Hoo boy, we had a LOT of Afternoon Chats this year — in part because the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes seriously curtailed red carpet events, and we needed something to do. The good news? It was a blast! Check these out, revisit your favorites, and/or spend some time with chats you might have missed! I’ve organized them vaguely by category.
