Whoopi Goldberg mad at NYT for leaving her name out of story

LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 22:  (EDITORS NOTE:...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Whoopi Goldberg is angry with the New York Times and two of its critics for failing to mention her name in an article. The article by critics Manohla Dargis and A. O. Scott mentions the names of the past decade's seven black Oscar winners from Halle Berry to Sidney Poitier. Oops – no Whoopi. She had this to say about it on the View:
“I am embarrassed to tell you it hurt me terribly. I — when you win an Academy Award, that's part of what you've done, your legacy. I will always be Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg … This is not hidden information. And to these two critics—who are the head critics of the New York Times—maybe… it's hard not to take it personally."
