Oprah to interview Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Jonah Hill for Oscar special


The two-hour special will feature “revealing” and “intimate” interviews with the nominees — as only Oprah can capture, her network says — as they prepare for Hollywood’s biggest night” — 11 days later.

This year’s Academy Awards broadcast is scheduled to air Feb. 26 on ABC.

Davis is nominated this year as best lead actress in a leading role; Spencer has been nominated in the best supporting actress category. And Hill — nominated for best actor in a supporting role – will talk with Oprah about co-starring with Brad Pitt, Oprah Winfrey’s Network said. (It is the first Oscar nomination for both Spencer and Hill.)

“Oprah’s Oscar Special” will be produced by Oprah’s Harpo Studios.
