Ebert Gets Star


Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert isn't a movie star but he critiques them on TV - so memorably that on Thursday he received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

A crowd of family, friends and fans cheered as Ebert's star was unveiled in front of Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre. Attendees included director Werner Hertzog, actress Virginia Madsen and actor Tony Danza.

"When I watch movies, I can feel what it's like to walk in another person's shoes," Ebert, 65, told the crowd. "Movies make us more decent people. This is a wonderful day for me."

Ebert, who began his journalism career as a 15-year-old sports writer for The (Champaign, Ill.) News-Gazette, was named the Chicago Sun-Times film critic six months after joining the paper in 1966. In 1975, he became the first film critic to receive a Pulitzer for arts criticism.

You Said

Wait, so he just NOW got one ... but Ryan Seacrest already has one?

Yeah--Ebert has a Pulitzer and that moron got a star before he did. Makes no sense.

Ebert has a pulitzer? Pesonally, I think movie critics are on the take. Some of his "thumbs up" are horrendous.

Have you ever seen the tour of his home in Chicago?? I had no idea people who do THAT for a living made so damn much money!
