Three claims of sexual harassment have been made against John Bailey

The Academy received three claims of sexual harassment against Bailey on Wednesday and began an investigation, according to United States celebrity news sites Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

John Bailey, who has been president of the Academy since past year, is now facing three harassment claims, according to Variety, who first reported the news.

Bailey, a 75-year-old cinematographer, was elected to the four-year position in August, and has seen the Academy through perhaps its darkest period - with the downfall of Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent #MeToo movement exposing the widespread mistreatment of women in the industry. Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein was thrown out of the Academy previous year in light of the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against him.

The president of the Academy of Motion Pictures, the organisation that hands out the Oscars, is reportedly being investigated for sexual misconduct. According to a document sent to members, individuals will be able to report misconduct through an online form the academy plans to launch in the summer of 2018, or by phone to the academy's membership department.

In a painful twist of irony, Bailey's tenure has been marked by the #MeToo movement, which forever changed the way the academy approaches misconduct by its members, nearly using membership as a tool to punish those accused of sexual assault and/or harassment.

Bailey did not respond to CNN's request for comment.

In the months since then, the Academy has also unveiled a new code of conduct and a new claims process.

The group's expulsion of Weinstein lat October elicited praise but also questions why other figures such as the director Roman Polanski, who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in 1977, were still members.

If forced to step down, Bailey would be temporarily replaced by Lois Burwell, a veteran makeup artist who is the Academy's vice president, until the next election in July, according to Variety.
