'#OscarsSoWhite' surfaced on Twitter on Thursday just after the announcement of the 2016 Oscar nominations.
Twittersphere expressed unhappiness with the fact that no people of colour (black, Hispanic and natives) were among those nominated for the 2016 Oscars.
"Concussion" star Will Smith and Idris Elba of "Beasts of No Nation” were expected to be nominated but were "overlooked".
Here is what Twitterverse said:
If you're someone saying "It should be about talent" please do better. There is so much talent that isn't white & deserving. #OscarsSoWhite— Emily (@elusiveemily) January 14, 2016
