Whoopi Goldberg STILL Angry At New York Times

| Filed under: TV NewsWhoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Seriously NYT

As we reported earlier, Whoopi Goldberg has felt slighted by the omission of her Oscar in an article written for the New York Times.

And she's still super pissed about it, even though there have been two sets of explanations sent out for the lack of Whoopi lurve.

Here's one about the author herself:

"And Dargis emailed the New York Observer and defended her article. Dargis said that the "main focus" of the piece was what has happened since Denzel Washington and Halle Berry won Oscars in 2002."

Dargis said specifically:

"It's a shame that Ms. Goldberg and her co-hosts opted to concentrate on a perceived slight rather than address a far more urgent issue: the lack of racial diversity in contemporary American cinema."

Whoopi, in response, said:

"You shouldn't have to read a story five times to get the meaning. It's an erasure. I've made 50 movies, and no mention?"

While we understand the basic issue here, we def think it's time to move on. The explanations given do make sense, and it seems like they didn't mean it as a slight against Whoopi specifically!

Whoopi, bb, let's get past this and move on to the next topic for the View!!

Thoughts??

    THIS BITCH REALLY NEEDS TO SHUT UP. DARGIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, HE FOCUSED IN ON TWO MAIN (AND BETTER THAN WHINNY WHOOPI) ACTORS. FOR FUCK SAKES, SHE WAS ON HOLLYWOOD SQUARES. HOW LOW CAN SHE GOOOOOOOOOOO?

    "Moving on" or "getting over it' is what allows journalists to make the same mistakes and get away with them! If Whoopie Goldberg was a white actress who has made 50 films and has an academy award shed be better recognized and treated1 I mean, really? and Academy award winning actress on the View!???Susan Sarandon still gets work!

    She must be really insecure to get so upset about this.

    Ms Goldberg: Just leave it be and enjoy your life.

    Get over yourself.
    Better yet go cry on that woman beater Mel Gibson shoulder who you support.
    He's always been nice to me, he's never been racist to me, he's never hit
    me… So I guess that means he has never done it to anyone and all the documented proof is fabricated.

    Luv ya girlfriend, but shut up already. You did a job, and you got paid for it, just like the rest of us do. I am really sick and tired of performers putting themselves above everyone else, like they are some kind of a hero or something. And stop whining about the plight of the black woman, because you are hurting the cause. Talk about what you have achieved, as black women, not about what you have not achieved.



  6. 6

    Soothe, shut up, sweetie. You are a good friend, Whoopie, to stand by a friend in his darkest hour. And you, Soothe, do not know these people, or if the evidence is fabricated or not, so stay the hell off of future juries. It's idiots like you that wrongfully convict innocent people. Those audio tapes could have been spliced, and only a forensic examination can determine that, not you. Geez, think for yourself instead of just swallowing all the sensational media.

    ^^^^^ What a crock!! Get over it already! A lack of racial diversity? You can't turn on the TV anymore without seeing TV shows about Black people, staring Black people…made for Black people. You name it!

    There's the BET. If there was a White Entertainment Network, we'd be called racist! This is a crcok and we are fed up with it. STOP COMPLAINING AND BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE! There are more Black movies, TV shows, commericals Rap stars you name than any race! Geesh people… stop this victimhood crap!

    ^^^^^ Unbelievable!! Are you freaking serious!! Yeah, White America froced Whoopi to go on the View. Yeah. Your comment is pathetic and sad! Get real! Did you ever stop to think she WANTED to be a host on the View!? No, instead, you have to project your OWN insecurities onto her and blame White America for the fact that Whoopi is a host on the View. DISGUSTING!

    Re: uraPIGperez
    Unlike you I did not need to rant insults at people. However, what I will do is give you your own words back to you because they apply to you also, unless
    of course you have personal inside info as a close friend of the parties involved…."you do not know these people, or if the evidence is fabricated or not, so stay the hell off of future juries"
    I am entitled to my opinion and to post it just like you are.
    Besides his racsit nasty foul mouthed comments have been well document by the media out in public… regarless of the taped conversations with OG.
    The only way someone would support those kinds of racist , sexist comments are if your views are the same. There is no excuse for them drunk, sober or drugged. They should not be tolerated.



  10. 10

    Oh for pete sake. They have to get Elizabitch H off of the View. Whoopi is turning out to be just like her. Whine anyone?



  11. 11

    WHOOPI…YOU SHOULD BE PISSED.AND WHAT EVER HAPPENNED TO.."I SCREWED UP" "I AM SO SORRY"..NO CLASS….



  12. 12

    BTW.SINCE WHOOPI IS ONE OF VERY FEW WHO ARE IN THE "EGOT" CATAGORY…….SHE WON AN EMMY…GRAMMY..OSCAR..AND A TONY…TAKE THAT…SHE HAS ACHIEVED THEM ALL…YEP.YOU WERE DISRESPECTED….

    In response to your comments about BET and seeign black people everywhere, you are a tad off, you see black Hip Hop stars everywhere not actresses? name a single black actress you know who has beeen in a major film/mainstream studio film in the last two years playing a lead role! do not mention Zoe Saldhana (if you even know hher) from Avatar, as she was covered in blue paint anf her characater was a dramatized tribal princess waiting to be saved her white male knight!

    This year, niot a single person of colour was nominted at the oscars1 you might arge they dont make good ffilms, I argue they dont have room to make films unleess you are Halle Berry. Have you seen the high eend publications tht work putt film stars on their covers? W magazine, Vogue, all fash magazines that support actrtesses, there no people of clour, the last time ELLE had Gabourey Sidibe of precious fame, and her skin was lightened.

