Roger Ebert is a name synonymous with film and excellence. He was the first critic in the game to win a Pulitzer Prize and bravely fought thyroid cancer for more than decade, all while writing his indispensable column to throngs of dedicated readers. Today, he passed away at the age of 70.
Roger Ebert was no stranger to the Oprah Winfrey Show. In 2010, a Scottish company created a program that allowed Roger to "speak" with his own voice using hours of old episodes of Siskel & Ebert & The Movies and other programs he hosted. The Oprah Winfrey Show captured the first time the film critic and his wife Charlie Hammel-Smith heard his new voice. Oprah also turned to Roger for his Academy Award predictions, naturally wanting one of the most acute and polished opinions in the business. Roger was even one of the key forces behind Oprah's success.
Today,we remember one of film's most brilliant luminaries and a dear friend, as Oprah tweeted:

Whether it's a cold and gloomy March 21 in your hometown or just another balmy day, spring has truly arrived.

Harvard University can add one more big name to its already distinguished list of commencement speakers. The university just confirmed that Oprah will be delivering the 362nd Commencement address on May 30.
While this is the first time Oprah will be the principal speaker at Harvard's afternoon exercises, she's no stranger to inspiring college students. Last year, she delivered Spelman College's commencement address.
Harvard President Drew Faust is looking forward to the address. "Oprah’s journey from her grandmother’s Mississippi farm to becoming one of the world’s most admired women is one of the great American success stories, " he told the Harvard Gazette. “She has used her extraordinary influence and reach as a force for good in the world, with a constant focus on the importance of educational opportunity and the virtues of serving others.”
