Four stars for Barbara Walters Oscar Special

Walters & PageAs the Academy Award presentation approaches, that can only mean one thing -- time for a new Barbara Walters special. Yes, yes, what matters most before the big show isn't the red carpet and the fashions, it's who will Barbara be interviewing for her annual Oscar edition? Ms. Walters has four biggies lined up for the Sunday, February 24th (7:00-8:00 p.m. ET) broadcast. Oscar nominee Ellen Page, star of Juno; Indiana Jones, himself, Harrison Ford; Ugly Betty diva, Vanessa Williams; and Hannah Montana/teen queen Miley Cyrus. It's an eclectic group, to say the least, but then, that's Baba Wawa's formula for success, is it not? After all, this is her 27th straight year doing a pre-Oscar special.

ABC's press release reveals a few tidbits from Barbara's penetrating queries. Ellen Page tells Ms. Walters, "I feel weird being nominated with people I have so much respect for and people that I've been blessed to meet during the last few months... I don't know that it's really sunken in yet." Harrison Ford -- no shock -- is happy to be playing Indy again. Vanessa Williams relishes being the villain on Ugly Betty, saying, "The writers do a spectacular job making every moment that I have memorable." And the unbuckled Miss Miley reveals that she's not the character she plays on her hit show!

I'm sure this is just the tip if the iceberg, gang. Leave it to Barbara to make one of these four cry, or -- could she, would she? -- make one of them tell us what kind of tree they'd be if they were a tree? Tune in to find out...then stick around to watch the Academy Awards.
