British actress Emma Thompson was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Friday, organizers said.

 

Thompson won a best actress Oscar for “Howards End” and was nominated for acting Oscars for “The Remains of the Day,” “In the Name of the Father” and “Sense and Sensibility.” She won a screenwriting Oscar for “Sense and Sensibility.”

 

“Emma Thompson is one of the world’s most respected talents for her versatility in acting as well as screenwriting. On Aug. 20, her current global hit, Universal Pictures’ ‘Nanny McPhee Returns,’ comes to the United States and Canada,” the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said on its Web site. “Thompson is currently writing a new film version of ‘My Fair Lady’ for Sony Pictures and starring, with Alan Rickman, in a flagship production of the poem ‘The Song of Lunch,’ by Christopher Reid, for the BBC.”

  Russell Crowe has earned a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. 

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has revealed its honorees for 2010 and Russell Crowe’s name was on a list of 28 entertainers.

 

A date for the New Zealand-born Oscar winner’s ceremony, where a star will be placed on Hollywood Boulevard, is yet to be scheduled, but it will occur during 2010.

 

Other celebrities set to cement a place in Hollywood history in 2010 are director James Cameron, actors John Cusack, Colin Firth, Adam Sandler, Emma Thompson and Mark Wahlberg, and musicians Bryan Adams, The Funk Brothers, Chaka Khan, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, the band ZZ Top and Roy Orbison.

 

The Chamber of Commerce selected just 28 names from more than 200 nominations.

 

Australians who recently received the honour include Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett.

 

Earlier this year Hugh Jackman received another honour, leaving his hand prints in wet concrete outside Hollywood’s Grauman Chinese Theatre.
