Planning a trip to the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometime soon? Even though there are nearly 3,000 stars moving up and down that long walk, there are a lot of deserving celebrities who have been left out for a long time while newer, more popular celebrities have been receiving such honors sooner than later. But just around the time we were all wondering if these celebrities were ever going to get their own star, they were finally immortalized on Hollywood Blvd.

So the next time you make a trip to that other H-Town, be sure to be on the lookout for these stars who were recently added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Pharrell

“Happy” was Pharrell’s latest hit to blow the charts away. But he was making hits long before the minions were dancing along to his tune. Did you know that one of Pharrell’s first hits was “Rumpshaker” way back in 1992? Talk about a Hollywood star that’s overdue!

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey could probably pave her own Walk of Fame with hit singles, but since she finally got her star in August of last year, she won’t have to!

Amy Poehler

Want to have a few laughs in Hollywood? The Parks and Recreation star was honored with a star on the walk of fame in 2015. Unfortunately, her partner in crime, Tina Fey has yet to get a star (but we hope that when she does, they’ll be right next to one another!)

Matthew McConaughey

You know an actor is overdue for a star when you genuinely assumed they already had one. But if we did, we’d be wrong. McConaughey just got his star in November 2014!

Claire Danes

“This should have happened immediately after My So-Called Life,”  said every ’90s kid.

But things could be worse. While Caire Danes didn’t get her star until September 2015, Jordan Catalano (Jared Leto) still doesn’t have a star.
