Once again, #OscarsSoWhite is trending on social media.

The hashtag first surfaced after the 2015 Oscars nominees were announced. 

The films and categories represented in the awards show were extremely diverse. But the actors nominated for awards weren't.

Now, in the wake of the release of actors and actresses to be considered for accolades at the 2016 Oscars, #OscarsSoWhite is trending again.

Will Smith, who earned a Golden Globes nomination this year for his role as Dr. Bennet Omalu in “Concussion,” wasn’t among the 2016 Academy Awards nominees announced Thursday morning. 

Sylvester Stallone, who claimed a best supporting actor Globe trophy for his role in “Creed,” is up for a similar Oscar. The movie’s black star and director, Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler, were not among nominees for either a Golden Globe or Oscar.

Idris Elba was up for a supporting-actor Globe for “Beasts of No Nation” but received no Oscars nod.

Most social media users, which spanned many races and ethnicities, expressed shock and disappointment that "Creed" and "Straight Outta Compton," both of which topped box office sales, did not yield any award nominations for actors of color.

The most recent black actor to win an Academy Award was Lupita Nyong, who played a slave in 2013’s "12 Years a Slave." The first was Hattie McDaniel, who also played a slave for her role in 1939’s "Gone With the Wind." Only one Latino actor has won best actor for a lead role, and no Latina actress has ever won best actress for a leading role.

"Three seconds. That's how long we had from the moment we drifted off the road until the truck hit the pillar at 85mph," Arika Stovall wrote in a post on Facebook.

Stovall, a student at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, and her boyfriend, Hunter Hanks, were on their way back to Nashville from Jacksonville, Florida on New Year's Day when they crashed into a concrete bridge pillar. They don't remember what happened in the moments before the crash.

The Toyota Tundra pickup truck they were traveling in was totaled. Hanks' head was plunged through the car's windshield. Stovall underwent a panic attack. The crash could have been fatal.

And yet, the two survived with little physical damage.

"(There were) no broken bones, concussions that lasted not even 24 hours, no internal damage and just a few stitches in my knee and Hunter's face," Stovall wrote. "I don't know how we lived through that," she told WTVF

Shortly after the crash, Stovall posted a photo on Facebook with a caption explaining the accident, the effects and her disbelief that the two had survived.

In the photo, Hanks is leaning over Stovall, who is lying in a hospital bed. Both are wearing neck braces and clearly wounded, but they're smiling at each other.

"Embrace the struggles and the joys of this life," Stovall wrote. "Without a doubt, it's a miracle we're alive, but more than that it's simply God's plan for us. We're so grateful for this wreck and all it will do in our lives. We are blessed to be okay."

The post has been shared more than 92,000 times.
