I'm someone who is born and bred in New Jersey, and It's exciting to see that so many celebrities have ties or grew in the Garden State. So it was cool to read about the 2018 nominees for the New Jersey Hall of Fame on News 12 New Jersey.

The nominees for the "Class of 2018" include some familiar names like comedian, Chris Rock, actor, Anne Hathaway, and athlete, Laurie Hernandez (who was a member of the U.S. women's gymnastics team at the 2016 Summer Olympics).

If you're a fan of "Game Of Thrones" you might want to vote for actor, Peter Dinklage (who portrays Tyrion Lannister in the show) and author, George R. R. Martin (who wrote the books series that "Game of Thrones" is based on).

There are other celebrities and notable people that made the list and you can see the full list here. Once you've read about all the nominees you can vote for your favorites here.
