Whoopi Goldberg was honored as a Disney Legend at the D23 Expo, making her the only LEGOT recipient ever.
Being an EGOT means an artist has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and a Tony. Itâ€™s an accomplishment for only the most elite people in the entertainment business. Whoopi Goldberg won Emmyâ€™s for The View and hosting AMCâ€™s Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel. She won her Grammy for her album Whoopi Goldberg. Won her Oscar for her role in Ghost. She received her Tony for producing the show Thoroughly Modern Millie.
â€œDisney and I go way back, since I was a little kid, I mean way back,â€ said Whoopi. â€œSo itâ€™s beyond an honor and a joy to become a Disney Legend because everybody knows I love Disney, Disneyland, Disney World, Disney movies, Disney toys and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Whatâ€™s better than this for a Disney-phile? Absolutely NOTHING!â€
Whoopi Goldberg can still be seen live on ABCâ€™s The View five days a week, which is celebrating itâ€™s 20th season. A panel of four women discusses the most popular news while making it entertaining and even a little provocative.
