New Q & A - Actors who should be more famous and more...

"I will add to that list Irfhan Khan; he gets roles steadily, but in my mind he should be a household name." -Rebecca

"I'll also echo that Rosemarie DeWitt is one of the most talented working actresses, full stop. There is no other Best Supporting Actress of 2008." - Hayden

Comedy Globes & SAG Ensemble

For this two-part conversation we began with the Comedy or Musical category at the Golden Globes. Is Salmon Fishing at the Yemen really a comedy? We suggest a new title for the category and also share our votes for SAG's frustrating "Outstanding Cast" prize which goes under the microscope while Nathaniel fights coughing jags.
