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 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.
