The 86th Academy Awards have come and gone but the tweets, well, those will endure forever.

Case in point: Ellen’s Twitter-breaking selfie (embedded above), which was crammed with more Hollywood A-Listers than the court side seats at a Los Angeles Lakers game.

Naturally, the Internet has responded in kind (because Internet) and collected below are 9 of the wittiest spoofs, parodies, and retorts to surface thus far…

Newsflash: Black Filmmakers Aren’t Oscar Dark Horses Anymore

The 86th Academy Awards marked a historic night for black filmmakers at the Oscars. It’s the first time a black film – 12 Years a Slave — won best picture; the Academy’s most prestigious award.

It feels old-timey to be discussing race in 2014, but sadly it’s still a relevant issue when it comes to Hollywood. Prior to 2000, only six black actors had won Oscars. Since then, black actors, directors and producers have won 18 times. Race is becoming less relevant in the selection process and voting, but just because the current president of the Academy (Cheryl Boone Isaacs) is black, that doesn’t mean everything’s puppy dogs and ice-cream.

Despite recent Oscar history, many argue that minorities are still on the outside looking in. In fact, some nominees like Gabourey Sidibe and winners like Halle Berry haven’t been able to follow up their Oscar success with quality roles. Word

Emma, Oprah, Tom and Scarlett: Snubbed By The Oscars!

This morning the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced their nominees for the forthcoming Oscars, and unfortunately there were a few serious omissions.

For instance, many people were shocked to see that both “Saving Mr. Banks” and actress Emma Thompson failed to receive a nod in the Best Pictures and Best Supporting Actress categories, respectively.

To that end, Tom Hanks wasn’t recognized for his thrilling and compelling performance in the much-lauded “Captain Phillips.”

Even Oprah Winfrey, who was nominated for a SAG Trophy, BAFTA honors, and Critics Choice glory was left out of the running for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “The Butler.”

Furthermore, “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “The Butler” both got the cold shoulder in the Best Picture running, while Scarlett Johansson missed out on an Oscar nod for “Her,” and Justin Timberlake was ignored in the Best Original Song list.
