Well, tonight an era ends as Barbara Waltersbids farewell to her Oscar-night celebrity interview specials. Here's what Cinema Retro had to say about it some time ago; they reckon she could be leaving because she might be sick and tired of covering these "celebrities" who aren't exactly big stars. The star system has really gone downhill in Hollywood and we are seeiing a lot more actors and actresses who may be names, but aren't big "stars" in the movie star tradition. Can you imagine Megan Fox being a "movie star", for example?
I'm actually tuning in right now, and guess what? Barbara Walters just said it on TV: "I'm sick of it."
When you think of it, I can see why anyone would get sick of doing these celebrity interviews -- it can get boring. This "showbiz" stuff can get old.
