Peter Jackson to join Hollywood Walk of Fame

Sir Peter Jackson says he's "chuffed" at his latest accolade - a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"Being honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame alongside the names of some of my childhood heroes is slightly surreal and incredibly awesome," the Oscar-winning director said.
Jackson is one of 30 stars of movies, television, music, radio and stage to be honoured with a star on Hollywood Blvd. next year.
The recipients were selected from among hundreds of nominees, and the chairwoman of the Walk of Fame selection committee for 2014-15, Maureen Schultz, said the selections represented the best of the entertainment industry.
The Walk of Fame comprises more than 2500 stars embedded in the footpaths along 15 blocks of Hollywood Blvd and three blocks of Vine St in Los Angeles.
Dates have not been scheduled for the star ceremonies, and recipients have five years before their invitations expire.
Full list of recipients:
Motion pictures - Raymond Chandler (posthumous), Eugenio Derbez, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Garner, Peter Jackson, Bob Kane (posthumous), Daniel Radcliffe, Paul Rudd, Snoopy, Melissa McCarthy and Christoph Waltz
Television - James L Brooks, Ken Ehrlich, Bobby Flay, Seth MacFarlane, Julianna Margulies, Chris O'Donnell, Jim Parsons, Amy Poehler, Kelly Ripa and Sofia Vergara.
Recording - Lukasz 'Dr Luke' Gottwald, Kool & The Gang, Pitbull, Al Schmitt and Pharrell Williams.
Radio - Larry Elder.
Live theatre-live performance - Kristin Chenoweth, Dick Gregory and Ennio Morricone.

Sir Peter Jackson is an excellent director and sure has contributed a lot to the film industry. I agree with you Faye that this is a well deserved honour for him by getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I agree with you Kim that it is also great that Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory is getting his star on the walk of fame and I am happy to see that Melissa McCarthy and Christoph Waltz are getting stars on the walk of fame. That would be neat Kim to see how many from LOTR and The Hobbit will be at the ceremony.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Director/Producer/Screenwriter Peter Jackson will be honored with the 2,538th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, December 8, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. PST. The star in the category of Motion Pictures will be dedicated in front of The Dolby Theatre, at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard.

“We are very happy to honor such an esteemed filmmaker as Peter Jackson with a star on the Walk of Fame,” stated Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies. “His groundbreaking and award-winning films are part of the legacy of larger-than-life, Hollywood-style entertainment that is beloved the world over.”

Assisting emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be actor Andy Serkis.

Peter Jackson is one of the world’s most successful filmmakers. One of his monumental achievements, “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy, which he directed, as well as co-wrote and produced along with fellow Academy Award® winners and frequent collaborators Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, collectively earned a total of 30 Academy Award nominations, winning 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for the final film. Jackson and Walsh had received in 1995 their first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for their acclaimed film “Heavenly Creatures.”

Jackson once again plunged into the world of Middle-earth to direct, co-write and produce a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The first film in “The Hobbit” Trilogy, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” was released in 2012 and earned over $1-billion worldwide and three Academy Award nominations. The second film, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” released in 2013, earned over $950-million and earned three Academy Award nominations.

Jackson’s most recent film is the third and final installment. As with the first two films in The “Hobbit” Trilogy, the final film is a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), with New Line managing production. The film will be released by Warner Bros. worldwide on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, with select international territories releasing on December 10, 2014, in High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D) in select theaters, other 2D and 3D formats, and IMAX®.

Jackson, through his New Zealand-based WingNut Films banner, also was responsible for the globally successful 2005 remake of “King Kong,” which earned over $500-million worldwide and three Academy Awards. More recently, Jackson directed the Academy Award-nominated “The Lovely Bones,” an adaptation of the acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold. He also produced the global sensation ‘District 9,” which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. Jackson also produced, with Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, “The Adventures of Tintin,” which was directed by Spielberg. The film won, amongst many other awards and nominations, the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and the Producers Guild of America Award for Animated Motion Picture Producers of the Year. The movie is the first of three, based on the world-renowned comic book series by Hergé, and Jackson will direct the second film in the trilogy.

Jackson has been active in enriching and promoting the arts, as well as supporting worthy humanitarian causes, including stem cell research and civil rights. In his home town of Wellington, he has helped ensure the preservation of key historical sites and theaters, as well as chairing the 14–18 Aviation Heritage Trust. He has also mentored young filmmakers and employed hundreds of actors, artists, craftspeople and technical crew from the U.S., New Zealand, and all over the world on his films and other projects.

Jackson was made a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2002. He was later knighted as a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2010.
