For his role in "Black-ish," Anderson has received six consecutive Emmy nominations for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. This makes him the most nominated Black actor for the same category in Emmy history.

Anderson is also the first celebrity to be honored with a star on the Walk of Fame since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with Variety, he admitted that he was looking forward to the glamour that came with getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Anderson rose to the spotlight in 2000 when he appeared in hit movies like "Big Momma's House" and "Me, Myself & Irene."
