Whoopi Goldberg on the Oscars controversy: "I won once, so it can’t be that racist."



"The issue is not the Academy. Even if you fill the Academy with black and Latino and Asian members, if there’s no one on the screen to vote for, you’re not going to get the outcome that you want. I won once, so it can’t be that racist. You need directors and producers who will say, 'Hey, what about so and so?' They need to be aware that the picture is not complete."

"You wanna boycott something? Don't go see the movies that don't have your representation. That's the boycott you want. To me, we have this conversation every year. It pisses me off."
