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.

Great display of humility Whoopi. I'm sure the people of Somalia quickly started a hunger strike in response to this travesty of justice.

I am so glad, to have missed that part of the show, today. Whoopi is just so full of herself. I'm also tired of her racist attitude, saying that White people were ticked, that Obama is President. How in the hell does she think he got elected? 20% of the population couldn't have done it, even if every Black man, woman, and child had voted for Obama. It took support and votes from all races, Whoopi. You didn't get famous, simply because Black people thought you were funny; it took all of us. 'Same with many other Black stars.
I'm just sick of your mean comments.

SO STUPID    

ACTUALLY, WHOOPI DID CORRECT HERSELF LATER ON IN THE SHOW AND STATED THAT SHE MISPOKE EARLIER WHEN SHE SAID ITS BEEN 70 YEARS AS ITS ACTUALLY BEEN 50 YEARS SINCE HATTIE MCDANIEL WON THE AWARD... SO PLEASE TRY TO DO SOME FACT CHECKING OF YOUR OWN BEFORE YOU FEEL THE NEED TO PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK FOR (NOT) CORRECTING WHOOPI... ALSO, THIS WOMAN IS ONE OF A VERY FEW WHO HAVE ACTUALLY WON AND RECIEVED AN EMMY, A GRAMMY, AN OSCAR AND A TONY... HOW MANY CELEBRITIES CAN SAY THAT...?

Get over it Whoopi! You have the Oscar so who cares if your not on a list! People wonder why there is such hatred! She is one that starts it!! Don't blame me for what happened years ago! Yes, there are still people that are that way. But you can't take it out one all white people!!!

All of you people telling her that she needs to get over it and that she has an ego need to take a step back and listen to her. The article itself was about African-American Oscar winners. They failed to mention her name which in itself is poor writing as she stated. To the person that said it had been too many years since she won and maybe that's why she wasn't mentioned. It doesn't matter if it was 50 years ago, she still won the award. She WILL always be known as Academy Award Winner Whoopie Goldberg, hell even people that do not win the award are still known as Academy Award Nominee.

She was brilliant in The Color Purple *which she should have won for* and she was brilliant in Ghost *which contrary to another post she did not win because the movie was popular, she won because she was wonderful in that role.

It is not like she is going around saying all the time "I'm an Oscar winner blah blah blah" she very seldom mentions it and her life does not revolve around the fact that she won this award, however it does give her credit and when an article is being written about African Americans winning the award then they better damn well include her.

All you haters should be ashamed of yourselves

The ladies of the View are all extremely full of themselves. All they do is stroke each others egos and their own. I stopped watching because it was nauseating.

Whoa!    

I am glad that she pointed it out. Was it a bit over the top? Maybe... but she earned this award and she has a right to be hurt and upset over it. I think she will get a nice apology - of which she deserves. Remember, "The View" is really about a lot of loyal viewers who are there to reflect and give their point of view (whether we agree or not). If I had a pal who won, they would call me up to say, "you won't believe it..." and that is what she did, she brought us into her circle to share her feelings and thoughts.

It was not an article spacifically about black oscar winners!!!! Prior to commenting, I thought I would actually read the article. In the context of the article and it's timelines and issues it raised, Whoppi's oscar did not fit in the context of the topic. Whoppi needs reading comprehension skills refreshing and an self importance check, prior to going on a rant. Her own advice should be applied to herself, read the article and absorb it's context.

Why is she complaining? She got the recognition for the Oscar win back in '91...give others a chance to shine too. Her attitude really stinks; she thinks she's OWED the fame and recognition. She has no humility, maybe that's why they didn't mention her in the article? Sadly, I don’t think she realizes that. She makes herself out to be a bigger star than she actually is. Couple that with her attitude, and she'll soon be forgotten. She can thank The View if people still talk about her and remember her. Do you see the way she walks onto the View stage..she's the only one who never acknowledges the crowd. Its more so the poor attitude that Whoopi has adopted over the years that has really made me reconsider what a great star she [thinks] she is. She wants to be recognized and respected, yet she can’t even wave hello to the crowd. She’s gripping onto old memories so tightly, she's slowly going to unwind and breakdown in front of our eyes one day soon...look at her reaction to this article..

Love Whoopi! Sometimes I don't agree with her politics but we have enough common beliefs that it doesn't bother me in the least.

She should have been mentioned. She earned that award.
