    Fantastic interview/discussion. Fran’s insights and commentary to your questions, superb.
  • Sunny Wunder
    Bryan Cranston
    What an amazing interview. Bryan Cranston seems to be one of the most centered, empathetic, smart, and kind person I’ve ever heard on a podcast. I’m so glad they had I had an opportunity to listen to such an authentic being. You can tell how much he loves his craft. The problem with someone with so much talent if you don’t know if he’s acting in his interviews!

    Amazing Interviewer
    Well researched, fun, light, but thorough. Such great insight
  • Rosmry1023
    The best interviewer ever!
    Scott is phenomenal. To name just a few reasons: The research he brings, the way he listens, his humor and empathy. From Carson to Larry King, Scott is the smartest, most psychologically minded, polite gentleman I have ever listened to!

    Renee Z
    Generally I think people appreciate sincerity. Scott is a well prepared professional. Renee is a treasured cinematic figure. Exploring the depths of her career in a heartfelt style, Scott turned the interview into a conversation that seemed to be of genuine interest to both. I enjoyed hearing Renee turn the tables on Scott a couple of times, asking for his thoughts as well. That is authentic dialog, and it had me wishing the conversation would have continued beyond the hour. Being new to this podcast, I do look forward to exploring the library of interviews I missed over the last 4-5 years.

  • Fairnhonest

  • oaklandshyne
    Great podcast
    Scott Feinberg is such an excellent interviewer. So prepared, thoughtful and even reflective at times. I especially appreciate how he responds to interview subjects when they push him to reframe his thinking (like in the Kerry Washington interview). Still, I watch/listen to a lot of Hollywood reporter podcasts, interviews and round tables and I do wish they would ask everyone (and not just ppl of color) about racism in Hollywood and ask everyone (and not just women) about sexism in Hollywood, etc. Its subject matter that’s important to all of us and would set a better precedent for interviews moving forward.
  • darthfleur
    I’m a filmmaker who hasn’t broken in yet and listening to this helps me believe more in my dreams.
  • Massjen
    Consistently fantastic
    Scott delves into professional choices, work method, and personal motivations. He is thorough, prepared, and respectful. He might be the single biggest fan of the film industry, writ large, that I know of. His passion and enthusiasm for his subjects, their work, and time in which they work is irresistible. I recommend episodes of this podcast to friends more than any other.
  • Damian Jason White
    One of the best podcast...
    podcast that interviews and gets personal with some of our favorite entertainers today. Scott is so incredibly deep with his research on each guest. Some of my favorites moments each episode, is when he ask a guest a question and they have a very impressed reaction to the amount of research that he did to prep for the interview. He makes the guest and listeners feel incredibly comfortable which makes it even easier for them to open up and be themselves. A must listen podcasts, that always has me excited to see who will be on next.
  • michemidl1
    One of my favorite podcasts!
    I absolutely love this podcast. As an Actress, I appreciate hearing these in depth interviews with Actors and filmmakers. Scott is a wonderful Host and always so well researched. I was honored to have him on my podcast and learn about his journey. I've been a fan of Awards Chatter for years! I highly recommend Jennifer Lawrence, Denzel Washington, Lily James, Amanda Seyfried, Meryl Streep, Oprah, and more. Check out his Interview, Episode 20 of Mentors on the Mic. - Michelle

    Never Disappoints
    Scott does his homework on every guest (and there seriously isn’t a single guest that disappoints) and comes with meaningful, deep, and interesting questions that often go against that typical pop culture “who are you wearing” type questions we usually painfully sit through. If you love television and film, the art of acting and filmmaking, and love to hear about the moments that lead to where someone you admire is today this is 100% a podcast you’ll fall in love with. In particular, with 2020 being a dumpster fire year that we’ve all found ourselves locked up at home with little social interaction, this podcast has become more of a lifeline than I could have imagine when I started listening to it two years ago. My hats off to Scott for exceptional journalism, great guests, some good laughs, and his contagious excitement for all things filmmaking.
  • Ravioli a
    i love it
    this might be weird but so far the episodes that i've listened to have always given me like really calm vibes lol idk i love this podcast its really nice to listen to
  • nucuplmnjuyh
    Sandra Oh
    My god, the host went on and on, barely letting Oh speak. Also his fake laughter almost muted her responses.
  • Podsto
    Fantastic Host + Fascinating Guests = Fun Listen
    I love the format to the episodes, chronicling from childhood to present, and I appreciate the host allowing the guest enough time to speak!
  • MickeyFriend
    Best Celebrity Show With Substance
    Scott is great at looking at the business and art aspects of someone’s career. Really love his style and choice of questions. Thoughtful guy. Best interview show around Hollywood I have seen. He and Kara Swisher are the two best podcast interviewers I listen to.

