According to the Huffington Post on March 5, Whoopi Goldberg and the ladies of "The View" have a bone to pick with the ABC network that airs their daytime talk show.

On Tuesday, Goldberg showed her disgust for the network because ABC did not invite someone from "The View" to cover the Oscars last Sunday night.

Goldberg was a presenter, but she criticized ABC for overlooking "The View." Goldberg, who was absent from the show on Monday, said on Tuesday when she returned from Los Angeles:

"I had a great time at the Oscars. I want to say two things. 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 concluded her rant by saying by reminding ABC of the other thing: "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."

Of course, Goldberg, 58, was referring to herself who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1990 for her best supporting role as Oda Mae Brown, the psychic in the romantic film "Ghost" with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.

In fact, Goldberg was the second black woman in the history of the Academy Awards to win an Oscar. The first was Hattie McDaniel who won for "Gone with the Wind" in 1939.

Barbara Walters, co-producer of "The View" expressed her position on the issue as well.
