Here's a list of everything revealed and generated by the hacks so far.The Source Revealed?On Wednesday night, U.S. government officials indicated that North Korea does appear to have been "centrally involved" in the Sony hack.

Watch: Directors Reveal Themselves at the THR Awards Roundtable

1 hour ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Watch this THR interview roundtable, and guess what? The one who comes off the best is the most likely to be nominated: American indie Linklater, whose "Boyhood" is clearly admired by the others in the group, especially Leigh, Tyldum and Nolan, who admire him for having the balls to not only conceive but commit to this 12-year low-budget feat, which demanded that he abandon being in control or knowing the outcome.  Brit Nolan and Norwegian outsider Tyldum come off as the most intense and demanding of the bunch. Jolie laughs as Nolan, who reveres Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott and George Lucas, recounts having a blast filming on a glacier in 100-mile-an-hour winds in Iceland as his crew complained bitterly. Tyldum describes his total commitment when he shoots--and the bizarre intimacy he has with his lead actor. It's not always the nice guys who finish first when it comes to directing. »
