Bertolucci is inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame under the category of Motion Pictures. The Hollywood Chamber had placed a star for the director previously, but due to his illness, Bertolucci could not make the ceremony. Leron Gubler, President and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce states:
We are thrilled that Maestro Bertolucci could be here on this special day to visit his Walk of Fame star. We have all been waiting for him for a long time and are glad he could be here to make history with us at his Walk of Fame star and in front of this historic venue.
