#OscarsSoWhite is the hashatag that trended in Twitter recently, and since is being called mass realisation.
Social media has exploded with outrage since the Oscar nominations, people are criticising this year’s Academy Awards because the artists who were nominated are predominantly white.
Many complaints are coming including those outraged that “Selma” picked up the Best Film category nomination, but then the Academy snubbed lead actor David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay.
Selma only got two Academy Awards nominations; people believe the lead actor and director should have got nominated.
#OscarNoms is now trending in Twitter, but people are still tweeting using the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. One tweet said, “Why are people getting the ars*, there are award shows for black people only.” Other people have said, what about MOBO or 365Black Awards, these are predominantly black people.
