Spielberg Snags Star, Sets Stage For 2003

January 7th, 2003

30 years and 3 Oscars after a career that lends him credits to arguably some of the most monumental films in American Culture, Steven Spielberg finally accepts his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With the dedication site set outside the Kodak Theater this Friday, the five point monument won’t be the first time Spielberg has his name forever branded into the Hollywood Blvd bustle. Spielberg’s cemented prints and signature can be seen on the same strip in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in a section reserved for only the true aristocrats of the Hollywood monarchy.

In the announcement made on Monday, January 6th, 2003, Walk of Fame Chairman Johnny Grant stated this is the first time he (Spielberg) has made him self available for the award, adding “We're just pleased that we finally got him, He could have been approved 20 years ago."
