Celebrity VIDEO: Whoopi Goldberg Chokes Up Over Oscar Montage The first black Oscar host speaks up after she doesn't appear in Sunday night's clip By People Staff Published on February 25, 2008 01:20 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Whoopi Goldberg teared up on ABC’s The View Monday morning after her cohosts pointed out that the Oscar winner (and first black Oscar host) was left out of a montage of great moments from past shows. “Where were you?” Joy Behar asked. Goldberg noted that they also left out host Steve Martin, and Barbara Walters noted that she was featured in another montage for Oscar winners. (Goldberg was nominated for The Color Purple in 1985 and won for Ghost in 1990.) “Undoubtedly, I pissed somebody off once again,” Goldberg said, to which Walters replied, “We think you’re a great host.” “This makes up for it,” Goldberg said, and then walked around the table to give each woman a kiss on the cheek.
