Whoopi Goldberg is one of a very elite group of artists who is an<strong>EGOT, </strong>which is an acronym for a person who’s won an<strong>Emmy, Grammy, Oscar </strong>and<strong> Tony. </strong>She has won    <strong>Emmys</strong> (as host of AMC’s “Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary
Life of Hattie McDaniel,” and a Daytime Emmy for “The View”), a    <strong>Grammy</strong> (“Whoopi Goldberg”), an <strong>Oscar</strong>
    (“Ghost”) and a <strong>Tony</strong> (Producer of “Thoroughly Modern
    Millie”). Today at D23 EXPO: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, she can add
    Disney <strong>Legend</strong> to this impressive list, making her the one
    and only <strong>LEGOT </strong>recipient!

    “Disney and I go way back, since I was a little kid, I mean way back,” said
    Whoopi. “So it’s beyond an honor and a joy to become a Disney Legend
    because everybody knows I love Disney, Disneyland, Disney World, Disney
    movies, Disney toys and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! What’s better than
    this for a Disney-phile? Absolutely NOTHING!”
