As a person who has contributed so much on the big screen, especially in her iconic role as Princess/General Leia Organa in the "Star Wars" saga, Carrie Fisher deserves this recognition.

I was thinking the same thing Animae - no sense over here in the USA. I'd already signed the Big Oil one.

Here's the thing....they have some kind of rule which says posthumous stars can only be "awarded" 5 years after the person's death. I don't know why, but that's the rule.

Read somewhere that the "stars" pay to get their stars...several hundred dollars. BRW, does Prince have a star? Debbie Reynolds, Leonard Nimoy...etc. Quite a few big name stars don't have them. They'll always be remembered by the works they left behind, whether movies, TV, music, books...Signed.

Freya you are incredibly thoughtful to create this petition posthumously for Carrie Fisher, for her star on the Walk of Fame. I signed 46 SUPPORTERS 1,000 GOAL and i shared on Twitter.
pam w. is right.
Carrie Fisher Could Still Receive an Official Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Meanwhile those who loved and knew her can and will leave their candles, flowers and cinnamon buns on the temporary star for Carrie on the Walk of Fame.
GGMaSheila D expressed the 'truism' ( sorry i'm not sure if that's a word ) !

I agree with Animae. It's absurd that a MONSTER (which was well-known long before he ran for president) could have a star, and a beautiful soul who fought to protect animals and people in need, and was such an incredible talent and an awesome personality for decades does not already have one. How did Hollywood miss this one? There are people who made one move and people don't even know who have stars.

Here's the thing - it costs a candidate $30,000 (yes, you read that right, THIRTY THOUSAND) to buy a star on the walk. This can be raised by fans, of course, but another requirement is that the candidate must confirm in writing that they want the star there, and promise to attend the ceremony (and pay for the party). I suppose that could be accomplished by heirs, but let's go on - the candidate has to submit a bio (the manager usually puts it together) which must be reviewed by a selection committee. (If not selected within two years, one can always reapply - with a new fee.)

I suspect that if Carrie doesn't already have one, it's because she didn't want one. Dustin Hoffman and Julia Roberts don't have one because they don't want one, so she'd be in good company.

Are we sure we wouldn't rather raise $30,000 and donate it to some charity she would have supported? Bulldog welfare maybe? Or Todd and/or Billie could suggest something even closer to her heart. If pam w is right (and I'm sue she is) we have five years to think about it.

$30,000 could be put to better use for the animals/planet. She is probably among the heavenly stars now.

Petition signed. Thank you

But Joanne is right. $30,000 could be spent in a much more beneficial way.

Good morning and thank you for this article -which i read and noted- also the petition- which i signed today- If it turns out to cost 30 thousand dollars for a star -CARRIE WOULD PREFER WE USE THOSE DONATIONS for mental health programs- for animal rescue- for training service animals like she had- she would be very angry with her fans for wasting that money on a cement slab that people walk on - we can do better for her -in her honor and memory we can dedicate a no kill shelter or provide food for the animals there -or volunteer in her name at hospitals or YMCA- or boys and girls clubs - sincerely KAY M.
