Oprah Just Can’t Quit Her Oscar Special


Oprah Winfrey is hosting a two-hour pre-Academy Awards Show special set to air next Wednesday. This show will feature interviews with three Oscar hopefuls: The Help’s Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer and Moneyball’s Jonah Hill.

Historically, Winfrey aired a post-Oscar show with winners on Monday after the big night, so this is a bit of a change for the former daytime talk show queen, or as Oprah herself would call it, a “new chapter.”

If these tweets are any indications, Hill and Spencer are bringing the excitement:

On my way to get interviewed by Oprah at the coffee shop I went to growing up with my family. #weirdestsentenceihaveeversaid

OMG a surreal day! two words OPRAH WINFREY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oprah Winfrey’s Oscar special will air at 9 p.m. on February 15.
