The Academy Awards is noted for being the most prestigious award-giving ceremony in Hollywood. Celebrities from all walks of the entertainment world gather to celebrate and honor the most distinguished actors and actresses in the world.

But in Whoopi Goldberg’s case, it’s the perfect time to be intoxicated with pot. A video has recently circulated on the internet showing the award-winning actress admitting that in her 1992 acceptance of the best actress award for the movie ‘Ghost,’ she was stoned.

In the TMZ clip, she was even caught saying smoking pot is one of her habits. Her mother would know when she was high when her eyes start glistening. This would eventually lead to long discussions and scolding, courtesy of her mother.

The 55-year-old actress explains that she was very anxious at the time when the video was taped and that she needed to relax. So she smoked what was left of her “homegrown,” since she never expected to win, anyway.

She got the surprise of her life when Denzel Washington suddenly called her name out as the recipient of the best actress award. Being intoxicated, she wasn’t even sure she would be able to go up the stage and receive her award. Despite her predicament, Whoopi says all she could think of at that time was “okay, up the stairs... around to the podium... there are millions of people, pick up the statue, get the statue."

This day, Goldberg has given a piece of advice on her latest scandal. With so many having access to the web and could easily watch her video, Goldberg says “I know you're not supposed to admit that you smoke pot, but I don't drink alcohol. Just because I do it doesn't mean you should."
