THR's Awards Season Roundtables with 6 Fantastic Directors
What would you get if you were to put Kathryn Bigelow, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson, James Cameron, Jason Reitman and Lee Daniels all together in one room? Well, if I were also in that same room with them, I'd probably explode with excitement. But THR did just that as part of their new Awards Season Roundtables series. The trade mag pulled all six of those very talented directors, almost all of whom are expected to be nominated at the Oscars next year, into one room, asked them some questions, and let them at it. You should have a big, goofy grin on your face watching this, it's history in the making.
You can watch more videos from this roundtable: Toughest Scenes to Shoot and Insider or Outsider. What I love about this the most, besides seeing so many brilliant minds talking about making movies, is that you get a small sense of the personality of each of these directors just by watching them for a few minutes. As in, Tarantino starts up with his big ego, and Cameron is trying to dominate his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow, and Peter Jackson and Jason Reitman are shy onlookers. I kept giggling while I was watching this because I have a feeling all of them were as nervous as the next, just doing their best to give good answers. Enjoy!
