THE View was snubbed for a 2022 Daytime Emmy Award in another unfortunate turn of events for the show after fans demanded presenter Whoopi Goldberg is “fired.”
The series lost out to The Kelly Clarkson Show, which cleared the board with a host of wins at the ceremony, but most noticeably in the category of Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show.
American Idol winner Kelly also scored a gong by triumphing in the Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host section, where her rivals included The Drew Barrymore Show, Live With Kelly and Ryan and the Today Show With Hoda and Jenna.
The happy night for the Breakaway singer, whose friend Alex Duda collected her awards on her behalf, came after The Sun exclusively told of The View’s plummeting audience figures.
The View presenter Whoopi, 66, has also faced backlash with fans over her controversial comments in recent months.
The Sun can exclusively reveal ratings for the week of June 6 tot Junie 10 have declined compared to recent years.
