As part of the celebration of Laura, Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy, Holland Taylor, and Jeanne Tripplehorn attended the ceremony.

At the ceremony held on the Walk of Fame for the awarding of stars, Linney said of the pomp and circumstance of the occasion, “I wish I were the type of person who could do a jig and be outrageously loud about all of it. It’s just not my nature. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t mean something to me. It does.”
