Receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is one of the biggest honors that Hollywood stars can hope for, and the class of 2023 has been announced. Uma Thurman, Ellen Pompeo, and the late Paul Walker are among the celebrities set to receive their stars.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced the list of about two dozen of honorees being granted their own stars. This doesn’t automatically mean they’ll get the star – each one comes with a fee, and honorees have two years to accept the award.

Walker and Thurman are receiving their stars for their contribution to motion pictures, while Pompeo is one of the television honorees alongside Mindy Kaling and Jon Favreau. Lenny Kravitz, Jonas Brothers, and Blake Shelton are getting the stars for their work in the recording industry.

The list of honorees was hand-picked by the Selection Panel, made up of fellows Walk of Famers, and the organization’s chairwoman Ellen K said they’re looking forward to celebrating the new generation of recipients.

“The panel thoughtfully selected these talented individuals, and we can’t wait to celebrate them as they become part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway!” Ellen K said in a statement.
