Attention CANADIANS! Please nomimate Leonard!

Postby LisaLCFan » Sun Apr 17, 2011 6:05 am

Hi fellow forum members and fellow Canadians:

Please nominate Leonard Cohen for Canada's Walk of Fame 2011 (you only have until the end of April, so please hurry!).

Maybe this year they will finally recognize Leonard and give him this honour!

Thanks,
Lisa

Also - make sure to check your email - they send you an email "confirmation" about your nomination - and you have to confirm - click on the link in the email - to make your nomination counts. :D

Done!
I'm pretty surprised that Leonard doesn't already have a star.

Under my nomination for Canadian Legends I clicked other and listed Irving Layton ... poet, teacher and an advocate of Canadian literature who wasn't afraid to push the boundaries.

thank you for the link Lisa

Oh, to be Canadian and have a vote. Wish they'd consider how Leonard [and others] AS a Canadian is considered by those around the world, AS a Canadian who has helped brighten Canada's place on the map. Have any of you posted this on Facebook? I haven't seen it there, but it doesn't mean it hasn't been done.

Great idea! I wish I'd thought of that! Next year, for sure!

Yes, let's get this thing over with already! Then, all we will have left to wait for is The Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Kennedy Center Honors.

Has Leonard ever been nominated for the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

I was just reading - the person has to be nominated - and there is a considerable fee required to go with the nomination -

Some info from Wikipedia -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hollywood_Walk_of_Fame
Grant also instituted a fee of $2,500 (now $30,000, after a series of incremental increases[7]), payable by the person or entity nominating the recipient, to fund the Walk of Fame's upkeep and minimize further taxpayer burden.

...

On The Outside Looking On

The most common question received by Chamber personnel is, "Why doesn't _____________ have a star?"[15] Numerous major entertainment figures and legendary show business acts are not included on the Walk of Fame, for a variety of reasons. Some, such as Julia Roberts[17] and Clint Eastwood,[15] have declined to participate. (Nominations cannot proceed without the nominee's consent.) Others, such as George Clooney[47] and John Denver,[14] have been nominated but would not agree to the mandatory personal appearance at the unveiling ceremony. Others have simply never been nominated, or do not have a nominee willing or able to front the selection fee, or have less than the required five years' minimum involvement in their designated field. Still others are merely victims of selection constraints and simple mathematics: only about 10% of nominees are selected each year.

Today might be the announcement! They aren't picking up their phones! :lol: They have also removed the banner from their site, which said that the inductees would be announced soon. They had it there for all of May.
