Whoopi Goldberg has accepted an apology from producer Gil Cates for not including her in a montage featuring Oscar hosts during Sunday's Academy Awards telecast.

Cates called her Tuesday and "talked about the fact that he had made an oversight, pure and simple. He said, 'You know I love you,"' Goldberg said Wednesday on ABC daytime talk show "The View."

Goldberg, who called Cates a "great gentleman," accepted his apology.
