It has been 21 years since Barbara Walters hosted her first 10 Most Fascinating People special – and now she's adding 10 more people to her list of honorees.
"It's crazy. I'm so fortunate to have been doing this for so many years," Walters tells PEOPLE of hosting the annual special at the age of 85. "I would've had to have been out of my mind to think that would happen."
Her past lists have been filled with names ranging from celebrities (like Tom Hanks and Barbra Streisand) to politicians (like Madeleine Albright and Hillary Rodham Clinton) to those changing the world (like Mother Teresa and Steve Jobs).

The funny lady takes on the Funny Girl.
In an exclusive video from the new documentary American Masters: The Boomer List, airing Tuesday on PBS (9 p.m. ET), Rosie O'Donnell hilariously channels Barbra Streisand.
"The record my mother loved the most was A Happening in Central Park," says O'Donnell, launching into "Marty the Martian" and "Second Hand Rose" a la Streisand. "She loved I could sort of do the accent."

Barbra Streisand, unsurprisingly, has very fancy friends.
Sitting in a New York hotel room with her doggy Sammie waiting patiently nearby, she tells a story about an evening with Liza Minnelli at fashion designer Donna Karan's home.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch's Neil Patrick Harris isn't the only big TV star up for a Tony Award Sunday night, but give him credit – he is the only TV star nominated for playing the role of a transgender East German glam-rocker.
In honor of Harris's transformation, we've decided to see what the How I Met Your Mother star looks like posing with his gender-flipped self, along with an octet of actors who – whether they played trans characters, or just cis folk forced to cross-dress by the demands of plot – also became their own personal Orlandos.
