Ellen DeGeneres has received the 2,477th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The star honours her contribution to entertainment as a talk show host, comedian, prime-time television star and the voice of Dory from "Finding Nemo."
The ceremony comes six days before the start of the tenth season of her nationally syndicated afternoon talk show, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which has six Daytime Emmy Awards.
"It is amazing because I spend my entire career trying to conduct myself a certain way, making sure that no one walks all over me only to get to a point where people are going to walk all over me. So, I guess this is a wonderful momentous occasion, a day I will never forget and it means so much to me that all of you showed up. Thank you so much to my fans for supporting everything that I do," Ellen said.
Ellen's career began as an MC at a comedy club in her hometown of New Orleans and later moved to Los Angeles in the late 80s.
