Following 2015 and 2016's #OscarsSoWhite backlash, the 89th Academy Award nominations are in and they are a lot less white.
And the internet has taken notice.
The 2017 nominations have brought forth a lot of firsts, including in the Best Supporting Actress category where three out of the five actresses nominated are black...
A feat that many felt was rightfully earned by each actress...
So much so, it's going to be a tough category to call.
Davis's nod also made her the most Oscar-nominated black actress in history, a slay that didn't go without recognition on Twitter.
Another slay that didn't go without recognition? This fun fact about Harris' role in Moonlight.
Denzel Washington, Ruth Negga, and Mahershala Ali are also nominated for Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor, respectively, making this year the first time each performance category includes a black nominee.
The Academy made another statement by nominating three black films for Best Picture this year.
Some couldn't help but joke about the kind of confusion all that diversity may cause leading up the award show.
Other historic nods include three black documentaries receiving nominations...
Three black screenwriters receiving nominations for the first time...
Arrival's Bradford Young becoming the first African-American cinematographer ever nominated...
And Joi McMillon becoming the first black woman ever nominated in the Best Editing category.
In the midst of celebrating all these firsts, many made a point to note that the road to truly diverse representation in Hollywood is still long.
Because, as #OscarSoWhite creator @ReignofApril pointed out, this is only one year and there are other minority races that continue to be left out.
For example, Dev Patel is only the third Indian actor to ever be nominated for an Oscar. The THIRD. EVER.
And Lin-Manuel Miranda is one of the only two Latinx nominees.
And there were still some black snubs.
But this year's nominations have definitely given people a more optimistic view of the future of inclusion in Hollywood.
"Things are changing because our voices are strongest together."
