Whoopi Goldberg expressed her concern about ‘The View’ not being invited to the Oscars by ABC. Her sentiments have caused a lot of attention after she attended the Oscar’s ceremony on Sunday.

“We are the only show—and I hate to ring my own bell, but what the hell—‘The View’ is the only show that has an Oscar winner on the panel and I thought it was a crying shame that we weren’t there.”

She continued to comment on how her experience at the Oscar’s transpired along with criticizing ABC on their decision not to invite the “The View” panel.

“I had a great time at the Oscars. I want to say two things,” Goldberg continued on Tuesday. “One is directed toward ABC. ABC, [it] was a shame to walk down that red carpet and see every other ABC show, daytime show represented — except for Rachael Ray — and we weren’t there.”

Goldberg praised Barbara Walters who has covered the Oscar’s in the past.  Walters expressed her views on the way ABC treated the show as well.

‘The View’ was created 17 years ago,” Walters said. “Not that I’m going to be here forever, but I can gripe too. We don’t get promos the way other — we’re sort of the step-children [of ABC].”

“Bill [Geddes] and I have done Academy Award specials year after year,” she added. “But, you know, we’re still here, Whoopi, and we’re very proud of you,” said Walters.

The daytime show ‘The View’ co-host panel includes Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, and Jenny McCarthy that appears weekdays at 11 EST. Goldberg, who presented awards at the Oscars Sunday, has the platform to influence her view on different topics. This particular topic that has hit home for her and the panel will be interesting to see how it will affect the next Oscar go around.
