NEW YORK (AP) – Whoopi Goldberg has accepted an apology from producer Gil Cates for not including her in a montage featuring Oscar hosts during Sunday's Academy Awards telecast.
Cates called her Tuesday and "talked about the fact that he had made an oversight, pure and simple. He said, 'You know I love you,'" Goldberg said Wednesday on ABC daytime talk show "The View."
Goldberg, who called Cates a "great gentleman," accepted his apology.
She said she has "moved on" since choking up on Monday's show when her fellow co-hosts discussed how she was left out of the clip.
The 52-year-old actress-comedian hosted the Oscars in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2002.
ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.
