The 2015 Academy Award ceremony will be the least diverse (whitest) since 1998.  The snub to Ava Duvernay as Best Director for ‘Selma’ along with David Oyelowo’s snub in the Best Actor category for his portrayal of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has created such an outcry over social media that the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite quickly made its rounds across the Twittersphere and mainstream press this week. Undoubtedly something is amiss in Hollywood with regard to the lack diversity in Hollywood films – so much so that the president (who happens to be African American) of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Cheryl Boone Isaacs has spoken out defending the nominations to settle the storm. Well, that’s simply not gonna cut it. Instead, folks took to social media with one-liners to poke fun at the perceived “white-out” happening with the upcoming show.  Thought it might be fun to note some of the latest one-liners worthy of honorable mention from last night’s Top-Trending hashtag. Enjoy!

And your favorite?
