Whoopi Goldberg PISSED Over NY Times Oscar Snub

The New York Times did a piece on African-American Oscar winners this weekend ... and left Whoopi Goldberg out -- which did NOT sit well with the "View" host.

Calm down Whoopi. It's an Oscar. It's not the Medal of Honor.

Good for you, Whoopi. Tell is like it is. You were before Halle Berry .... and the first black woman to receive this award in 70 years .....

What a slap in the face! The NY Times should have known better and should apologize to this very talented actress.

Sounds like she is trying to get another Oscar for this performance. She is grown and needs to get over it. She got her award and received recognition therefore she need to be recognized everytime the word Oscar is mentioned as I feel she is implying.

Hey Whoopi (aka real name Margaret) ... without looking it up on google, tell me "Who the SECOND white person was to win an Oscar" ?

Since YOU do NOT know, then why do you expect others to always remember that you were the SECOND black person to win?

Get over yourself ... and THATs "the bottom line" (her fav saying on the View).

@ kp - you wrote: "ernie, you call her a talented actress, what drug are you on - Posted at 10:09 AM on Feb 14, 2011 by kp"

I would say receiving an Academy Award pretty well speaks for itself.... and the fact that she also was in 30 other films.

Now ... let's see. What more proof does one need? The woman can act... and her peers seem to think so as well.

When did you last receive your award?

This woman is beyond disgusting. Hijacking air time for the most disgusting performance in self praise I have ever witnessed! She is lucky to be on The View - so self important and the biggest know all (along with Joy and Elizabeth) on tv. Who cares? Yawn - Oscar nominated/winner Whoopie. Haha, isn't her name plain old Caryn Johnson? What a plonker?! Enough!!!

I kinda like Whoopi. She's a flaming Liberal, but I still like her. Heck yea, she should be upset. To include that wing-nut Halle Berry and not mention Whoopi is idiotic.

And no, Whoopi wasn't given the Oscar because she was a "token black" as some ignoramus mentioned. Whoopi EARNED that oscar for her excellent performance in the movie Ghost.
