Pharrell Williams was nominated for an Oscar for "Happy" but lost. Maybe he'll be satisfied with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The singer, songwriter and producer is one of several musical figures who'll be receiving stars during individual ceremonies on Hollywood Boulevard at some point in the future. The dates have not yet been scheduled; in fact, recipients -- who must be present -- have up to five years to arrange their star ceremonies.
Other newly announced recipients include Pitbull , the hitmaking R&B group Kool & the Gang and super-producer Dr. Luke , whose birth name is Lukasz Gottwald .
