Awards season. It’s almost impossible to hide from, especially if you’re in a film hub like Los Angeles.
Most of it is mindless celebrity gossip and clever marketing ploys from the major studios. But the endless PR machinery also brings forth one of my absolute favorite things; The Hollywood Reporters Roundtable. If you haven’t seen these yet, please do. It’s a cornucopia of knowledge and it’s a pleasantly laid-back look at some of the most prolific directors, actors, producers, documentarists, you-name-its of the industry.
Find the treasure trove of videos on The Hollywood Reporter’s website. Or start with some of our favorites below.
Director Roundtable: Angelina Jolie, Christopher Nolan, Richard Linklater and more.
Drama Showrunner Roundtable: Matthew Weiner, Aaron Sorkin, Nic Pizzolatto and more.
