    Default Oscar snub leaves Whoopi Goldberg sad, choked up

    NEW YORK (AP) — Whoopi Goldberg seemed sad and choked up on "The View" Monday when her fellow co-hosts discussed how she was not included in a montage featuring Oscar hosts during the Academy Awards telecast.
    The 52-year-old Goldberg has received two Oscar nominations, winning for her role as Oda Mae Brown in 1990's "Ghost." She hosted the event in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2002. She did, however, appear as an Oscar winner in a separate montage Sunday night.
    Goldberg appeared stumped that the academy would leave her out of the one clip, as well as repeat host Steve Martin.
    "Maybe they accidentally lost a clip of you hosting. ... But I think it's wrong," Elisabeth Hasselbeck said. Joy Behar said "being slighted is never fun." Sherri Shepherd wondered if Goldberg had made someone mad.
    "Undoubtedly," Goldberg said, smiling. "Undoubtedly I (bleeped) somebody off yet again. You know what, I don't — I don't know."
    "Hey, we think you're a great host," reassured Barbara Walters, the creator of the ABC chatfest.
    "I think we should do our own montage of you to make up for it," Hasselbeck said.
    "This makes up for it," Goldberg responded, before getting up and kissing each co-host on the cheek. She and Walters embraced.

    Yes, they showed her receiving her Oscar for Ghost, so what's the big deal? They didn't show her absolutely every opportunity they could've, but they didn't slight her.

    Jebus, relax. You have lots of money, fame and a glorious life to live. For a half second 'slight' you'd be willing to trade your smile in for a frown?

    I cannot believe she won an Oscar for Ghost. Ghost?! Seriously. That movie sucked balls. And, as usual, she was just Whoopie playing Whoopie.

    I didn't think Whoopi seemed that upset about it.
    She didn't bring it up, and the other crows wouldn't let
    it drop.

    Not showing Brad Renfro in memoriam was much, much worse imo.

    I didn't like "Ghost" as a movie at all, nor do I think it was her best work. I do think she should've won Best Actress for "The Color Purple," though.

    Giselle ITA - is David Letterman getting pissy for the academy not putting his Uma/Oprah monaloge on the highlight reel yet. Where was Sally Field and her - you really love me speech. Why was Russell Crowe in anything that could resemble a highlight. Marlon Brandos snub of the Academy having a native american accept his award......nup not there. So many people could join whoopi's pity party

    I thought Whoopie had been a shitty host every single time.