    Favorite Podcast
    Love this podcast! He does such a great job at researching before and speaks with such ease. I especially loved the Hillary Clinton podcast!
  • KevRyan217
    Awards Chatter
    Simply and outstandingly? If that’s a word: the best celebrity interviewer ever. Scott clearly does his research before each and every guest, and you can tell that they can tell. This tends to lead to more honest conversations than I’ve ever heard from a regular talk show interview. Fantastic podcast, in which I check weekly. Been waiting for you to interview Conan for forever!! Didn’t think it would happen, then it finally did! & you did a amazing job Scott, it’s not easy to keep Conan serious & not doing a ‘bit.’.😂
  • Andrea-E90
    Great interviews
    Scott is such a great interviewer, I enjoy this podcast all year long but especially around Oscar season.
  • hartford350
    Great interviews
    Scott Feinberg is an excellent host and interviewer. Love hearing the interviewees “start from the beginning” and discuss their early lives and influences. In-depth and fascinating.
  • kaanmrmr
    Scottt Fiendberg is one of the best interviewer
    Im a fan of this podcast. As an artist I get so many answers to my questions and a boost when I’m in self doubts. During the quarantine this podcast has become my daily companion and I’m happy I used a lot of my time learning about show business and other individuals struggles and journey. Thank you Scott Fiendberg and The Hollywood Reporter :)
  • Kyle McFadden
    The best
    If you want interviews about entire careers... there’s nothing better than this podcast. To scope and depth of the interviews are unmatched.
  • Fanofdallasstars
    The whole person
    I really like the scope of each interview being about the various points of the interviewee’s professional life. Scott does research that allows the audience to go beyond what is in the magazines in a meaningful way. Just wonderful to hear how these individuals had made both bad and good choices. So glad that I found this podcast.
  • AdCarlisle
    Intelligent, consistent, dazzling
    I have listened to this podcast for years now. Scott is professional, well prepared and a great broadcast journalist. I love entertainment news, but I rarely fine it intellectually stimulating. Scott provides intelligent, fun work product consistently. One of my favorite podcasts!
  • VH in Oakland
    Scott is an awesome interviewer
    Love these podcasts as opportunities to deep dive with some of my favorite actors. Scott is as well researched, well Prepared as they come.
  • LuaRuns
    No Cookie-Cutter Interviews Here
    Scott is a knowledgeable and relaxed host which results in insightful and interesting interviews. Very cool.
  • clefiance
    Best in the Business
    Thank you Scott and team for the fantastic work, I highly recommend this podcast
  • Mar Bella
    The host is a thoughtful listener and clearly does his research for each guest... In turn, they open up. Great podcast!
  • fueledbymetal
    Great podcast
  • MB.T
    ❤️ Hollywood stories? This is YOUR podcast!
    I love this guy’s interview style! First and foremost, Paul does a copious amount of research on his subject. Secondly, he knows his listeners may not be “in the business” so he asks more probing questions so the person he is interviewing can explain the topic a little further. Thirdly, he makes everyone (or almost everyone) seem appealing. Lastly, once finished with the interview I am left with a laundry list of movies watch - just based upon his enthusiasm and honest interest. Love it.
  • Solitary K
    I recommend this to anyone who is in or wants to be in showbusiness
    Based on extensive research and great taste in guests and questions, Scott delivers one compelling interview after another. The only down side is that after listening, you’ll have a long list of movies you either want to see again or see first time. Now I almost look forward to traffic because I get to hear another timely story. His interview with Neon Head Tom Quinn aired the day after Quinn’s efforts led to the historic Parasite win. Scott is on it!
  • GRJR721
    No Kobe Bryant Revisited Episode Zero Stars 👎🏼

