  • Does this make Guy Fieri look like he has a halo? Yes, it does.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced its "Class of 2019" inductees and among the stars of film, TV, stage and music to receive a star on the Walk of Fame is — holy moly, stromboli — one Guy Fieri of Ferndale.

No dedication ceremony dates have been announced yet but expect the host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (it filmed in Humboldt once, you might have heard about it), Guy's Grocery Games and Rachel vs. Guy: Kids' Cook-off  (shama-lama ding-dong, when does he sleep?) to unveil his polished pink star sometime next year. Righteous.

Here's who else is heading for the storied sidewalk along with Humboldt's favorite Donkey Sauce-slinging son.

From the chamber website:
In the category of MOTION PICTURES:
Alan Arkin, Kristen Bell, Daniel Craig, Robert De Niro, Guillermo del Toro, Anne Hathaway, Lupita Nyong’o, Tyler Perry, and Gena Rowlands.

In the category of TELEVISION:
Alvin And The Chipmunks, Candice Bergen, Guy Fieri, Terrence Howard, Stacy Keach, Sid and Marty Krofft, Lucy Liu, Mandy Moore, Dianne Wiest and Julia Child (Posthumous).

In the category of RECORDING:
Michael Bublé, Cypress Hill, The Lettermen, Faith Hill, Tommy Mottola, P!nk, Teddy Riley, Trio: Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris and Jackie Wilson (Posthumous).

Idina Menzel, Cedric “The Entertainer”, Judith Light and Paul Sorvino.

Sidebar: Dolly Parton, Gena Rowlands, Robert DeNiro and Emmylou Harris are just getting stars now? With Alvin and the Chipmunks? Come on, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. How did you people miss Julia Child while she was alive?

Guy, I need you to pour out some butter for my girl Julia while you're there. And for Jackie Wilson. Everybody likes butter.
