No awards for Oscars montage editors: Where's Whoopi?!

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Whoopi Goldberg seemed sad and choked up on ‘‘The View’’ on 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.
