No, I’m not being dramatic.
Barbara Walters is no longer doing her pre-Oscar special. This year is her last — after that, kaput.
How can this happen? What kind of world would allow this? I haven’t seen an actual Oscar telecast in 25 years (that Johnny Carson just seemed fresh), but the lead-up was like the best mah jong game of the year. Every year.
Now? I have this taste in my mouth like a pastrami sandwich with mayo. Feh.
