Armand Douglas "Armie" Hammer is an American actor. He is known for his portrayal of the Winklevoss twins in the biographical drama film The Social Network, the title character in the western action . . .
Time's Up was introduced to The World in 2018 in a dramatic fashion as Hollywood's most powerful Women turned a Red Carpet black to protest sexual assault, misconduct and inequality in Hollywood and beyond.
Many believed the culture had shifted dramatically, that a record number of female filmmakers would emerge amid The Rise of the #MeToo movement and the downfall of powerful men like Harvey Weinstein .
So why aren't more Women directors killing it?
"The industry is a slow-moving one, a conservative one that resists change," says Nithya Raman, the director of Time's Up Entertainment, who does believe the culture of Hollywood has changed.
And Hollywood does feel different. The Town is full of stories about studios and agencies backing female-driven projects. And The Academy invited nearly 1,000 new members to diversify its predominantly older white, male voting Bloc .Kay Cannon appeared at the premiere for Blockers Ava Duvernay (far left) at The Debut of A Wrinkle In Time
Jenkins' film Moonlight won The Best picture Oscar two years ago.
"When I was here before you didn't have three black films in the same category as you do now," Jenkins told the BBC on the Golden Globes Red Carpet .
Women directors say the culture shift has been more prevalent in independent films.
"I would say there are a lot more opportunities for Women directors But I would say that progress is a lot slower than you might have expected," said Leah Meyerhoff , The Founder of Film Fatales, a group of female directors who support each others work and advocate for gender equity in Show Business .
"Hollywood is a giant ship and is slow to turn," Meyerhoff said.
When asked if there had been a backlash because some complain that less experienced Women were getting opportunities ahead of more experienced men, Down laughed and quoted a studio exec who told her "we've been celebrating male mediocrity for years".
"We know we've made it if we celebrate female mediocrity and people of colour mediocrity - so yay!" Down said.Armie Hammer worked with Mimi Leder for his first film with a female director
This Year , Time's Up urged Hollywood's most powerful actors and producers and executives to commit to working with a female director in the next 18 months.
"I think a lot of Hollywood is set in its ways," Hammer said. "I know that a change is due and for example I've been Making Movies for 15 years and this is The First movie I've made with a female director. "
"That's what makes it even crazier - it makes it even more bizarre that it doesn't happen more," he said.
Meanwhile, Time's Up is starting a mentorship programme and their legal defence fund has raised More Than $20m.
"I think a lot of people thought this was a flash in the pan that this would disappear after a few months," Raman said. "But we haven't. We're still here. We're still fighting. "
