The Oscars were announced this afternoon and snubs were, of course, the first thing everyone was talking about

Carol not getting nominated for Best Picture is a TRAVESTY! #OscarNoms— Gabrielle Bondi (@GabrielleAdelle) January 14, 2016
Quentin Tarantino and Aaron Sorkin were also top of the list
Bit of a snub for Quentin Tarantino in Original Screenplay #OscarNoms— Zoe Linda (@ZoeLinda_) January 14, 2016
Mad Max fans were feeling the love for this year’s nominations, though
Mad Max: Fury Road getting some #OscarNoms love this morning. I'm into it.— Jessica Roy 🦅 (@jessica_roy) January 14, 2016
But they did feel the film was the victim of a major snub too

One guy who wasn’t overlooked – much to everyone’s delight – was Sylvester Stallone
Everyone cheered loudly when they announced Sly Stallone’s nom for best supporting actor 🙂 #OscarNoms

Idris Elba, however, wasn’t so lucky
Btw it's an absolute travesty that Idris Elba wasn't nominated for Beasts of No Nation. That movie was easily one of the best. #OscarNoms— 𝕄 ♪ 𝕁 (@JasperJay40) January 14, 2016
And with no nominations for Beasts of No Nation – and only a screenplay nod for Straight Outta Compton – it didn’t take long for people to point out the lack of diversity in the line-up
Fans of Star Wars were delighted to see The Force Awakens appearing among the nominees
However, they were annoyed it wasn’t in the running for the big one
There was only ONE man everyone was talking about, though…
Leo gonna get it done this year #OscarNoms— Danny (@DAck_34) January 14, 2016
Surely 2016 will be his year? SURELY?
What could possibly go wrong?

At least the Academy got one VERY important thing right, eh?
The winners will be announced at the 88th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday 28th February in Hollywood
