Bio

Whoopi Goldberg is an American actress, comedian, radio presenter, host, and author.

Goldberg is one of only 10 individuals who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award, counting Daytime Emmy Awards.

She is the second African American female performer to win an Academy Award for acting (the first being Hattie McDaniel). She has won two Golden Globe Awards.

On the August 1, 2007 broadcast of The View, Barbara Walters introduced Goldberg as the show's new moderator as of September 4. Meredith Vieira and Rosie O'Donnell previously held the position.

In October 2007, Goldberg announced on Larry King Live that she would be retiring from acting because she is no longer sent scripts. "You know, there's no room for the very talented Whoopi. There's no room right now in the marketplace of cinema," Goldberg told King.
