Yep, that’s Oscar-winning actress (for “Ghost” in 1990) Whoopi Goldberg you see in the Nurtec “Big News” ads. Goldberg has a long resume of interesting parts and unusual appearances on stage, as well as on the big and small screens during her 40-plus-year-long career. Among the accolades listed in her resume, she’s appeared on Broadway and won a Grammy in 1985 for her one-woman show, appeared as Guinan on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and won a Tony for co-producing a 2002 revival of “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” according to Broadway World.
Add on a Daytime Emmy received in 2007 for her 14-year-long co-moderating stint on ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” (according to IMDb) and Goldberg is one of sixteen entertainers who can claim they have accomplished an EGOT. She even taught comedy acting to Courtney Love, according to a Glamour Magazine interview. Now that’s what we call well-rounded.
