Each year, Webster's Dictionary adds new words to the dictionary. But why should emojis be left out? The cute little symbols, or "modern-day hieroglyphics," are indeed a language of their own, so, like Webster's, each year the Unicode Consortium adds new emojis to its "dictionary," which is all chronicled by emojipedia.

This year, emojipedia has put forth 74 new candidates, in which 36 have been accepted for consideration for the 2016 Unicode update (9.0), which means, you could be seeing some of these new emojis on your smartphone as early as this year. Let me tell you, some of them are pretty awesome.

For starters, there's the awesome male dancer to join the iconic red dress dancer:

New foods include an avocado, a potato and bacon.

Get this: there's even a new emoji for "selfie" as well as "nauseated," the iconic "shrug" and a clown face.

There's also a new group of animals.

And, to round everything out, there's a black heart, a wilting flower, new scooters and a pregnant lady.
