THR's Oscar Roundtable Season in 3 Minutes (Video)
What do Anne Hathaway, Ang Lee, Colleen Atwood, Naomi Watts, Denzel Washington and Mark Boal have in common?
Aside from nabbing nominations from the Academy on Thursday morning, they all also took part in The Hollywood Reporter’s annual roundtables this season. Of the 49 Oscar hopefuls interviewed by THR, a whopping 24 received nominations for the 2013 awards ceremony, with the winners to be announced at the Feb. 24 event.
But if you don’t have time to watch all 1,440 minutes of footage from the actress, actor, director, writer, composer, producer, executive and costume designer roundtables, fear not. THR has condensed the highlights down into a three-minute highlight reel, featured above.
Among the highlights: Jamie Foxx describes an early, pre-fame encounter with Denzel Washington; John Krasinski explains why Matt Damon wanted to -- but didn't -- direct Promised Land; and Sally Field recalls the moment she knew she’d play Mary Todd Lincoln.
