In a ceremony that had attendees which included directors Mel Brooks and Jeff Kanew, Mazursky was recognized for his achievements throughout his decades-long career.

 

“And like [Federico Felini], Mazursky looks at the ordinary and always sees the extraordinary,” said director Jeff Kanew at the ceremony.

 

Mazursky, 85, began his writing career working on Peter Seller's “I Love You, Alice B. Toklas.” From there, he made a name for himself writing and directing movies like “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,” “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” and “Enemies: A Love Story.” Recently, he directed “Winchell,” starring Stanley Tucci, and the documentary “Yippee,” though he did not participate in writing duties for either. Mazursky was nominated for five Academy Awards over the course of his career. Three were for Best Original Screenplay, one for Best Adapted Screenplay, and one for Best Picture for his role as producer for “An Unmarried Woman.”

 

Mel Brooks said of his friend Mazursky, “Paul is a special guy and a special talent. And we are forever grateful...for a writer and director who could see the human heart in all its glory and give it to us on the screen.”

 

The star awarded to Mazursky is the 2,515th to be placed on the Walk of Fame so far. Also in attendance were Councilman Mitch O'Farrell and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler.
