Hollywood Stars Get Facelift for Oscars


Some of Hollywood's most famous stars are getting facelifts before the Academy Awards.

Workers have been busy fixing broken sidewalk stars and cracked terrazzo on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the Kodak Theatre, where the glitzy Oscar ceremony will be held Feb. 25.

"We wanted it to look good for the Academy Awards," said Hollywood honorary mayor Johnny Grant, who leads the Hollywood Historic Trust that operates the Walk of Fame.
