Whoopi and Barbara Walters slam ABC

Whoopi Goldberg got to present at Sunday's Academy Awards, but she still says that the night could have gone better.

On Tuesday's episode of The View — Goldberg's first after returning from Los Angeles — the Oscar winner called out ABC for not inviting the women of The Viewto help cover the Oscars red carpet. ABC's red carpet team included personalities from other daytime shows like Good Morning America and Live with Kelly and Michael.

"ABC, [it] was a shame to walk down that red carpet and see every other ABC daytime show represented -- except for Rachael Ray -- and we weren't there," Goldberg said. "We are the only show -- and I hate to ring my own bell, but what the hell -- The View is the only show that has an Oscar winner on the panel, and I thought it was a crying shame that we weren't there."

Goldberg also chastised the network for not including Barbara Walters in their coverage in light of the many Oscar specials she has hosted for ABC over the years. "Barbara, every year you did a wonderful Oscar coverage and Oscar special, and I'm just saying, ABC, I thought it was a bit of a shame because I saw everybody else there and I didn't see these women," Goldberg continued as she pointed to her co-hosts.

Walters shared Goldberg's sentiment and added fuel to the fire by highlighting the lack of attention ABC has paid to the daytime chat fest. "We don't get promos," Walters said.  "We're sort of the stepchildren [of ABC]."
