Question: With Emmy nominations coming up, I had a few questions about Orange Is the New Black. What effect if any do you think Season 2 airing just around the time of Emmy voting will have on the show?

Exclusive Video: Barbara Walters Reveals the Biggest Lesson She's Learned on Master Class

Barbara Walters has learned a lot throughout her 50-plus years as a journalist, and on Sunday's episode of Oprah's Master Class, she's sharing the most significant piece of wisdom she can impart on others.  

"The most important thing a journalist or interviewer can do is to listen," she says in the exclusive clip below.
