Sunny Hostin mentioned there were women “nominated in the director category.” Elizabeth explained that Cocaine Bear had “a lot of CGI because of the stereotype that women aren’t interested in the technological aspect of movies.” She added that some people assume “women’s brains don’t do math.” People still assume women don’t like math or technology.

The panel laughed. Whoopi Goldberg brought up the Oscar nominations. She didn’t get a nomination for Till. She only brought up the other nomination that was “women” and “women of color.” Whoopi gritted her teeth at the camera as she subtly talked about her snub.

“Just to be clear, there were several movies that were ignored that were directed by women, women of all colors,” Whoopi Goldberg explained. “Just saying, with a smile on my face. I’m not upset.”

People could tell that she was talking about herself. The actress pointed at herself, which showed a sarcastic smile. Whoopi made it look like she was smiling. However, she was probably screaming on the inside.

Addresses Till Oscars snub live on The View

In January, Whoopi Goldberg addressed her snub live on The View just hours after the nominations. The 2023 Oscar nominations list came out earlier that morning. Whoopi admitted that she wasn’t happy about her snub. In addition, the Academy didn’t recognize director Chinonye Chukwu.

“Before we start off, we just want to celebrate the talented artists and filmmakers who were nominated for Oscars this morning,” Whoopi Goldberg said before kicking off the show. “Unfortunately, my film, Till, was not nominated, but we do want to congratulate all the nominees because many of them have been here and it’s wonderful to say congrats, so that’s what we’ll do.”

She received applause after her statement. Till didn’t receive any nominations in the top categories such as Best Director or Best Picture. The film’s star Danielle Deadwyler, who played Emmett Till’s mother, Mamie, could lead the Best Actress nominees. In the film, Whoopi Goldberg stars in the film as Emmett’s grandmother, Alma Carthan.

Back in October 2022, she addressed a movie critic who wrote about her “distracting fat suit.” Whoopi confirmed that she wasn’t wearing a fat suit. She was embracing her natural body in the movie.
