Many folks may not understand the process that goes into selecting each nominee for a star. Ana Martinez-Vice President of Media Relations/Producer for the Hollywood Walk of Fame had this to share-“Selena Fans wanted to send in signed petitions to nominate her for a star as she was loved across the globe, but that wasn’t the correct process. There is an application and criteria that must be met. Longevity in the business, philanthropic work are among some of the factors that are considered,” shared Martinez. “In the case of Selena, we needed to be contacted by the family and have consent for her to receive the star. A businessman and friend of the Quintanilla family approached them to ask if he could nominate Selena with their support and the family agreed to have him as their sponsor for her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
