EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg weighed in on all of the chatter surrounding the Oscar nominations and who got snubbed with a reality check, “Everybody doesn’t win.”
‘There Are No Snubs’ – Whoopi Goldberg
Following the announcement of the Oscar nominations on Tuesday there has been an outcry from fans of The Color Purple who were upset Fantasia and Taraji P. Henson did not receive nominations.
But, the shizznit hit the fan when Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie didn’t receive Oscar nominations for Barbie, but Ryan Gosling did for his role of “Ken” in the film.
While discussing Barbiegate on “The View” Sara Haines asked Whoopi Goldberg, “When does it become a snub,” as she pointed out that saying someone was snubbed implies someone who was nominated “shouldn’t be there.”
Whoopi responded saying, “Here’s the deal….everybody doesn’t win!”
“There are no snubs…not everybody gets a prize,” she added.
The most important point Whoopi Goldberg made was, “Movies are subjective. The movies you love may not be loved by the people who are voting.”
Watch a clip of the convo on “The View” below.
While I totally understand the point Whoopi Goldberg is making in regard to the Oscar nominations, it still is very disappointing to see great talent and projects seemingly get overlooked.
I propose votes for Oscar nominations and winners should be cast by the general public who go out to watch and spend their money to support these films.
