The Hollywood Reporter holds roundtable discussions all the time featuring celebrities talking about the industry and their experiences. Usually, they’re held when a major awards show is on the horizon. This one specifically features television comedy actresses for the publication’s Emmy coverage.

Lena Dunham (Girls), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin), Tracee Ellis Ross (black-ish), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) open up about sexism and racism within the industry. It’s interesting to hear their thoughts and, more importantly, situations they’ve encountered blatant misogyny. It’s shocking in this day and age that it’s as prevalent as it is in Hollywood.

The full episode doesn’t premiere until Sunday, August 16, but snippets from each lady have been shared. Based on what I’ve seen, I can’t wait to watch it. These ladies are articulate, hilarious and charming. Check out a clip featuring each actress below. They’re definitely worth watching.

How exciting! Next weekend, SNL is introducing their first ever out lesbian cast member: Kate McKinnon! She will make her debut with the sexy hilarious host, Sofia Vergara on Saturday, April 7. (“Ay, Jay! It’s so exciting!”).

There has been some speculation that Kristin Wiig might be leaving SNL after this season, which would be devastating. That being said, if she’s more or less going to be her replacement, it must speak to how funny she is. I’ve got a good feeling about her and can’t wait to watch her this weekend.

To get a feel for her, watch some of her work in the two videos I’ve included below!
