'Crossroads of change': #MeToo a turning point for film industry, says Academy president

At the 90th annual Oscars lunch in Beverly Hills, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, John Bailey praised the industry’s reckoning after the #MeToo campaign and for tackling its “worst abuses”. He said that Hollywood is at a crossroad after the campaign which saw big names from the industry coming forward and revealing names and dirty secrets. However, protesters said diversity efforts have not gone far enough.
