The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 19 of the most recent 28 Best Picture champs. Last year, all nine Oscar nominees for Best Picture numbered among the 10 PGA contenders; only “Deadpool” was snubbed by the academy. The PGA prize went to “La La Land” while the Oscar was (eventually) won by “Moonlight.”

Bloys said the five potential projects are all still in the works, and he’s seen some material, but that it’s not a bakeoff. “They’re all on different schedules,” he said. “They didn’t start at the same startlines, so we’re at different stages, but I’m very encouraged by what we’ve seen. I don’t have a timetable when we’re going to make decisions on anything. I could make between zero and five. Probably more likely around one.”

The eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones will not return until 2019, HBO has confirmed.
In a statement the cable service said the series will be a six-episode run.
They also announced that David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be on directing duties, with the writing team consisting of Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
The finale of season 7, The Dragon And The Wolf, aired on August 27, 2017.
Back in May, HBO announced plan to develop four potential offshoots of Game Of Thrones with the main series coming to an end.

News of a 2019 release window isn’t all that surprising when you consider that season 8 will ostensibly be built around feature-length episodes. Last year, the seventh season ranged from 59 to 80 minutes, ending with the frankly unmissable finale, “The Dragon and the Wolf.” This, coupled with the prolonged production cycle, all but confirms that HBO has no intention of rushing new episodes of Game of Thrones out the gate. And we can’t say we’re complaining.
