After Will Smith’s slap-heard-around-the-world, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences was expected to clean house and announce some new, stricter regulations. According to Variety, today, they announced a wide-sweeping reformation, but none of their rules had anything to do with approaching the podium and smacking the bejesus out of someone who just made a joke about your significant other. Nor did they cut down the bloated Best Picture category or pretty much any of the changes audiences have been begging for.

The Academy Awards instead adopted a new system that would reset their submission guidelines to pre-pandemic standards, streamline the Best Song nominations, and for good measure, change the names of the Best Documentary categories.
