One of TV's funniest actors was honored with a Walk of Fame star on Friday. Will & Grace's Debra Messing's Walk of Fame ceremony could be one for the history books — at least when it comes to an amazing woman being surrounded by her fellow female TV legends on her big day. Messing was honored with her friends Mariska Hargitay, Connie Britton, and Sophia Bush by her side. Plus, they all portray strong women on-screen too. From Hargitay's Olivia Benson on SVU to Bush's Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill to Britton's Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights, Grace from Will & Grace is in good company with these icons by her side.

Bush even shared a beautiful ode to Messing's awesomeness on Instagram that will make you fall in love with this celebrity friendship. She wrote,

Are you crying yet? Because it's totally OK to be crying. In addition to being surrounded by her group of talented friends, Messing's 13-year-old son Roman was also by his mom's side. While she's best known for her role as Grace — a role she's currently reprising on NBC's Will & Grace reboot — Messing is a Hollywood treasure. From her fun law show The Mysteries of Laura to guest appearances on shows like Seinfeld and NYPD Blue, Messing continues to be one of TV's most talented stars.

It's about time she got her own star on the Walk of Fame, and knowing her pals were by her side makes the honor all the more impressive. Bush's praise for Messing shows just how much of an inspiration the actor is. On Instagram, Bush shared a photo of herself with Messing, Britton, and Hargitay, and said it was an honor to be friend's with a legend like Messing. Bush's post continued,

This is why the term friendship goals exists. Bush talks about Messing with the heart and passion of a true friend, and her words almost certainly made her pal's day all the more special. Britton shared her thoughts in her own post, writing, "What joy to see Debra Messing get her star on Hollywood Blvd today!! Always remember to never forget to dream your dreams."

Meanwhile, Hargitay posted two photos and lots of praise for Messing on her Instagram, and she captioned both photos with #squadgoals just in case you weren't convinced that these two were BFFs. Seeing women support each other is always wonderful, but there's something extra special about knowing these Hollywood actors have each other's backs. Their unwavering support of one another is a reminder of how strong women are when they stand together.

Fittingly, Messing honored another famous woman during her Walk of Fame speech, according to People. The actor said,

Being able to accept her star surrounded by her squad of badass TV women surely made Messing smile almost as much as putting her hand in Judy Garland's hand print did all of those years ago. From the start of her career all the way to now, she's been surrounded by amazing women, and that's one of the many reasons why Messing is one of the greats.
