Her Best Supporting Actress Oscar was for her portrayal of Oda Mae Brown in the 1990 film, “Ghost” that starred Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. That is listed on Whoopi’s IMDB Awards page, as is her 2009 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host, that she shared with “The View” co-hosts, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
Vicki got it right. She added $2,200 to finish with $8,000.
Michael came up with Bette Midler. He lost his $3,201 bet and had $7,599 left.
Justin also got it right. His $3,801 wager made today’s winning total $21,601. His 4-day winnings are $62,401.
