Do People Just Not Want To Do This Anymore?

Do People Just Not Want To Do This Anymore?

Good Morning America announced the line-up for the 27th Annual Barbara Walters Oscar Special:

Ellen Page
Harrison Ford
Miley Cyrus
Vanessa Williams

Remember when it used to be mostly nominees and maybe the host? So I very slightly “get” Cyrus (at least her context here) as she was just in that concert movie that made all that money and is presenting at the Oscars. But Vanessa Williams? Save for Page (and depending on who you are, Ford – I personally don’t enjoy the man), this is somehow a lamer list that the Oscar presenters themselves.

You’d think Barbara would know better. Or, as Ryan at put it: Dear Barbara: Hope you find your Rolodex soon.
