As the awards season barrels on we often get countless interviews featuring various contenders rehashing the same anecdotes and quips ad nauseam, so it’s refreshing when a different path is taken. As they did in previous years, Variety has gathered over two dozen of the year’s top actors for extensive one-on-one conversations with each other, offering a different viewpoint than most interviews can provide.

This year has no shortage of compelling combinations, including up-and-comers Timothée Chalamet and Daniel Kaluuya, A-listers Adam Sandler and Jennifer Lawrence, veteran character actors Richard Jenkins and Laurie Metcalf, unforgettable supporting players Sam Rockwell and Allison Janney, the radiant pair of Margot Robbie and Jake Gyllenhaal, a humorous chat between Saoirse Ronan and Kristen Wiig, comedian Kumail Nanjiani and superhero Gal Gadot, and much more.

With 14 chats thus far, and almost all spanning around 30 minutes, with perhaps more to come, start watching below.
