changed the world by reaching out to people through their television screens to bring them on the adventure of a lifetime. To have his name on a Hollywood Star means the world as we carry on his important work.”
Do you see any of your faves up there?
