Whoopi Goldberg wears a pair of Minnie Mouse shoes while walking the carpet at the D23 Legends Awards ceremony held on Friday morning (July 14) in Anaheim, Calif.
The legendary actress and entertainer was a surprise honoree at the event and she is now billed as the world’s first LEGOT if you add the Legends Award to her Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.
“I was born the same year the park opened,” Whoopi said during her acceptance speech. “And my mother always said, ‘One day I’m going to take you kids [to Disney].’”
“Instead, I got to take her,” she added. “Disney made you feel that no matter where you came from, you were welcome.”
