How 80-Something Sheila Nevins Thrives In Hollywood’s Youth Oriented Culture

Married with a son, Sheila has defied the odds, remaining at the helm of HBO for decades. And she just did it again.

As President of HBO Documentary Films, Sheila Nevins has made some of the most fascinating documentaries in history (Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Nothing Left Unsaid, Diana, Our Mother). She has received 32 Emmy Awards (more than any other single person) and 26 Academy Awards—among other accolades.

Married with a son, Sheila has defied the odds, remaining at the helm of HBO for decades. And she just did it again. At 78, she has wrote her first book, You Don’t Look Your Age…And other Fairy Tales. It is candid, funny, and poignant—and details her climb to the top, her challeges with working in a male-dominated industry and her struggles with getting older in a youth-oriented culture.
