Academy President John Bailey Denies Sexual Harassment Allegations

In a memo to the staff of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization’s president, John Bailey, has denied a sexual harassment allegation leveled against him.

Bailey said one named complaint was presented to the Academy regarding an alleged incident dating back more than 10 years. Variety reported on March 16 that the organization had received three complaints.

“I am alleged to have attempted to touch a woman inappropriately while we were both riding in a transport van on a movie set,” Bailey wrote in the memo, which went out Friday, March 23. “That did not happen.”

The ongoing situation has become the first true test of the Academy’s new standards of conduct and complaint review process in the midst of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

Bailey did not respond to a request for comment. His memo states that he has refrained from commenting thus far because he

Academy President John Bailey Is Under Investigation for Sexual Harassment

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has launched an investigation against its president, John Bailey, for sexual harassment. Sources reveal that the Academy received three separate claims of harassment against John Bailey, and immediately launched an investigation into these claims. There is no word on how long this investigation may take, but it may lead to a rather short tenure as president for John Bailey.

Bailey was elected as the Academy's new president in August 2017, in a rather surprising turn of events, after actress Laura Dern took herself out of the running (she still serves as a governor of the acting branch). This lead to Bailey, one of the governors of the cinematographer's guild, beating veteran casting director David Rubin in the Academy president election. Bailey was the first "below the line" (crew member) president of the Academy since the 1980s, and he had often been vocally critical
