Carolyn
Blackwood

COO, Pictures Group

Blackwood has been credited by some with coming upon the idea to move WarnerMedia’s entire 2021 feature release slate to HBO Max as a way of dealing with pandemic-shuttered theaters while simultaneously boosting the profile of the fledgling streaming service. The move outraged talent (notably director Christopher Nolan, who departed the studio for Universal) and their reps, but Blackwood judged it a success, citing “Godzilla vs. Kong” and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” as films that performed well at the box office despite having a simultaneous HBO Max release. Blackwood served as president and chief content officer of the company’s New Line Cinema division before being promoted to her current role, which could change as WarnerMedia merges with Discovery.
