Whoopi Goldberg Inducted as Disney Legend Becoming First LEGOT Recipient

WHOOPI GOLDBERG NAMED A DISNEY LEGEND AT D23 EXPO,

MAKING HER THE ONE AND ONLY LEGOT RECIPIENT!

Whoopi Goldberg is one of a very elite group of artists who is an EGOT, which is an acronym for a person who’s won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. She has won Emmys (as host of AMC’s “Beyond Tara:  The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel,” and a Daytime Emmy for “The View”), a Grammy (“Whoopi Goldberg”), an Oscar (“Ghost”) and a Tony (Producer of “Thoroughly Modern Millie”). Today at D23 EXPO: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, she can add Disney Legend to this impressive list, making her the one and only LEGOT recipient!

“Disney and I go way back, since I was a little kid, I mean way back,” said Whoopi. “So it’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!  What’s better than this for a Disney-phile? Absolutely NOTHING!”

Celebrating a historic 20th season, “The View” is the place to be heard with live broadcasts five days a week with the hottest topics, entertaining and provocative conversations, politics, newsmakers, celebrity guests and the people everyone is talking about. Hilary Estey McLoughlin serves as Senior Executive Producer, Candi Carter is Executive Producer and Brian Teta is Co-Executive Producer. “The View” is directed by Sarah de la O.
