The Hollywood Reporter Roundtable: The Actors 2018

Yesterday I shared the Hollywood Reporter’s Actress Roundtable. Today, let’s hear it for the guys. Although, to be honest, maybe our problems begin right there, with that separation of the sexes, which seems to cement in our differences. I’m all for having separate categories for male and female actors but I’m not sure when it comes to talking about the craft if that’s necessary or even helpful. I just don’t know. 

Anyway, we’ve got Tom Hanks who industry types thought could get a nod for The Post—and the nicest guy in town, not a whiff of sexual harassment here—James Franco who was ignored in the Best Actor category for Disaster Artist because when it comes to Franco there is that taint, [nope, they didn’t edit him out] Best Actor Oscar-nominated Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour, Best Supporting Actor Nominee Willem Dafoe for Florida Project, Best Supporting Actor Nominee Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and John Boyega who is there because of the huge popularity of the Star Wars franchise.