    People re quick to label others as 'playing victims" when they speak up against racial issues. Thats the very nature of racism, a racist would rather have the affected too embarssed to speak up because they will display the very same qualities you as the racist afforded them , such as "loud,unruly, uncivilized, lazy, victims"! this is you Paulie-andd no Im not calling you names, just insinuating!enjoy sweets!



  16. 16

    That wig! Whoopi is not lady, but we know that. Beign rude and self promoting is backfiring.



  17. 17

    Seems like there is a lot of ego involved at this point.

    Re: uraPIGperez – I do agree with this, celebrities put themselves on a cloud like they are gods are something. That's why the only award show I watch is the Oscars, because all award shows are just events where celebrities get to boast and brag about their "very important" accomplishments.
    Also, black women are only 6% of the population in the US, so the rarity of black women in film is not only because of racism (which I do agree is definitely part of it) but mainly because statistically there are significantly fewer black actresses in Hollywood. That is just a fact.
    However, I am sick of Halle Berry- I get it, you have nice boobs and you like to show them off and get nude every chance you get. I'm over it. You've done ONE good film. Besides Monster's Ball, what else has been of quality? I love Whoopi, I think she is a fine actress. Bring her back! We need more older women in films and more quality actresses that aren't getting parts simply because of what they look like but who suck at acting.
    The only way black actresses are going to become more main stream Hollywood actors is if they do films for the general population and not specifically for a black audience. And when these movies start being made can the actresses actually be BLACK? and not just black actresses who look as white as possible?

    WHOOPI THE GHETTO ASS BIATCH CANT FUCKING READ. IT SAID "SINCE DENZEL AND HALLE WON THEIR OSCARS IN 2002." WHOOPI BITCH WON HER OSCAR IN 1990!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO OF COURSE THE BLACK ASS TWAT HOOD RAT WASNT MENTIONED. NO WONDER TED DANSON DIVORCED HER SOOO MANY FREAKIN YRS AGO AND MARRIED A MUCH BETTER PERSON IN MARY STEENBURGEN. TRUTH…..



  20. 20

    For once you're right. i don't think they did this to her intentionally. Everyone should just move on..



  21. 21

    Re: Fancyhippy – To a certain extent I agree with you on the population being a big factor. I do beleive however studios do not mke films for wider audiences, they make them for white aduiences and the res just have to fill in the gaps.

    The few actresses that are in hollywood are not in roles that command any academy respect and that has nothing to do with population or talent.Has everything to do with that whit males own studios and do not write roles for people of colour.

    About Halle Berry, she is not the only actress to take her chlothes off, thats another debate, Charlize theron, nicole kidman, anne hatthaway have done the same thing. Halle Berry made a tv film called Dorothy Danrdige and this year she was nominted for a golden globe for her role in Frankie and Alice, did you know that?



  22. 22

    It is also easy to use the population as an excuse for the abscene of black women on film but some of the best actresses in Hollywood are not even American, but they have been welcomed into hollywood based on talent and it certainly helps to be white. so its not about the present size of the american population , if producers can hire Kate Winslet, Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Hellen Mirren,Marion Cortillard, Sienna Miller, all of whom are not American, they can certainly hire the few 6% from the american population!

    Gawd, she/he is One Ugly Dyke….



  24. 24

    It's sad that Whoopi is illiterate - when is she going to admit that she was WRONG and is sorry for the mistake?



  25. 25

    Whoopie should get over herself, nobody cares.

    i love how almost every ethnic group has award shows just for their ethnicity and they complain when there isn't "enough" diversity in the grammys, emmys, etc..wow..



  28. 28

    When you are reading it five times just to look for your name, it's no wonder you don't understand the article. Whoopi's ego is out of control.



  29. 29

    Whoopi needs to shut the fuck up, take a chill pill, read the NYTimes article on Judi Dench (to get a first-hand lesson in humility and class), and then she needs to just disappear. She's too old to act like such a whiny, sniveling, asshole.



  30. 30

    The only thing that upsets me is how can anyone with a brain watch the VIEW? What a bunch a knuckle heads. Everyone talking over each other and saying nothing. The View equals fat house wives having nothing to do but lay around and baby sit there knuckle head kids.



  31. 31

    Re: tracker – Good one! Another was Chita Rivera, a very talented Latina. I use newspapers to cover the bottoms of my bird cages.



  32. 32

    Whoopi's ego dictates that any mention of the Academy Awards without an accompanying mention of her name is a "slight" and "personal offense". She said the same thing when they did a video about previous Oscar hosts and left her out. It's sad to realize about someone I really liked, but the woman is obviously an egomaniac who needs to be brought down a peg or two. She's not Rosa Parks, as much as she'd like you to think she is.



  33. 33

    I watched The View that day and I felt Whoopi was way too full of herself. People are struggling to keep their jobs and homes and her ego is hurt over a stupid story? Then I gagged listening to Elizabitch kiss her a$$. Whoopi needs to check her ego at the door!

    34

    She IS concentrating on 'the lack of racial diversity in contemporary American cinema.' They left her off the damn list. Was it article writing brain fart oversight?



  35. 35

    what is the view and how relevant can whoopie be if she is yapping in daytime? oy vay shut it!



  36. 36

    Wasn't Whoopi the first AA woman to win an Oscar since Hattie McDaniels??
