Just a couple of weeks ago during the last days of November, the list of the new inductees for the prestigious Walk of Fame at the Central Plaza of Eastwood City (the Philippine version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame) were announced.

Organizers were quick to clarify why Joshua Garcia and James Reid were not included in this year’s ceremony even if they were nominated stating that their physical presence during the induction was a strict requirement by the organization for them to be awarded. “Well, in fact, for this year’s inductees, we invited their love teams. Unfortunately, they can’t make it. The board is very very strict, eh. Presence is really required. So if you notice, Mr. James Reid is not included anymore because he had to extend his stay in Australia to attend to the needs of his father, which we fully understand. [For Joshua Garcia], he wasn’t able to provide a schedule also,” stated Federico Moreno, the son of the late German Moreno, who is also the president of the foundation that bears his father’s name.

Mr. Moreno also clarified that there is still a chance for James and Joshua to be part of the Walk of Fame since they are still qualified for nomination next year, “Once you are nominated, we try to nominate naman din again next year.”

We would like to congratulate our celebrity idols who made it to the Walk of Fame this year and we are keeping our fingers crossed for James and Joshua to finally be part of it next year!

  • How about Nadine Lustre? This girl, influence a lot of filipina girl to stand and be proud of who they are? Why is it nobody noticed? I don’t think so? She has a remarkable movies, international endoresement and she has her own costemetics. She is a very productive girl actress. I think she is qualified more than enough to noticed and recognized with her name to be part of WOF.

  • Nadine Lustre was included in the list too… only to be replaced by julia b. coz she couldn’t make it… as reported by WOF organizers..

    So..she ought to have been rightfully mentioned also …aside from james and joshua.
