The Hollywood Reporter has teamed up with Virgin Atlantic on an exclusive partnership for its award-winning Roundtable series.
THR’s Roundtables are award season’s premier platform for conversations around the entertainment industry’s current season. The series brings together the most celebrated award contenders for intimate conversations regarding their respective nominations and journeys to achieve these high honors.
This first-of-its-kind partnership reinforces the airline’s commitment to creating different experiences for its customers, including Hollywood’s legacy talent and flourishing newcomers. Virgin Atlantic and THR aim to “open the dialogue to celebrate the successes and advocate for the individuality of the top actors, actresses, writers, directors and producers.”
