Roundtables

THR's award-winning Roundtables series returns, featuring top stars of the year's most buzzed-about films, including actors, actresses, writers, producers and directors. Here is your complete guide to all the filmed panels.

Actress Roundtable: Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Taraji P. Henson and 4 More on Stage Fright, Onscreen Rape and How to Research Playing a Crack Addict

Seven A-list contenders — including Amy Adams, Annette Bening, Naomie Harris and Isabelle Huppert — sound off on their biggest fears, bucket-list goals and why questions about equal pay should be directed toward producers: "We are always put on the chopping block to put our opinion out there. ... I don't want to be a headline anymore about pay equality."

Songwriter Roundtable: Justin Timberlake, Sting, Alicia Keys and More Hitmakers on Gender Bias, Trump's "Hitler-Level" Rhetoric and Fears of a "Divided States of America"

The artists behind songs in this season's movies — also including Tori Amos, John Legend and Pharrell Williams — join THR's first-ever Songwriter Roundtable discussion to reveal the feeling of "blacking out" (in a good way), the freedom of not wearing makeup and their concerns for a post-election America.

Composer Roundtable: 6 Contenders on Film Music's Lack of Women, Working All-Nighters and How They'd Score the Election

Lesley Barber ('Manchester by the Sea'), Nicholas Britell ('Moonlight'), John Debney ('The Jungle Book'), Hauschka ('Lion'), Justin Hurwitz ('La La Land') and Hans Zimmer ('Hidden Figures') sat down for a discussion about their work process, the music that inspires them and why they never see their families (even working out of studios in their own homes!).

Documentary Roundtable: 'O.J.,' 'Weiner' Filmmakers and 4 More on Dealing With Death Onscreen and When to Turn the Camera Off

THR gathered six non-fiction filmmakers — Ezra Edelman ('O.J.: Made in America'), Werner Herzog ('Into the Inferno,' 'Lo and Behold'), Kirsten Johnson ('Cameraperson'), Josh Kriegman ('Weiner'), Raoul Peck ('I Am Not Your Negro') and Roger Ross Williams ('Life, Animated') — for a discussion about when to intercede in a scene, how much brutality to reveal on screen and why the diversity issue is "worse" in the doc world.

Producer Roundtable: Matt Damon, Frank Marshall and 4 More on Firing Themselves, Keeping Scorsese on Schedule and Their Worst Jobs

Along with Damon ('Manchester by the Sea') and Marshall ('Sully'), Darren Aronofsky ('Jackie'), Todd Black ('Fences'), Emma Tillinger Koskoff ('Silence') and Marc Platt ('La La Land') on Harrison Ford's role in 'Sully,' on-the-fly decisions that turned out to be spectacular and the challenges of their job: "I had typhoons, I had starving actors."
