THR’s Blackfamous Roundtable: Revered and Underrecognized at the Same Time — The Duality of Fame in Black Hollywood

Loretta Devine, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Larenz Tate and Lynn Whitfield open up about the power and privilege of being legends among Black fans and how the new Hollywood landscape is making entertainment both less segmented and less intimate: "I want the whole world."

“Box Office? I Don’t Care. I Did My Job”: Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Stewart, Tessa Thompson and the THR Actress Roundtable

Jessica Chastain, Kirsten Dunst and Emilia Jones also join the discussion, sharing and swapping advice on industry anxieties (COVID or otherwise), the moment when success seemed furthest away, and the head of state they all admire.

“Whyyy Do I Do This?”: Kaley Cuoco, Jean Smart, Lena Waithe and the THR Comedy Actress Roundtable

Aidy Bryant, Holly Hunter and Cristin Milioti also get real about "dreadful" sex scenes, the fights to play messy, flawed women and the early advice they wish they’d gotten, like, "Don’t do it!"

“Fear and Desperation Drive a Lot of Comedy”: Bill Lawrence, Chuck Lorre, Darren Star and the Comedy Showrunner Roundtable

The veteran creators join newer showrunners like 'PEN15''s Anna Konkle, 'The Upshaws'' Wanda Sykes and 'Chad''s Nasim Pedrad to exchange tips, quips and what it’s like to mine personal history: "It’s what we do, steal from writers’ lives and then don’t give them any credit."

“My Family Doesn’t Want to Be Overwhelmed by My Backside”: Regé-Jean Page, Chris Rock, John Boyega and the THR Drama Actor Roundtable

Jonathan Majors and Josh O’Connor also join the discussion about family reactions to sexy roles, how actors are "the empathy bridge" in Hollywood and why on-set support goes a long way: "Your fellow actors will give you more jobs than your reps."

“How the Hell Are We Going to Do This?”: Lena Dunham, Noah Hawley, Steven Canals and the THR TV Director Roundtable

Lucia Aniello, Zach Braff, Rick Famuyiwa and Elisabeth Moss join the conversation about befriending intimacy coordinators, fighting the clock and awkwardly coaching actors.

“You Have to Feel Sick in Order to Feel Good”: Barry Jenkins, Ethan Hawke and the THR Drama Showrunner Roundtable

Misha Green, Katori Hall and Peter Morgan join the discussion on why the job can be like "jumping without a parachute" and telling stories that make executives nervous.

“It’s a New Day”: Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Gillian Anderson and the THR Drama Actress Roundtable

Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson join them as the top TV actresses get candid about speaking up and breaking down: “It’s easy to get locked in our own heads and assume, ‘There’s something wrong with me.’”

“Alpha Males Scare the Crap Out of Me”: Ted Danson, Pete Davidson and the THR Comedy Actor Roundtable

Ed Helms, Lamorne Morris, Ben Platt and Chris Redd join them to discuss the careers they covet, the discomfort of fame and the pressure to use their platforms to speak up: "Sometimes I just got a dick joke!"

Actor Roundtable: Ben Affleck, Sacha Baron Cohen, Delroy Lindo, Gary Oldman, John David Washington and Steven Yeun on Their Liberating Roles

Six awards contenders reflect on the draws — and drawbacks — of a profession for which they have studied, sacrificed and, in a few cases, even risked their life.

Writer Roundtable: Aaron Sorkin, Emerald Fennell, Kemp Powers, Radha Blank and Sam Levinson on the Journey to Get Their Stories to Screen

Five top screenwriters — behind the films 'The Trial of the Chicago 7,' 'Promising Young Woman,' 'One Night in Miami'/'Soul,' 'The Forty-Year-Old-Version' and 'Malcolm & Marie' — open up about the struggle and satisfaction of finding their voice and harnessing their power.  

Actress Roundtable: Zendaya, Kate Winslet, Carey Mulligan, Vanessa Kirby, Andra Day and Glenn Close on “Supporting Other Women Without Judgment”

The six actresses also candidly discuss what outsiders get wrong about acting, juggling work and family and how #MeToo has changed the culture for the next generation: "We're getting all the bad stuff out of the way."
