At the backstage interview, when asked about what to expect for the shorter Season 7, D.B. Weiss replied, ?It will be bigger, and it will be better, and it will also be worse. But mostly better.?
Battle of the Bastards
Regarding winning the writing category, David Benioff shared that his favorite part is the scene of Jon Snow during the Battle of the Bastards. He explained that the line in the script was just Jon Snow drawing his sword and looks at the horses charging at him. But he credits the beautiful execution of the scene to director Miguel Sapochnik and actor Kit Harington.
?You know, a great director can make you look better and great actors make you seem a lot smarter,? he told the press. ?We?re very lucky that we work with the people that we work with.?
Benioff further shares that the biggest sequence they have shot was the Battle of the Bastards where they used the most extras, crew members, visual effects shots and stunts and it had the most number of shooting days. It was a scene that encompassed every single department.
When asked about what they can say regarding winning more awards than previous-record holder Frasier, Weiss replied that they love Frasier and they had a long run. ?We?re sure that someday somebody will take this from us, we just hope it doesn?t happen until we?re all dead.?
