Whoopi:

I Smoked WEED

Before My Oscar Speech!

3/24/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi Goldberg smoked a BIG, FAT JOINT before she won her Oscar in 1991 -- and was stoned off her ass during the victory speech ... so said the actress herself in never-before-seen footage obtained by TMZ.

Whoopi Goldberg

An unabashed Whoopi dropped the bombshell during a voice-over recording session for the movie, "The Pagemaster" back in 1992.

Whoopi explained how she smoked a "wonderful joint" to help calm her nerves before winning the Best Supporting Actress award for "Ghost" ... and was so high during the award show, she had to mentally coach herself on to the stage. 

Whoopi Goldberg WeedAfter the Oscars, Goldberg says she got a call from her mother -- who could tell Whoopi had smoked weed because of her "glistening eyes."

Whoopi noted, "Just because I do it doesn't mean you should do it."

Check out Whoopi's speech -- can you tell she was baked?

This would be a great story, TMZ, if it were 1992. It's not. This isn't worthy of a post tonight.

Frankly.. that is BS about her being HIGH on her Oscar speech.... She's Stoked (if anything).. on WINNING - Who wouldn't be? It's obvious this is merely an ATTENTION GRABBER... since she's been floating in the wind... away from popularity.. Including on The View. Watch it yourself !

This was back when Whoopi had a personality and was energetic and funny. She seems comatose any time I see her on tv now.

She was a great actress but the weed ruined her career. Now she wears a potato sack and sneakers on that stupid show having to listen to that spaz Elizabeth Republican parroting Sarah Palin every day. That dumb B is going to drive poor Whoopi insane.

Weed and cocaine are like doping für athletes.
The show might be ok, but i don't want to know it.

My repect for these personalities goes below zero, cause during der active time they have a big mouth, make big bucks and are funny....and later when the show is over, they confess they were high and beating their wives/husbands at home.....and write a biography.
A biography which says: I had a bad time when i won the oscar and i feel sad that i had to take drugs.
Ask the other people who did not take drugs to get the advantages and who did not make this money.

What's with all the BS posts of advertising crap?

Whoopi is an idiot, but she doesn't seemed stoned at all, maybe on meth or coke, but not stoney. Plus, who cares. Nothing will beat Anna Nicole's wastoid presentation on that one award show that of course I cannot recall...
