The latest data is in for women employed on the 250 top-grossing films of 2016, and the numbers are abysmal lower, in many cases, than in 1998 according to San Diego State 's Center for the Study of Women in Film. In her 19th annual Celluloid Ceiling report, Dr. Martha Lauzen found that women comprised only 17% of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers working on the top 250 domestic grossing films last year.

Female directors made up 7% of the total of helmers in 2016's 250 top domestic grossing films, a drop of 2% over 2015. The decline matches the percentage drop of all female directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers who worked on those films, according to a study released today by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film at San Diego State University. In all, female employment on the top 250 films was at 17% last year...

There is also another surprising issue that has not improved as much as I anticipated when I entered the field twenty years ago when I joined the New York Post (following the critic Jami Bernard who has since left the field.). After an initial rejection, I gained a spot in the male-dominated New York Film Critics Circle. I believed that by now, with my help, and that of my sisters, there would be many more powerful women in film criticism, continuing to encourage strong female-driven movies and supporting female directors, cinematographers, screenwriters and the like. Instead, as the researcher Martha Lauzen has shown, equity between male and female critics has lagged dramatically. In her latest report Center for the Study of Women in Television in Film [1] , basically men outnumber women among critics three to one. And that ratio isn't changing anytime soon.

If the Golden Globes were your first look at the 2017 movie awards season, you likely came away thinking that there was one movie last year. It was called La La Land , and nothing else matters. The end. Not only was the nights opening number a loving spoof of the filma tacit endorsement, on the one hand, though it was certainly the most logical film to inspire a musical number because it is actually a musicalbut it also won all seven awards for which it was nominated. This massive haul accounts for half of the movie awards doled out altogether and set a new record for most wins at the ceremony. So La La Land must be a shoo-in to dominate at the Oscars on Feb. 26, right? In reality, its not so simple. The Golden Globes and the Academy Awards have exactly zero overlap in their voting bodies: Globes are decided by a group of 90-100 foreign journalists and Oscars by more than 6,000 actors, directors, cinematographers and other movie-makers.

So too the film caliber employed by directors and cinematographers, the parameters of the theaters we view films in, or the formats in which they're eventually brought into our homes. Even bookmakers obsess over the seemingly mundane but subtly impactful minutia of font types, or the tactile feel of different paper stocks. It's also possible to overreach, to see older games harmed by ratcheting up the screen pixel count. Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition , a PS4 Pro enhanced game that five years ago boggled the mind with its lofty peaks and steaming rafts of clouds, has an uncanny valley problem at 4K. Geometric primitives and repetitive distant textures obscured by lower resolutions on older systems now can't be ignored, lifting a veil that shouldn't have been. Skyrim , even in its newly remastered form, feels more mysterious and otherworldly as something running at 720 or 1080p and 30 frames per second.
