Game of Thrones had a very good Season 6, being well received by fans and critics alike. The season went on to do really well at the awards season this year, getting nominated for almost all awards it was eligible for, and winning quite a many of them. While the awards season is almost over for now, nominations are still rolling in for the show.
The latest one comes from the MTV Movie and TV Awards, and Game of Thrones has managed to make a healthy presence. Read on!
Previously known as the MTV Movie Awards, this is a 25-year-old awards show, that has, for the first time in its history, expanded to accommodate TV series, renaming itself to the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Game of Thrones, unsurprisingly, is the heaviest contender in the new race. The show and its stars have managed to get three nominations, in vaguely different categories, as can be seen from the list of nominations posted by EW. First off is the Show of the Year category. The full nominations are as below :
SHOW OF THE YEAR
Game of Thrones (HBO)
Pretty Little Liars (Freeform)
Stranger Things (Netflix)
This Is Us (NBC)
Next up is the Best Actor category, which is gender neutral. Check out the full nominations, below :
BEST ACTOR IN A SHOW

Emilia Clarke – Game of Thrones (HBO)
Gina Rodriguez – Jane the Virgin (The CW)
Jeffrey Dean Morgan – The Walking Dead (AMC)
Mandy Moore – This Is Us (NBC)
Millie Bobby Brown – Stranger Things (Netflix)
Lastly, is the Tearjerker category, which is about scenes that made the audiences cry. No surprises as to which one from Game of Thrones made it. Check out the full nominations :
Game of Thrones – Hodor’s (Kristian Nairn) Death (HBO)
Grey’s Anatomy – Meredith tells her children about Derek’s death (Ellen Pompeo) (ABC)
Me Before You – Will (Sam Claflin) tells Louisa (Emilia Clarke) he can’t stay with her (Warner Bros. Pictures)
Moonlight – Paula (Naomie Harris) tells Chiron (Trevante Rhodes) that she loves him (A24)
This Is Us – Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Randall (Lonnie Chavis) at karate (NBC)
This category pits TV shows against movies, and as you can see, Emilia’s Me Before You scene will be competing against Hodor’s death.
Although the competition is tough, we think Game of Thrones is taking all three awards home. What do you think? Tell us in the comments, down below!
