How come Whoopi Goldberg was never on SNL?


by Anonymousreply 4407/28/2013

She didn't need it.

by Anonymousreply 110/11/2012

She's never hosted? That is surprising.

by Anonymousreply 210/11/2012

She probably doesn't realize that it is still on.

by Anonymousreply 310/12/2012

Because she's not funny.

No... wait ... That would seem to make her a perfect fit.

by Anonymousreply 410/12/2012

I meant as a regular...back when she did her one woman show with all those characters...she'd have seemed a natural.

No Talent!!!!

People claim Tom Cruise has never conquered his dyslexia with his religion so he couldn't read the teleprompter. Maybe Whoopi has similar problems. Does she keep her own notes while on The View? You can tell she doesn't really read much by the dumb shit she spews.

She has nothing to promote? She hasn't starred in a major motion picture in years.

by Anonymousreply 810/12/2012

Maybe because she thinks her turds don't stink?

Because they have white men on the cast who are more than capable of playing black women.

by Anonymousreply 1010/12/2012

No one ever asked her.

by Anonymousreply 1110/12/2012

No, OP means as a cast member back when she was performing, not as a guest host.

Why the fuck would she want to be on that useless piece of crap? Her Broadway debut was directed by Mike Nichols and then she went into The Color Purple not long after. Why would she need to be the member of an ensemble where she would have to fight for screen time and get no respect. There had never been a black female star on SNL because they'd rather throw a wig on Garret or Kenan and call it a night, that's how important black women are to them.

Excuse me?

by Anonymousreply 1410/12/2012

What did Whoopi do pre-Broadway? She must have been doing her characters somewhere for Mike Nichols to discover her.

(Yes and I see now that she went right from Bway into The Color Purple.)

"There had never been a black female star on SNL"

I guess they were never really used that much r18....Vance was only on 1 year I think.

If it's good enough for Tyler Perry...

1) She's a bitch

2) She's black

3) She's a bitch

4) She's a woman

5) She's a bitch

6) She's ugly

7) She's a bitch

8) Even Jean Stapleton called her a bitch

9) She's a bitch

10) In case I forgot to mention...SHE'S A BITCH

Because it takes Whoopi forever to say anything.

by Anonymousreply 2310/13/2012

Some people are still uptight because Ted Dansen fcked her.

As pathetic as John Travolta is as a human being, I have to say he was one of the most hilarious guest hosts I ever saw.

by Anonymousreply 2502/11/2013

Because she can't read cards or teleprompters. Dyslexia or uneducated? Tammy Cruise's dyslexia made it so he can't host SNL.

by Anonymousreply 2602/11/2013

She had a cameo in the latest one with Justin Bieber.

Lots of famous people haven't OP. Why are you zeroing in on Whoopi?

Jim Carrey actually auditioned as a cast member and was rejected. So was Paul Reubens.

by Anonymousreply 2802/11/2013

Whoopi was never a stand up comic, she did a "show" characters - her broadway show landed her straight into shitty movies so she bypassed the snl route.

by Anonymousreply 2902/11/2013

Some of these comments are hilarious. Does anyone remember Whoopi was once a regular on Hollywood Fucking Squares?

by Anonymousreply 3002/11/2013

Whoopi is horribly overrated.

by Anonymousreply 3102/11/2013

Her getting an Oscar was a bigger joke Than Marissa Tomei getting an Oscar.

by Anonymousreply 3202/11/2013

I have always liked Whoopi. She's taken steps to educate herself that few others in show business have bothered to do. She's a college graduate and does her own thinking. I may not always agree with her, but she's a woman worthy of respect. I really dislike seeing all the disparaging remarks here on DL.

How come? Because maybe there's a God after all.

Can someone start a thread on how AnnE made a fool of herself at the BAFTA's last night.

This article could have been lifted from Datalounge!

A black woman taking on the faux name of "Goldberg" tells you all you need to know about her awareness of the black servant/wealthy jew dynamic and it is all you need to know about her private torments. Yawners. So tired, yawn.

by Anonymousreply 3602/11/2013

They call her Whoopi because she farts a lot.

by Anonymousreply 3702/11/2013

She's a college graduate. So idk y people are saying shit like she can't read and stuff.

by Anonymousreply 3807/27/2013

Because she is a Negroe.

by Anonymousreply 3907/27/2013

Somewhere along the line she's lost her sense of humor.

The View is painful to watch.

by Anonymousreply 4007/27/2013

What idiot attempted to mention all the black female cast members and forgot Maya Rudolph? Whoopi G wasn't a cast member on SNL because in her prime she was too busy winning an Oscar and starring in movies written just for her.

by Anonymousreply 4107/27/2013

well most of the hosts seem to be white and most of those white hosts seem to be male. SNL was so much better in the 80s and even 90s. It's a shit hole now. The lack of diversity is a joke, especially given that most news stories these days involve men and women of various backgrounds.

by Anonymousreply 4207/27/2013

Why should she appear on her second sinking ship?

by Anonymousreply 4307/28/2013

Every person with dreadlocks I've ever come in contact with smelled to high heaven. It didn't matter what race they were, they stunk. Dreadlocks are nasty.
