This Sunday, March 7, Barbara Walters will host her final Academy Awards special. After 29 years, the 80-year-old veteran journalist is ready to pass the duty along to someone else. Who better to take it on than MTV’s Josh Horowitz?
He’ll need some help though. Josh is a pro, but these are Barbara Walters’ shoes he’s trying to fill. Just learning to walk in heels is going to be a challenge! Fortunately, Josh has a lot of friends out in the world. People like “Avatar” star Stephen Lang, “A Serious Man” star Fred Melamed and “The Hurt Locker” star Anthony Mackie. They’re all pulling for him — wellll, maybe not Mackie — and they’ve all got some words to share, as you’ll see in the video below.
