Twenty-nine years, 93 interviews, one regret.
That's Barbara Walters' personal scorecard when it comes to ranking her internationally famous Oscar-night interviews that come to a close Sunday evening in a program featuring Mo'Nique and Sandra Bullock.
For nearly three decades, the interviews made up one of the most sought-after, eagerly watched, highest-rated programs on television, but now, Walters has decided to stop doing them.
It's not a retirement, because she admits that she's going to continue delving into the private lives of the world's big names, but the showbiz-specific package she puts together at Oscar time each year will be a thing of the past.
"Until very recently, to see one of these movie stars on this program was a big deal for them and for me. But now, with all these cable programs giving people sound bites of every star, I would have to come up with a show that was special, special, special!"
Walters is on the phone from her Manhattan office and to be totally honest it's an intimidating experience. I've profiled some of the biggest stars today without blinking an eye, but now I'm talking to the woman who is arguably the most famous and most successful interviewer of our time.

She’s not a tree...she’s a dried up scrub bush or maybe a tumbleweed.
If you wewe a twee, what kind of twee would you be?
Nasty old whore.
“What kind of tree is she?”
As I recall, for some time she was co-anchor of ABC’s nightly news. That was the beginning of the end for ABC news.
I was trying to think of a tree that looks nice on the outside but is poison on the inside or something.
The Upas, or poison tree of Java?
But I’d say she’s a Hoary Elm.
That’s a good one.
Mississippi loblolly pine.
Shouldn’t that be Weeping Wiwwow?
I’m not sure of the name of the tree - but she looks a lot like the one my mini dachshunds like to wee-wee on.
A wee wee twee?
