HBO dominated this year’s Emmy Awards with Succession, which managed to bag a whopping 25 nominations – including a record-breaking 14 in the acting categories, the most ever for a series. HBO and HBO Max scored a combined 140 nominations — a new record for the company, beating out a singular HBO’s 137 nods in 2019.


“I was very pleased with the amount of shows and the depth,” he told Variety. “In other words, it wasn’t one show that dominated. We had a number of shows that did really well. I would like to see all of our shows recognized, but it’s really nice to see a lot of them recognized, and a lot of them, not just a passing nomination here or there but really, really deep. That’s always a nice endorsement.”

He also talked about the future of House of The Dragon, “I would say the measure of success is the same kind of metrics that we use for everything. Which is, some combination of ratings, of reviews, of buzz, all of the above. But there’s no threshold for it’s gotta hit this many viewers or anything like that.”