  • T-Brad
    Great interviews and interviewer
    Scott really come prepared for his interviews and gets the best content out of his guests. Must listen to Tom Hanks episode. So good.
  • 804Hokie
    Scott is really a GOAT
    Scott is one of the best interviewers I’ve ever listened to. He asks the best questions and his research is always so impressive. This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts as an aspiring actor. He really gets folks to open up and be relaxed giving us, the audience, a look into some of the greatest minds in the industry. Keep it up Scott and the rest of the team!
  • XI Allogenes
    Listen to the Shia LaBeouf interview. Whether you love him or hate him, this interview demonstrates the genuineness of this podcast.
  • GG0849
    My favorite
    Scott is the best “Hollywood” interviewer so I am BEYOND glad he is the host of this podcast. I love watching all The Hollywood Reporter Roundtables and watch them the second they become available. Out of all the hosts, I loved Scotts interviews of the Roundtables the most. He is respectful, he never cuts people off, he really does his research, he backs off if he feels like he’s losing the guests interest and he is just kind. So glad to have found the podcast! It’s a great to get to know the more human side of these artists.
  • A-Vizzle
    AV, Cinephile
    Scott is someone I admire deeply in the industry. He gets great guests but his level of research is nonpareil and I love his fearlessness in asking tough questions. Keep it rolling man!
  • Barb Dee
    A must listen !
    Every interview is great ! Listen to any single one and you will be HOOKED!
  • EdRed
    Excellent Podcast
    Scott Feinberg, the host, does an excellent job. He’s one of the most prepared interviewers I’ve ever seen/heard. This show is always fascinating, enlightening and entertaining. If you love movies, you’ll love this podcast.
  • Eddie203
    Love It!
    Scott Feinberg is one of the most thorough and prepared interviewers I’ve ever listened to. I have enjoyed several episodes, and continue to get new insight and inspiration from each episode. Thank you, Scott!
  • Inshaygram
    Scott is the man!
    Look forward to each episode! As a working actor, this podcast is like going to class. Scott’s in depth discussions with his guests on their journey thru this business is insightful, educational and inspiring. Thank you THR and Scott for this awesome podcast!!
  • crazylegs camfoos
    Billy Porter is My Hero
    Thank you for this interview. Pose is the most beautiful show I have ever seen. What a way to honor this shining soul and his fantastic voyage. I have subscribed and will listen to more.
  • Yianni S.
    So Smart
    I was never one who really wrote reviews for podcasts, but after listening to the episode where that god awful David Crosby came on and acted like an absolute idoit for the entire time, I had to come online and give Scott a 5 star review. He is always so well prepared for these interviews and always knows exactly the right questions to ask, and it always seems like the guests are genuinely surprised and honored by how much research he has done. Love this show. twitter/IG: @yiannisines
  • commute podcaster
    In depth interviews?
    Scott Feinberg is a nice guy and sometimes gets good insight from the interviewee but really whenever the interviewee offers it without being asked. I find the approach to chronologically following the actor’s career to not be so interesting. You don’t really get in depth into the actor’s mindset and life like you do with Off Camera. The actors tend to be very flattered because they got to talk about their work for an hour and Scott is very flattering, sometimes obsequious. Some interviews are great but others are more formulaic.
  • earlandson
    Yeah, but
    I can see why David got so upset. Your questions were good, but they crawled along moment by moment. By the time he blew up you were still in Laurel Canyon. It felt like this interview was going to take hours to get to current times and his perspective now. It would have been nice, and he would have been happier, to get to the making of the doc and his perspective now.
  • shoegal5525
    I just love the way you get to the heart of the person yet never step over their words. Job well done!!! You handled yourself self with grace and never stooped to David’s level. Great job 👍
  • Mindspray
    Poor excuse
    For an interview show. Where have I heard of this guy...oh yeah, he hosts “Award Chatter” about current movies. Awards! They give them to movies like Green Book. If that trash can be successful then so can a dolt like Feinberg. Trash.
