President of the Academy accused of sexual harassment

Bailey, a 75-year-old cinematographer whose most recent credit was the 2017 comedy "How to be a Latin Lover", replaced Cheryl Boone Isaacs in the Oscars organization's top member-held post in August of last year.
When reached for comment by CNN, the Academy said it "treats any complaints confidentially to protect all parties".
"We will not comment further on such matters until the full review is completed".
Bailey's tenure has been marked by a historic shift in the Academy's approach to misconduct by its members.
"The Academy's goal is not to be an investigative body, but rather ensure that when a grievance is made, it will go through a fair and methodical process", CEO Dawn Hudson wrote at the time.
The veteran U.S. movie director and cinematographer was elected to the four-year term as president of the Academy in August and has overseen the backlash against sexual misconduct in Hollywood following the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
The Academy has been largely lauded for its response to the #MeToo movement though, with the group quickly voting to expel Weinstein and Bailey overseeing the establishment of a new code of conduct for the industry.
After that, "allegations must be substantiated by clear evidence of behavior that violates the Academy's Standards of Conduct". Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein was thrown out of the Academy past year in light of the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against him.
The #MeToo and Time's Up initiatives were at the center of this year's Academy Awards, as host Jimmy Kimmel dedicated much of his opening monologue to addressing the sexual harassment and assault that's plagued Hollywood for years.
Just days after those stories hit the press, the Academy voted to kick out Weinstein - which raised awkward questions about what the organization planned to do about all the other accused predators in its midst.
