Is it that time of the year already?!

Barbara Walters is hard at work finalizing her list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014. And although celebrities still have a little more than two months to make an impact, the legendary journalist already has a few locked-in picks.

The first prominent name in entertainment to make the list is…Scarlett Johansson!

It's been quite the year for the 29-year-old. In addition to debuting that fabulous pixie cut, the talented actress welcomed a baby girl with fiancé Romain Dauriac in September.  

What's also impressive is the fact that the new mom already has big projects lined up. In addition to starring in the upcoming Avengers movie, Johansson will also appear on the small screen in the period seriesThe Custom of the Country. Nicely done, girl. 

So who else made the prestigious list?

Turns out the one and only Oprah Winfrey will sit down with the former View co-host for an in-depth interview.

In addition, Chelsea Handler and How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris will chat with the famous journalist one-on-one.

"I was absolutely delighted when ABC approached me to do another year of '10 Most Fascinating People,'" Walters said in a statement. "I know we said last year was our last, but there are just too many fascinating people out there…and you never pass up the opportunity to interview Oprah, Neil, Chelsea or Scarlett." We can't argue with that!

Find out who else made the list when the annual special airs Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
