The Oscars are just around the corner and we already have a hashtag you should be following. The hashtag #OscarsWeNeed is trending now, and it’s pretty hilarious.

Ahead of Sunday night’s show, Twitter is already focused on the 89th Annual Academy Awards. In fact, people are really jumping on board with this latest trend.

Last year, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite was an important response to the show’s diversity problem, but this year’s Twitter trend is much more light-hearted.

This year, it’s all about the Oscars categories that we need, hence the hashtag name. It’s pretty self-explanatory, don’t you think?

There are tweets about backup actors needing to be recognized and random animals in scenes that should get a shoutout.

Some are sassy, while others will make you laugh out loud. To see what we’re talking about and a few of our personal faves, check out #OscarsWeNeed in all its glory below.

Fake cries for everyone.


Blake Lively might’ve been the star of The Shallows, but really, what about that seagull?

Teenage dream alert.

Sweeping is a skill. Sweeping without touching the ground, now that’s Oscar worthy!

Accents or bust.

Table for one, or two, or three.

Oh, and then there are the posts about characters named Oscar, which are too fun. Our vote is for the dorky guy from The Office.

What Oscar category do you think we need? Tells us in the comments!

Tune into this year’s award show on February 26th, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET p.m. on ABC.
