Once again, Barbara Walters interviews Hollywood’s hottest celebrities for her 27th Annual Oscar edition of “The Barbara Walters Special,” airing Sunday on ABC.
This year, Walters sits down with upcoming “Indiana Jones” star Harrison Ford, “Ugly Betty’s” Vanessa Williams, teen mega-star Miley Cyrus, and 2008 Academy Award nominee Ellen Page.
Walters, never afraid of a blunt question, asked Page, “Do you think you deserve to win the Academy Award?”
“I don’t. I really don’t… to be honest with you. I feel really weird even being nominated,” the young star replied.
Walters echoed Page’s surprise about “Juno’s” astonishing success, saying, “Who knew that ‘Juno’ was going to be the sleeper film of the year? Or that Ellen Page would be nominated for an Academy Award?”
The just 21-year-old Page (as of Thursday, February 21) is still shell-shocked and humbled by her Oscar nomination. She told Barbara that fans call her “Juno” on the street.
Another Walters interviewee still adjusting to life in the spotlight is Miley Cyrus. She told Walters it has been a tough transition from teen to tabloid target.
“It’s more hurtful and it’s almost kind of embarrassing.” Cyrus confessed to Walters. “There’s always people taking pictures. I think the hardest is just trying to live a normal life.”
