Critic Reviews for 90th Academy Awards
Kimmel may not have been disappointed, but the audience was. The political parts of the allegedly off-the-cuff acceptance speeches were mostly pro forma, perhaps the result of over-rehearsal.
Kimmel, for his part, seems made for this job - a mainstream performer who is sensitive to the winds of change, he is equally adept calling out injustice and calling for a party.
The whole ceremony was like this for me: halfway toward good. It dutifully mentioned #TimesUp and trotted out actresses to explain it...I didn't want safe. Not this year. I wanted some anger, or at least passion.
The jokes were funny, but, for the most part, the events of the evening were extraordinarily tame. The industry seems, above all, to be protecting itself-shielding itself from any sense that its corruption is built into the system.
The Oscars have a long history of self-congratulation...This Oscar ceremony brought home the fact that the changes have been a long time coming. It was also a potent reminder that they have a long, long way to go.
