A new study finds that, at the top of the list, women in Hollywood are paid the most in the world.
But the study is the first to look at the salaries of the top 100 directors, and it’s based on data from the BAFTA Film Awards, the Society of Film Critics, and the Writers Guild of America.
The authors of the study, from The New York Times, surveyed more than 2,500 top-paid directors, including many whose roles include directing a movie, or executive producing a feature film.
They also looked at salaries of their own directors, who are typically paid in the range of $80,000 to $100,000 per year.
The average pay for the top 1,000 directors is $150,000.
They calculated the average director’s total annual compensation for all of their films, including remunerations, as well as what they were paid for speaking fees and other bonuses.
The study found that directors in the top 10% of earners earned an average of $3.75 million per year in remunerated speaking and other income, and an average salary of $1.75m.
That’s roughly the amount that the top one-tenth of 1% of people make, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The top 1% make about $15 million per annum, or about $14.5 million a year.
The top 1.5% of directors, the authors calculated, earned $1,125,000, while the bottom 99% of the industry earned about $3,000 a year, or $7,400 per year, according the study.
But because the authors didn’t include remunerative bonuses, that number is lower.
For example, the top 50 directors at the Academy Awards, which takes place annually in January in Los Angeles, earn $6 million, $7 million, and $9 million.
The lowest-paid director at the Oscars, the writer and director of the hit Netflix series House of Cards, makes $3 million, according a list published on Friday by the Wall Street Journal.
The Academy is worth more than $6.5 billion, according its website.
Among the top directors, four have been nominated for a Grammy award in the past year: Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, Michael Bay, and Jennifer Lawrence.
The others have won Oscars for best picture and best actress.
The biggest remunerator of all in the industry is Peter Jackson, who makes $1 million per film.
The only other director with more than one Grammy nomination is David Fincher, who has won nine.
The other big remunerators are Michael Bay at $1 billion, director of Disney’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, James Cameron at $900 million, Disney’s Avatar director James Cameron, $800 million, James Gunn at $600 million, producer of the X-Men franchise, director Ben Affleck, $600.5million, and David Fassbender, $570.5m.
The film industry is still growing at an annual rate of 3.6%, which has been faster than the economy, according The New Economics Foundation, which compiles data from Statistics Canada.
But there’s a growing awareness of how unequal the pay gap is.
Last year, The Washington Post wrote about the salaries and remuneratives of the “most powerful women in the United States.”
In the study by the Times and the BETA authors, the “biggest remuneraters” at the BAFTAs were directors with no more than 10 years experience at the time of the survey.
They include actresses Ellen Page and Emma Stone, and actress Jennifer Garner.
The study also looked only at women directors.
Other findings from the study:Director Joss Whedon was paid an average annual salary of more than five times the average of his peers in the business, while Sandra Bullock was paid more than three times what her male co-stars were.
The Times also said that, despite the fact that women hold a quarter of the executive positions at the world’s largest movie studios, only 20% of those directors earn more than their male counterparts.
Director Ava DuVernay earned $10 million for her role in the animated feature “Dope,” while her male colleagues at Pixar earned $3 billion, the study found.
That is only about $500,000 less than their female co-star, Chris Pratt, whose “Guardians of the Galaxy” made $2.5bn.
DuVern, who is now executive producer of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” said in a statement to the Times that the salary gap was the result of a combination of factors.
“I can’t be the first woman director, but it was definitely a reflection of the gender pay gap,” she said.
“The pay gap at Hollywood is the widest it has ever been and it needs to be
