The Hollywood Reporter: The Actress Roundtable

Rachel Weisz, Glenn Close, Regina King, Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga & Kathryn Hahn for THR's Actress Roundtable

One of the things I look forward to most as awards season heats up is the annual tradition of the Hollywood Reporter sitting down with a table full of possible award contenders and chatting. Organized by category: actors and actresses, writers, directors, cinematographers, editors, etc, the videos give we the fans extraordinary peeks into the thought processes and personalities of the people who make the movies. 

While THR doesn't release the full hour-long recordings until January, we do get tantalizing bits and pieces like this five-minute video edited to highlight some of what Glenn Close shared with the panel of women—three of whom are starring in movies based on books we've been talking about— including Nicole Kidman (Boy Erased, Destroyer), Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Rachel Weisz (The Favourite) plus Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) and Kathryn Hahn (Private Life). Close is part of this year's conversation due to her work on the remarkable The Wife based on the book by Meg Wolitzer.

I'll share additional videos throughout the week.
