Barbara Walters Ends Oscar Special

Oscar season will say goodbye to one of its most time-honored traditions after this year, as Barbara Walters has announced that she will no longer host her annual Oscar special. "I think I'm sick of them," Walters said on The View today. "I feel I've been there, done that. 29 years is enough." For nearly three decades, Walters' interviews with nominees have been a staple of awards season, but Walters said she thought that waiting until next year to end on the special's 30th anniversary would be "cliché," adding, "I felt it was enough."
