Barbra Makes An Appearance At The 2008 Oscars... Kind of!

"A Tie?!" Barbra exclaimed last night in a pre-recorded segment for the 80th Annual Academy Awards, referring to her tie with Katharine Hepburn back in 1969 for Funny Girl. (Hepburn won for The Lion In Winter)

The increasingly self-effacing Streisand went on to say "There were five great performances... and I thought mine was pretty good. I wouldn't say great... But I thought, why don't they give us all plaques?". "Hello, Gorgeous! - It was great", Barbra concluded.

Barbra's last appearance at The Academy Awards was in 2005.
