Whoopi Goldberg Close to Clinching ‘The View’ Extension

7 June 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Whoopi Goldberg looks to be close to extending her contract on “The View” for at least one more year, TheWrap has learned. There was speculation that the Oscar-winning actress was planning to leave the show at the end of this season, but it seems that she has had a change of heart, according to a source familiar with the situation. Goldberg first joined the ABC daytime show in 2007, replacing Rose O’Donnell. She engaged in a much-publicized feud with fellow co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck during the Hot Topics segment of the show, over topics such as abortion and the use of racial. »

7 June 2016 2:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whoopi Goldberg will be back as moderator of “The View” for the show’s 20th season in the fall. The Oscar-winning actress is on the verge of signing a one-year contract extending her time on the show through next summer, Variety has learned.

Oops! The View Co-Hosts Try Fill Dead Air Time After Whoopi Goldberg Accidentally Signs Off Three Minutes Early

7 June 2016 10:33 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If anyone ever doubted The View was live, Whoopi Goldberg disproved that theory Tuesday morning. After the show returned from its final commercial break, she jumped the gun about three minutes early. "Welcome back. We are live-streaming after The View on Facebook Live and we're talking about whether Taylor Swift scared off her last boyfriend Calvin Harris," she said. Goldberg then launched into the topic prematurely. "Apparently she jumped the gun with the marriage thing and the baby talk and freaked him out," she said. "What do you think, Ray?" Raven-Symoné laughed at Goldberg's mistake as she read from the teleprompter. "Well, I think that Disney's Zootopia was just released on »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series

7 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Margo Martindale triumphed in this category with her turn on “The Americans,” a show that has been woefully underrepresented at the Emmys. While she could repeat this year, she will have to battle some fierce competitors in the form of previous winners.

Both Allison Janney [“Masters of Sex”] and Carrie Preston [“The Good Wife”] have won for their roles before. And several potential nominees are previous winners. Diana Rigg was previously nominated here for her work on “Game of Thrones”; she scored a win in 1997 for “Rebecca.” Ellen Burstyn [“House of Cards”] is an Emmy winner in this category for “Law & Order: Svu,” and has seven noms and two wins total. [Don’t forget Burstyn is beloved; she was famously nominated for her work in “Mrs. Harris,” which consisted of fewer than 20 seconds of screen time.]  Laurie Metcalf has three Emmys from “Roseanne,” but her work as the ex-wife of Louis C.K. in “Horace and Pete” is unlike anything we’ve seen her in before. Stockard Channing has won two Emmys, both in 2002, and could score a third for the final season of “The Good Wife. »
