THR’s 2010 Awards Watch Animators Roundtable

It’s award season, and The Hollywood Reporter has begun posting their series of roundtable discussions with the contenders. Earlier this month they posted an one-hour discussion between screenwriters Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), Simon Beaufoy (127 Hours), Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3), John Wells (The Company Men), Todd Phillips (Due Date) and David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole).

Today we get to watch/listen to the Animators roundtable, which includes Bonnie Arnold (producer, How to Train Your Dragon), Roy Conli (producer, Tangled), Bob Last (producer, The Illusionist), Tom McGrath (director, Megamind), Chris Meledandri (producer, Despicable Me) and Lee Unkrich (director, Toy Story 3).

Unfortunately, unlike the screenwriters roundtable, THR has decided not to put the entire video online.

You can still watch over ten minutes of the roundtable in selected clips embedded after the jump.
