10 million visitors can't be wrong. That's the number of tourists each year who flock to the Hollywood Walk of Fame to take a peek at the more than 2,400 terrazzo and brass stars (on a 1.3 mile stretch of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street) of Hollywood luminaries of stage, screen, radio, TV and music. And late last week, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced 30 new recipients for 2011. Among the nominees are the first "family" induction with Bruce Dern, Diane Ladd and Laura Dern, 'American Idol' creator Simon Fuller, Oprah Winfrey, Tina Fey, Penelope Cruz, The Muppets, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ridley Scott, Sissy Spacek, Donald Sutherland, Reese Witherspoon, Danny DeVito, Neil Patrick Harris, Melissa Etheridge, Joe Mantegna, the Go-Go's, Slash, will i. am, Buddy Holly and Louis Prima. Nomination doesn't insure a star will be laid: A fee of $25,000 is required to pay for the creation and installation of the star, as well as general maintenance. But that shouldn't get in the way of anyone on this list.
