The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced 30 new recipients to receive stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday. This year's group will feature the first "family" induction with Bruce Dern, Diane Ladd and Laura Dern all laying down their stars at the same time.  Other intriguing nominees include Oprah Winfrey, "American Idol" creator Simon Fuller, Tina Fey, Penelope Cruz and The Muppets. In general, all the nominees have five years to set an induction date or the honor will, um, "expire."
