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?

She didn't seem stoned at all to me.......I think she is a big blow hard. She is so immature to brag about pot all the time. Who cares! Do what you want and shut up about it??? She is not near as cool and hip as she thinks she is..........

Actually if you ever watch The View she is pretty open about her smoking habits. Very open. So this is no shock.

It goes a long way to explain her do. But at least the hair distracted you from her mug. Maybe that was the whole point?

She says she smoked weed Before she won her Oscar to calm her nerves so did she now already that she was going to win? Otherwise why do it?

She may have smoked before but she was not high on stage, no way. No matter how good it may have been, she could not have still beeen stoned, what... 2 hours later? Nope, it wears off far faster, once you get moving around it wears off, once you're around a few hundred energized people the effect would have been gone. Had she said she had eaten a cheeba chew (google it), perhaps she might have been blitzed.

Attention seeking Wh*re.
