It’s one of the most coveted accolades an entertainment industry professional can receive in their lifetime and now Ryan Seacrest’s radio co-host Ellen K. is being bestowed with the honor.

Tuesday, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced their new lineup of celebrities who will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame over the next year after being chosen from among hundreds of nominations. Ellen joins Boyz II Men, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Winslet, Jennifer Aniston, Vin Diesel and other recipients of the time-honored award, who will have ceremonies across 2012.

“The committee has selected a fabulous slate of stars to add sparkle and luster to the Hollywood Walk of Fame over the next year, as well as to generate a once-in-a-lifetime Hollywood experience for many of the visitors who stop by when their favorite personalities are having their stars placed in the world-famous sidewalk of the stars,” said John Pavlik, chair of the Hollywood Walk of Fame Selection Committee.
