Giving a shout-out to her co-workers, Goldberg promised to discuss the matter further upon her return to the show, which she hinted would be soon.

"Yes, it's me, I am here, I am up and moving around. I'm not dead", said Goldberg, describing her illness - which involved a range of issues including excessive fluid in both lungs. "I don't think she's going to be able to host the Oscars and I'm sure she's very disappointed". In the message, Goldberg says, "It's me!" She thanked her fans for the good tidings and mentioned how even her not-so-ardent fans were sharing good thoughts. "But for now, it's brilliant..." "This has been interesting, and I'll tell you all about it when we're all at the table".

Goldberg blew a kiss in the video recording, as the audience cheered.
