During the 2015 Academy Awards, a nationwide discussion of the show's lack of diversity spread on Twitter under the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.
But with the beginning of Women's History Month, the Twittersphere has pinpointed a different problem: The lack of movies about real women.
Thousands of people have taken to social media to highlight the many women with filmworthy stories using the hashtag #FilmHerStory.
After all, since the Oscars began in 1928, only 16% of the nominees have been women, the Oscar Database Silk reports.
And of the just four women to have been nominated for Best Director, only one has won.
No woman has ever been nominated for Best Cinematography.
And only 7% of major Hollywood films are directed by women, according to the Center for the Study of Women in TV and Film.
This year, every film nominated for Best Picture was about a man.
Steve Jobs and Edward Snowden both had two movies made about them this year.
Yet Harriet Tubman has only ever appeared cinematically in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
And the "one-dimensional female character" still pervades Hollywood.
Of the top 100 grossing films in 2014, women represented 30% of all speaking characters, says the CSWTF.
29% of those were major characters, 12% were protagonists, and 13% were leaders (executives, politicians, doctors etc).
Of the female characters appearing in films, the racial breakdown was as follows: 74% white, 11% black, 4% Latino, 4% Asian, 4% other, and this being the movie industry, 3% otherworldly, according to the report.
And no Oscar-acknowledged trans characters have ever been played by a transgender actress.
Twitter has pitched thousands of film ideas, now its time for Hollywood to start writing.
