On the win, Sunny Hostin, in her acceptance speech said: "I envision a world that seeks to reign above pettiness, divisiveness, and hatred. I envision a world, not of fences and barriers but a world where these protests lead to equality and the recognition of humanity for each, regardless of skin color."

There were mixed responses from fans after the announcement. "I'm beyond excited for 'The View'. This year you all have gone above and beyond each and every day. Thank you Whoopi, Joy, Sunny and Meghan. It’s all 4 of you together that made this award possible" a fan tweeted. "YAY! Congratulations!!!!" wrote another. "Congratulations ladies of The View!
