In 1991, Whoopi also made history when she took home the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actress for her role as psychic Oda Mae Brown in Ghost. Whoopi was the second African-American woman to receive this honor, and she's one of only four women who've won an Oscar, Emmy®, Grammy® and a Tony®.
Whoopi got her big break in the '80s when she landed the starring role in The Color Purple and touched moviegoers' hearts as Celie, the film's oppressed heroine. This performance earned her her first Oscar nomination.
