"On her annual Oscar-night special, Walters interviews Elton John, Meg Ryan and Steven Spielberg, whose film Schindler's list is nominated for 12 Academy Awards.

Summary continues: ... ('I wanted to assimilate. I wanted to be like everybody else'); and the pride he now takes in his Jewish heritage"--TV guide. Announced by Joel Fabiani.
