    Why Margulies again? I wonder if she sits there and bellyaches about how tiring her show is, per usual? Oh, wait. This year she complained about not being the network’s first or second choice.

    This conversation made a better impression than last year’s. Keri Russell being shy and gushing over with little nuances is such a pleasure to watch

    Robin Wright’s absence was ”loud”.

    I’m waiting for the Showrunner’s Roundtable which was composed by Vince Gilligan, Matthew Weiner, Nic Pizzollatto, Aaron Sorkin, Ann Biderman and Carlton Cuse.

    William Macy tweeted recently that he was in the Comedy Roundtable alongside Andy Sandberg, Jason Biggs, Tony Hale, Matt Leblanc and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

    Bates Motel?

    Ehhhhhh, Cuse is an experienced showrunner with an Emmy win in his belt for Lost. I think he’d be valuable for the panel (and they can make the excuse that the show is at least linked to Emmy discussion with Vera Farmiga’s nomination). 

    And I’d say it’s far more credible a choice than getting Kevin Williamson for The Following last year.

    Makes me wonder if Farmiga would’ve beaten Paulson’s Magnificent performance in 12YaS.

    also, that Travolta’s impression …pretty on point.

    Also, won’t Matthe Weiner ever shut up about his job as an exec. producer on The Sopranos? It is just pathetic, even for him.

    Everyone in the actress roundtable comes off great except Margulies once again. She never fails to whine about something in these things and just seems like a snob.

    Very curious to see what the drama actor roundtable is going to be. It’d be nice to get Cranston in there one last time but I doubt he had the time since he’s on broadway right now. McConaughey and/or Harrelson would be great too but my guess is they couldn’t get them either.

    I hope they get Freddie Highmore for drama actors roundtable! And maybe Spacey, Schreiber, Mikkelsen, Rhys and Harrelson.

    Gilligan is hillarious,  such a genius, very confident that Better Call Saul is going to be fantastic.

    Both of these were a lot of fun to watch.  Looking forward to the next installment.

    I like how THR have stepped things up with the production of these.

    The production value has definitely imporved, but I loathe the media player on the THR site. But whatever…

    The actress disussion was excellent and I love them all, but having watched Margulies in the past and knowing how tightly wound she is, I did laugh at how she constantly pushed back her hair with purpose. Bless. That said, Danes was the best and the most forthcoming. I felt like I learned something by listening to her. Jessica Pare is so green, but very likeable. And Sarah Paulson is probably one of the most charming individuals ever. 

    As far as the showrunners table goes, I was taken aback by how likeable I found Sorkin to be. He actually had humility and I appreciated that he said (admitted?) that he does dialogue well, but not story. I LOVED that Sorkin spoke about his writing process though, as he actually acts it out when he does it — I enjoy that it’s a thing I can picture happening in my head. I also thought there was some kind comrarderie between Sorkin and Gilligan and it was nice. 

    Gilligan is so wonderful. He’s humble and hard working and in charge and smart.
