The Hollywood Reporter's Actress Roundtable Video Destroyed My Attempt At Being Productive Tonight

Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Annette Bening, and Helena Bonham Carter walk into a swanky hotel conference room. For an hour and one minute, they just gab… about their careers and their families and the roles all of them are in serious Oscar contention for this year (except Swank, sorry… were Lesley Manville, Jennifer Lawrence or Diane Lane not available?). And for an hour and one minute, instead of doing the night’s work I had adamantly planned on doing, I just sort of watch in awe. Because The Hollywood Reporter has pulled of a classy, intimate video with these women that is sure to make anyone who can appreciate great actresses stop whatever they’re doing and spend an hour with 6 5 of them. It’s also a thrill for any Oscar geek to watch the charming, quick-witted Bening sit an actress down from Swank, who has now twice beat her out for the trophy (though its the woman to her right she needs to watch out for this year).
