Barbra Streisand honored Barbara Walters on the May 19th, 2000 Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-recorded video. In the video tribute, Streisand said: "What a lifetime, and what a special body of achievement. I take pride that I was half of your very first show and that I was in such good company. Remember? President-Elect and Mrs. Carter? I can actually trace my life in the five interviews I've had of you. In fact, I was so tired of you badgering me about when and if I'd get married again, I did it. Now, what about you? Love, and congratulations."

Reel Models: The First Women of Film

Barbra Streisand hosted and executive produced a brand-new TV documentary special called Reel Models: The First Women of Film, which premiered on American Movie Classics (AMC) on Tuesday, May 30, 2000 (8:00-9:00 p.m.). Co-executive produced with Cis Corman and directed by Emmy Award winners Susan and Christopher Koch (City of Hope), the program profiled the cinema's earliest female pioneers — Oscar-winning directors Dorothy Arzner (in whose name Women In Film presented Streisand with a special award in 1992), Lois Weber (actually the very first woman to direct, produce, write, and act in a theatrical feature back in the early silent era), and Alice Guy (a French film pioneer who invented the director's job), and screenwriter Frances Marion (a two-time Oscar winner who penned Garbo's first spoken words). Academy Award-winning actresses Shirley MacLaine, Susan Sarandon, and Hillary Swank, and Minnie Driver provide on-screen narration for each of the documentary's four segments. Barbra handles the opening and closing segments.

The people there already know about all the great films we've loved you in for 30 years. But do they know how good-hearted you are? How sweet and generous? And what an all-around good person and father you are? And husband, I might add. I congratulate the American Museum of the Moving Image on its salute to you, and I want everyone to know that of all your talents—acting, dancing, piloting planes—the most impressive is your talent as a thoughtful, caring, and loving friend. And I adore you.”
