Whoopi Goldberg Forgives Gil Cates

After making the colossal gaffe of omitting Academy Award winning actor Whoopi Goldberg from its celebratory montage of great moments over the 80 years of the Oscar ceremony producer of the program Gil Cates called the talented star to personally apologize for the major mistake.

According to Goldberg, "Gil Cates called me yesterday. He made an oversight, pure and simple."

Whoopi, who is a fabulously multi-talented actress, who is also a skilled comedienne, comic actor, raconteur, radio host, television personality, game show host and producer, one of several co-hosts of the popular and sometimes controversial ABC daytime program The View; and a simply a wonderful all 'round entertainer, graciously accepted.

Goldberg, the former Caryn Elaine Johnson, is counted among an elite group of celebrities. She is one of only ten persons in the world to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award apart from two Golden Globes and two Saturn Awards.

Goldberg also has the distinction of being the first female, first Academy Award winner and the first black to host the prestigious award show's television presentation, not once, but two times.

This is our tribute to her talent. We HEART you Whoopi Goldberg.

Note to Oscar ceremony officials and producers, especially Gil Cates:
Do Not Let This Happen Again!
