One of the staples of the movie awards season over the past few years has been The Hollywood Reporter’s Roundtable series, which takes individuals in a common profession, all of whom worked on a variety of well-regarded features, and seats them down for a candid discussion of their jobs, the industry, and whatever other topics might come up. With this year’s award-worthy movies beginning to make their way to the public, The Hollywood Reporter has once again begun their Roundtable sessions, having released four full sessions already. The Roundtables can be seen below.
The first Roundtable session is the THR Writers Roundtable, featuring Chef‘s Jon Favreau, Gone Girl‘s Gillian Flynn, The Theory of Everything‘s Anthony McCarten, The Imitation Game‘s Graham Moore, Interstellar‘s Jonathan Nolan, and Top Five‘s Chris Rock.
Next up is the THR Executive Roundtable, featuring 20 Century Fox’s Jim Gianopulos, Universal Pictures’ Donna Langley, Walt Disney Studios’ Alan Horn, IFC Films’ Jonathan Sehring, Paramount Pictures’ Brad Grey, and Warner Bros. Entertainment’s Kevin Tsujihara.
The next roundtable sees THR sit down with the creative minds behind some of the year’s animated films, and it features The Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez, The Boxtrolls producer and animator Travis Knight, Song of the Sea director Tomm Moore, The Lego Movie producer Dan Lin, Big Hero 6 director Don Hall, and How to Train Your Dragon 2 producer Bonnie Arnold.
The final THR Roundtable released so far is the Actress Roundtable, featuring Big Eyes‘ Amy Adams, Boyhood‘s Patricia Arquette, Wild‘s Laura Dern, The Theory of Everything‘s Felicity Jones, Still Alice‘s Julianne Moore, The Homesman‘s Hilary Swank, and Wild‘s Reese Witherspoon.
