A Good Roundtable and a Bad Roundtable

You can't tell me that Stephen Daldry is going to get an Oscar nomination for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. He's great and I love The Hours, but please, why is he in this roundtable conversation and not any women? And George Clooney for The Ideas of March? Not going to happen. But I guess they are both sexier than Lynne Ramsay for We Need to Talk About Kevin which won the Best British film from the London Film Critics last week.

Good for Newseek for having a diverse panel for an actors roundtable.  I know that it is easier to get female actresses and to have some diversity, but we need to keep pushing for ALL the roundtable discussion to be diverse.
