Hollywood Buzz: Most Fascinating People, Modern Family, Elizabeth Taylor
Barbara Walters' annual list is making headlines again, Lindsay Lohan is back in court and Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry sets a record.
Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating People
Barbara Walters has chosen her 10 most fascinating people of the year. The highly anticipated special airs tonight. This time, Barbara gets 90 minutes to talk to the biggest movers and shakers, and not to mention drama makers. Action News' Shirleen Allicot got a chance to speak to her today about how she narrowed down the list.
Walters said anyone who had a big year, and a strong story to share would be considered.
There's Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson who play the gay couple on ABC's hit sitcom "Modern Family."
The often snarky Simon Cowell who shows Barbara his charming side, and not to mention his amazing home.
Herman Cain and reveals the real reason he bowed out of the presidential race.
And then there's TV's reality royalty, the Kardashians, whom Barbara acknowledged were a controversial choice. She also admitted they weren't the most cooperative either.
"With the Kardashians, we said, 'We're doing you very early, anything going to happen?' (They said,) 'No. No. Things are going to stay the same' Then Kim gets married, then Kourtney gets pregnant, then Khloe's moving to Dallas. But, 'No. No. Nothing's going to happen.'
"So I think... I've said this before but you just can't trust the Kardashians.'"
But apparently you can trust them with a secret.
Barbara's 10 Most Fascinating People airs tonight at 9:30 on 6abc.
TIME Magazine Person of the Year
From Libya to Wall Street, there's no doubt that this was a year of political protests. That's why Time magazine has named "The Protester" 2011's Person of the Year. The designation goes to the person, or in this case the movement, which most influenced events of the past year. Last year, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg got the honor.
Linday Lohan in court
Lindsay Lohan actress showed up in court for a probation hearing this morning - and was actually praised by the judge for completing her required therapy sessions and community service at the morgue. The 25-year-old even cracked a smile at times in response to the judge joking with her. Lohan's due back in court for another hearing next month.
Nominations for the Screen Actors Guild awards were handed out this morning in Los Angeles. The awards honor the best acting in movies and TV. It was good news for the cast of "Modern Family." The ABC smash earned 5 total nominations including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast in a Comedy Series. The deep south drama "The Help" led with 4 film nominations including Outstanding Performance by a Cast. The SAGs air January 29th.
