    So we’re expected to take Oprah seriously as an actress now?

    She is so outclassed by the five other women involved that she really has no business being involved in this roundtable, and especially should not be front-and-center in the photo.

    You know, Jerry Springer has done more acting than Oprah and nobody would ever ask him to be on an actor’s roundtable.

    I respect Oprah as an actress but yeah, there are other women who should have appeared on the roundtable before her. I thought she was fine in ‘The Butler’ but definitely not Oscar worthy. Where was Brie Larson? Or Cate Blanchett?
