    While her performance is small at first, she was brilliant in her final courtroom outburst scene. This is a worthy performance for a Guest Actress in a Drama Series nomination. The actor who played the overworked social worker was great too. The episode was expertly written and directed, and of course, Mariska Hargitay was her usual superb and brilliant self (:

    What was great about Whoopi’s performance is that her character is wrong yet we understand why she made the poor decisions; so she was also “right”. This is why I think her work here is worthy of an Emmy nomination.

    (btw, Law & Order: SVU has been great this season; I am really looking forward to next week’s ripped from the headlines episode dealing with police violence in regards to black males. It looks exceptional).

    Was just going to create a thread for this but figured I’d check tosee if there was one already lol. I really liked this episode and the Joe Magaro (who people might recognize from “Taking Chance”…..anyone remember that movie?) was good too. I’m a huge SVU fan so next week looks like a great one too. The season opener (the Robert Durst thing) didnt wow me but the Transgender one with the kid on the bridge was really good.

    She was fine; however, the lead-up to the episode featuring “Whoopi Goldberg in a stunning performance” induced eye-rolls and the feeling that she’ll be campaigning (buying?) her way to EGOT status this year.  The L&O franchise offers many choice roles for character actors who go unnoticed in the guest dramatic fields in favor of stars, so I’ll reserve my judgment until later in the season.

    I was skeptical, especially with the a NBC ad running beforehand.   But her 5 minute monologue was spectacular.  And relevant.  Plus heartbreaking.   I had forgotten just how incredible an actress Whoppi Goldberg is.  And for me to forget I was watching Whoppi and hear and feel the message –  BRAVO !!
