For the past few years award shows such as the Oscars have been under intense scrutiny. The Oscars has undoubtedly received the brunt of the backlash from groups such as the #MeToo Movement and the #Oscarsowhite hashtag which have called out racial and gender inequality in the winner selection process.

More often than not, these protests were bolstered and fuelled by social media powerhouses such as Instagram and Twitter. However, in more recent years much of the outrage has seemingly subsided. Let us take a look at what Twitter thought of this year’s #OscarWinners.
