Whoopi Goldberg PISSED Over NY Times Oscar Snub

2/14/2011 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

"there's a tear in my beer"! Pretty soon she can do voice overs of a car revving it's engine the way her voice is from smoking at least she will be able to work at something.

@Canadian Fan ... just so you know, her real name is Caryn Elaine Johnson. (not Margaret as you "reported") I would suggest getting that fact correct before asking her to answer any questions ask by a POS like yourself. Fact number 2: She won the Oscar (whether you think it was deserved or not) she should be upset that she was not included in an article about BLACK OSCAR WINNERS.

I can't believe this is 2011 and people are so mean. I was always taught treat people like you want to be treated. Whoopi is a good person who tells it like it is, sorry if other people are so closed minded. She has EARNED everything she get's!!! She has every right to be upset and the color of her skin should not matter. Get a life people sorry your so unhappy.

So some of you are commenting that Whoopi was left out because of her race? It was a list of BLACK actresses who had won Oscars. The stupidity of claiming her exclusion was because of race is blinding.

Fact check yourself, Whoopi. It was 50 years between the time Hattie McDaniel won her Oscar and you won yours - not 70.

Hey Whoopi - maybe if you weren't such a self-righteous douchebag, people would actually care about you or what you think.

Most of these posters are outright insane if you think Whoopi isn't one of the most talented people in the industry. She's one of VERY FEW people that have the distinguished EGOT--meaning, she's won an EMMY, GRAMMY, OSCAR and TONY.

The article in question was about black oscar winners--how could the author leave Whoopi out? It really doesn't make any sense and you don't have to be a fan of her work to realize there is something wrong with that.

I don't blame her for being angry about it.

What happened to her? She used to be funny. Ever since she's been on the View, seems that all her happiness has been sucked out of her. Always seems so angry. It's off putting.

This is about her body of work and NOTHING else so get over it people. What the NY Times did was sloppy are irresponsible.
Do any of you have an Oscar? No? Then give it a rest.

I have to agree with her... it is an amazing accomplishment! She won it, she deserves to be recognized! BTW, another person that was not mentioned was Cuba Gooding Jr. for his win in Jerry Maguire.
