"The Color Purple" is my favorite movie of ALL time, and both Whoopi and Oprah were ROBBED that year of the Academy Awards that they so RICHLY deserved!!! I will NEVER understand why the Motion Picture Academy shut out this magnificent movie when it came time for handing out trophies.

They both gave some of the BEST performances of the 1980s. Oprah is actually a WONDERFUL actress, and I will definitely be watching this episode--or TIVOing it!!!

Oprah was pretty damn good in "The Women of Brewster Place" too.

Yeah, Ryan-Scott-

In almost every movie I have seen Oprah in, she dives into character 100%.

I LOVE her, and still want her to adopt me, even though I am a grown-assed man!

LOL!

The Color Purple is also my favorite movie of all time. I have never understood it's neglect by the academy. The talk back then was it's misogynistic view of men....... one that men of that time actually was deserved. Besides not all the men in the Color Purple were misogynists. Harpo and Shugs husband and Shug's father were all decent men.
My my 25 years! "Miss Sophia's back!"

I hope we find out why Whoopi wasn’t at Oprah’s Legends Ball Weekend back in 2006. I’ve always wondered about that.

My favorite line is "It gonna rain on yo head," as Harpo falls through the ceiling to the floor making a larger hole than when he started.It's a line that comes in handy alot in life lol.
