The ceremony for Davis, who Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez described as an actress “who always mesmerizes fans with her talent,” is set for Jan. 5, 2017.
Davis rose to stardom after 2008’s “Doubt,” then snagged an Academy Award nomination for her performance in 2011’s “The Help,” and is currently starring on ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder” (“HTGAWM”). There’s also Oscar buzz surrounding her performance in the Denzel Washington-directed “Fences.” She’s certainly deserving of the honor on merit alone.
Powerhouse performances aside, the news about Davis’ Hollywood star feels especially right at this time given that she’s often been the empowering, important breath of fresh air Hollywood so desperately needs.
