It's as inescapable as any law of physics: To be a movie director, you must first direct a movie. But being a movie director and becoming one are two fundamentally dissimilar things, as the filmmaking participants in the Envelope Roundtable made clear. For nearly two hours, five of the year's most celebrated filmmakers gathered together at The Times discussed the challenges -- and rewards -- of making distinctive and often highly personal movies, even as the studios grow all the more interested in presold sequels, remakes and adaptations of board games.

Sacha Baron Cohen stole the show at the BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards Saturday evening at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Daniel Percy Lattimore is the kind of Super Lotto winner longtime players love to hate. The 75-year-old Ojai resident only started playing the game three months ago. Five bucks, twice a week. Always Quick Picks. No rituals. And most frustrating to long-losing Lotto dreamers, few plans for his new millions. That's $13 million. Or, put another way, $650,000 a year for the next 20 years.

The darkish comedy "Afternoon Delight" gives the talented Kathryn Hahn her first movie lead, and for a while it looks like an opportunity to dig in deep. Hahn's vanity-free performance as a bored Los Angeles housewife who befriends a stripper goes a considerable way to humanize a film of occasional insight and underdeveloped provocations. Ultimately, though, her character is as thinly conceived and hard to root for as everyone else in filmmaker Jill Soloway's erratic blend of not-quite satire and halfhearted soul searching.

It was supposed to be a family outing, but "it would have been ridiculous," Victoria Penley says, if only half of her family had gotten into Disneyland while the other half had to wait outside in the parking lot. That was the situation Penley says she faced on a Sunday afternoon a year ago.

Kathryn Bigelow sounds a wee bit tired of questions about being a "female director," but given that on Tuesday she became only the fourth woman to be nominated for best director by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, she knows it comes with the territory. "I long personally for the day when the modifier is a moot point," said a very happy Bigelow, whose film nabbed nine nominations, including one for best picture. "I anticipate that day will come, but if 'The Hurt Locker' can make the impossible seem possible to somebody, it's pretty overwhelming and gratifying.

Craig Johnson comes as advertised. Standing outside the Autry National Center on a boiling summer afternoon, the Wyoming-based crime novelist is decked out in a long-sleeve shirt made of heavy cotton, scuffed brown boots and a 10-gallon hat that provides shade, but not nearly enough. Spotting his interlocutor, Johnson sticks out his hand and delivers a booming "How ya doin'?!"

"I know you heard it before, but it works," Dinah Shore said in response to the laughter that greeted her telling of an old joke. It was that sort of an evening: The old jokes still seemed funny, the old melodies still sounded romantic and everyone was happy to admit just how long they'd all known each other. Shore was emcee Friday night as the Society of Singers honored Tony Martin with its third "Ella Lifetime Achievement Award."

A warning to amateur history buffs out there: Kathryn Allison Mann has a job that might just make you blind with envy. As head of research on "Mad Men," which winds down its sixth season June 23 on AMC, Mann is responsible for upholding the period drama's well-earned reputation for authenticity and for mining the tumultuous history of the 1960s for potential fodder for series creator Matthew Weiner and his writing team. "It's relentlessly interesting," says Mann, 29, who studied English and philosophy at Bates College in Maine and started on "Mad Men" as a production assistant before stepping into her current position in Season 4.

Editor's note: Taking a moment from her vigilant defense of depicting scenes of torture in "Zero Dark Thirty," director Kathryn Bigelow here addresses something else close to her heart about the film: The power, strength and vulnerability that lead actress Jessica Chastain brings to the work. *** Talent comes in many guises, but all original talents share the same quality: They're unique, one of a kind. Totally unlike the rest of the crowd. Jessica Chastain, at least to my mind, is one of our original talents, a rare and gifted actress.

As the debate over “Zero Dark Thirty” and torture rages on , director Kathryn Bigelow staunchly defended the Oscar-nominated film Tuesday on “The Colbert Report.” Describing the movie as a “first rough cut” of history, Bigelow expressed her own unequivocal objection to torture, which she characterized as “reprehensible.” But she said she would have been “whitewashing” history if she had chosen not to include scenes...

Kathryn Hahn is a familiar face from her supporting roles in such films as “How Do You Know,” “Revolutionary Road” and “Anchorman” and TV shows “Parks and Recreation,” “Girls” and “Hung.” Now, the 38-year-old actress is getting her first leading role in a feature film with “Afternoon Delight,” a dramatic comedy premiering Monday at the Sundance Film Festival. “Delight” is somewhat akin to a contemporary creative class retelling of “Diary of a Mad Housewife.” In the film, Hahn plays Rachel, a married mother of one who is suffering from a certain upscale ennui.
