Can you believe it? Versatile and talented EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg is now 62 years old. But Whoopi is perhaps best known as a comedic actress. After scoring an Oscar nod for her dramatic debut in "The Color Purple" in 1986, she finally won an Oscar for her role as the outrageous psychic Oda Mae Brown in "Ghost" in 1991. Soon after, Whoopi played a lounge singer-turned-nun in the box office smash "Sister Act" in 1992, spinning a cult classic sequel. Which comedy is her best?

Below is the synopsis of "Ghost," per IMDB

After a young man is murdered, his spirit stays behind to warn his lover of impending danger, with the help of a reluctant psychic.

Whoopi played Oda Mae Brown in "Ghost." Moviegoers and critics alike loved her as the hilariously outrageous psychic who helps a spirit warn his girlfriend of the danger she's in. She won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1991, becoming only the second black actress to ever winafter Hattie McDaniel in "Gone with the Wind."

Check out this hilarious scene from "Ghost" below. 

Below is the synopsis of "Sister Act," per IMDB

When a worldly singer witnesses a mob crime, the police hide her as a nun in a traditional convent where she has trouble fitting in.

"Sister Act" was originally supposed to go to Bette Midler. Whoopi got the part and slayed it as Deloris Van-Cartier/Sister Mary Clarence, a lounge singer-turned-nun. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical in 1993. And the film itself grossed more than $231 million globally. The sequel, "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit," didn't achieve the same success, but is still a cult classic to many millennials.
