“I’d love to have just a little shout out to Francesca Orsie for my team [EVP Drama]Sarah Aubrey [Head of Original Content, HBO Max]Amy Gravitt and Nina Rosenstein; [EVPs, Programming] and Lisa Heller and Nancy Abraham [EVPs, Documentary] And their team and production team and business affairs team,” he told Deadline on Tuesday. “Obviously the industry at large has been going through a lot of turmoil lately, and these teams continue to focus on the job, regardless of what’s happening around it.

After beating his rivals this morning, Bloys joked that he struggled to celebrate such an achievement and was already looking forward to next year, which would likely include game of Thrones spinoff series dragon houseand the new season succession, barry And white Lotus among others.

“The brand of my particular concern, the way it works, I’m certainly excited for the show, for the creators, for everyone involved, for the teams at HBO and HBO Max. But then I’m immediately ‘Next Years’. what we are going to do?’ That’s my problem, but I’m trying to enjoy the day.”

Bloys said that in the midst of all the turmoil, it is important that he and his teams continue to do what they are doing and not worry about corporate ownership.

Together,” he said. “But you can always just focus on the show and keep your head down and work and keep trying and do the best show. That’s all we can control and that’s what this team has done wonderfully.”
