Game of Thrones wins the "Best Show" award at MTV Movie & TV Awards

Game of Thrones has had a long run, and always done so well with awards. The show recently made its Season 8 awards debut at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, where it won the “Best Show” award. Read on!

The award was given to Jacob Anderson a.k.a. Grey Worm, before the awards even began, on the red carpet itself. This was an unusual move, but Anderson accepted it with grace:

He said:

“A lot of amazing people work on Game of Thrones, so I feel weird being the one to hold this, but I’ve always wanted to hold one of these. So, congratulations to everybody, all the people I love on the show, who have worked incredibly hard, you will get to touch this. Cast and crew, and everybody who’s amazing, we did it!”

Here was the full roster of the Best Show category:

Best Show

Big Mouth
Game of Thrones
Riverdale
Schitt’s Creek
The Haunting of Hill House

Game of Thrones also had three other nominations, Arya v/s the White Walkers was nominated for Best Fight, with Arya getting a second nomination for Maisie Williams, in the Best Hero category. Also nominated was Emilia Clarke for Best Performance in a Show category. However, Game of Thrones didn’t win any of the three. Take a look at the categories:

Best Performance In A Show

Elisabeth Moss (June Osborne/Offred) — The Handmaid’s Tale
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) — Game Of Thrones
Gina Rodriguez (Jane Villanueva) — Jane The Virgin
Kiernan Shipka (Sabrina Spellman) — Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina

Best Hero

Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel) — Captain Marvel
John David Washington (Ron Stallworth) — BlacKkKlansman
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) — Game Of Thrones
Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man) — Avengers: Endgame
Zachary Levi (Billy Batson/Shazam) — Shazam!

Best Fight

Avengers: Endgame — Captain America vs. Thanos
Captain Marvel — Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva
Game of Thrones — Arya Stark vs. the White Walkers
RBG — Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality
WWE Wrestlemania — Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair

Well, we at least got this skit of Shazam star Zachary Levi, who hosted the awards, “betraying” Daenerys, which was easily the best part of the ceremony. Take a look:

Game of Thrones has kicked off the awards season with a bang. The 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were recently announced, and Game of Thrones walked away with a new record of 10 wins! Read on!

Deadline published the results of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which are announced a few days, usually a week, before the Primetime Emmy Awards. Game of Thrones had previously won a record 7 Creative Arts Emmy Awards for Season 7, (and already one for 2019 Emmys with 32 nominations,) but has now returned with 10 wins for Season 8. Let’s look at all the categories:

Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour)
Game Of Thrones, “The Long Night”

Outstanding Special Visual Effects
Game Of Thrones, “The Bells”

Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
Game Of Thrones, “The Bells”

Outstanding Makeup for a Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic)
Game Of Thrones, “The Long Night”

Game Of Thrones, “The Long Night” – Ramin Djawadi

Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour)
Game Of Thrones, “The Long Night”

Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series
Game Of Thrones, “The Long Night”

Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie

The highlight of the 10 wins is, of course, Ramin Djawadi winning for music composition again. Also, five of the ten wins are for “The Long Night”, which is expected to win more at the Primetime Emmy Awards scheduled to take place September 22nd.

Here’s hoping Game of Thrones breaks more records there. Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Disney confirms and reveals Kit Harington's role for Marvel Cinematic Universe's The Eternals

Game of Thrones actors seem to be making the most of the popularity that the show brought to them. The latest actor to enter a giant franchise post-Thrones is Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow. Earlier, we reported that Kit was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now we not only have an official confirmation but more details about his role. Read on!

As you might know, Disney is currently holding the D23 Expo, which is a showcase for its projects, especially upcoming ones. Hidden among the plethora of projects announced, mostly for Disney+, was a small casting announcement that came from MCU chief Kevin Feige. He announced Kit Harington as a cast member for MCU’s The Eternals, and Kit will be playing the role of Dane Whitman, aka the Black Knight!

The Eternals, set for release on November 6, 2020, was announced recently with a star-studded cast, which included none other than Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark on Thrones. Now Kit has joined the cast. Black Knight isn’t one of the Eternals but is a pretty important character in the comics, which means that we will see Kit’s brooding self in the MCU for a while. Looks like we might end up getting more Robb/Jon interaction through the MCU than we ever did on Game of Thrones.

What do you guys think? Excited to see the Stark brothers reunite in the MCU? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Kit Harington to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Game of Thrones starts seem to be finding themselves in all sorts new projects, but the latest rumor might be the grandest of them all. Kit Harington, who played the role of Jon Snow, is said to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, aka the MCU. Read on!

The news, while still technically a rumor as of now, comes from a report from Deadline. Apparently sources have confirmed that Kit Harington will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was not a part of the official announcement of the next phase of the MCU, which was revealed recently. However, with the D23 expo currently going on, a lot of new announcements are coming from Disney this week. While the report says no more details are known as of now, an official announcement might come from D23 before the end of the expo. Not to forget, Kit will be joining his ‘brother’ Richard Madden, who has been announced to be a part of MCU’s The Eternals.

Now, there is no shortage of projects in MCU to accommodate new actors, especially leads, with many of the former lead actors either moving on, or getting close to the end of their MCU stints. We could see Kit become one of the new faces of the MCU. However it’s also possible he plays one of the smaller characters or villains in one of the already announced films. For now, the fan favourite choice seems to be Adam Warlock, who was teased at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

What role would you want to see Kit play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Tell us in the comments, down below!
