Game of Thrones nominated for Shorty Awards

nightking

Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams and a popular GoT GIF have all been nominated for Shorty Awards, which are honors for excellence in social media.

The Shorty Awards are divided into two competitions: influencers and brands. All three of our nominees fall into the latter category. Influencer winners (and five additional finalists) are selected through a combination of votes from the public and scores from The Real Time Academy, whose members include Jenna Marbles and Arianna Huffington.

Nominees are judged for the quality and originality of their content on all social media platforms, innovation in social media usage, interaction with followers, fans, friends and critics and their overall impact on the world.

The Shorty Awards have nominated Game of Thrones for Best TV Show, citing its popularity across varied social media platforms, the cast members’ virtual interaction with fans and the characters’ knack for inspiring Halloween costumes and internet memes. Speaking of which …

The GIF of the Night’s King from “Hardhome” raising his arms to simultaneously raise the dead and taunt Jon Snow, dubbed ‘Come at me, Bro” by the internet, is nominated for GIF of the Year.

Last but not least, Maisie Williams is nominated for Best Actress for her online engagement with fans, most notably the launch of her own YouTube channel.

You can show your support for the Game of Thrones nominees by voting here. The voting period began January 19th and will end February 18th at 11:59 pm EST.

The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on April 16th, which will be available to live stream.

      I wonder when Linda & Elio will get their first Shorty nomination…

      Not happening. February 14th, it is known !

      I really wouldn’t say its coming out on February 14th, its a 50/50 chance, people are just making educated guesses on when we will see it. :p

    3. Matthew The Dragon knight,

      Where did the supposed Feb 14th release date come from?

      I’m not getting my hopes up for the trailer to be released this weekend. I was kinda expexting it to drop during the Superbowl (which would give me a reason to tune in). Plus if we were told before hand, the anticipation would be awesome.

      It’s the premiere date of HBO’s new show Vinyl.

      I hope we’ll get some promotional pics this week-end though. The timing seems about right.

    5. Night’s King.Such a cool character.Always looking after his people,merciful by letting night’s watch and wildlings escape, great sense of humor and on top of that can bring people back from dead.All round a very likeable guy.

      This is cruelty. A man demands the trailer for season 6.

      Oh I forgot about them !

      Yeah, if Fevruary 14th is the date for the trailer (and it seems very likely), we’ll probably get promo pics by next week (let’s hope for next week-end !)

      Mihnea,
      Think about it this way : at least we won’t have to wait for long between the first trailer and the premiere.

      Not entirely correct. As JackBauer24 calculated, there’s usually around 77 days between trailer and premiere (which would put the trailer on Feb 7, aka next week). If the trailer hits Feb 14, it’s just a week less. We’re exactly on schedule.

      E: also, obviously, 77 days = 11 weeks = 2 1/2 months ?

    11. Honestly I’m kinda surprised Kit’s there. Even more surprised that he let himself be seen with Sophie. I don’t think it’s a big deal but others will go raving about how basically it’s a spoiler.

      Edit: is Sophie’s jumper supposed to be Brienne in her dress fighting the bear with a sword? If so where the hell can you get it?

      They are nominated together and will sit in the same table with all GoT cast…there is no other way. If they win the award every actor with proper acting time from S5 will win.

      Yes but this time is the actors who are nominated not the show. If they win it’s an award for the actors not the producers, channel e.t.c

      Ahhh I meant that killed off cast members usually rarely show up during the next awards season, and are seen with current cast members even less. Some will take it as proof that he’s back

      Edit: side note – is a cast win all but guaranteed at this point, if they’ve made sure so many have shown compared to last year?

      Meryn Trant will also be there. Pedro Pascal was last year….nobody will take it as spoiler. Kit is nominated
      Alfie Allen, Ian Beattie, John Bradley-West, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Michael Condron, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Ben Crompton, Liam Cunningham, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Natalie Dormer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Tara Fitzgerald, Jerome Flynn, Brian Fortune, Joel Fry, Aidan Gillen, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Michiel Huisman, Hannah Murray, Brenock O’Connor, Daniel Portman, Iwan Rheon, Owen Teale, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, Maisie Williams and Tom Wlaschiha

      all of them are nominated.
      No it’s not guaranteed.. every year most of the GoT actors go, it’s different to snub an award’s ceremony where you are personally nominated (along with the other cast) than one where the show you act in is.

    18. Loved Sophie’s Bear and the Maiden shirt.

      Because it is an actors only award and they are nominated for ensemble and they won the Emmy, I think there is a good chance for another win.

      Also, a ton of them went last year. It’s a pretty people in pretty clothes fest.

    20. Whether you actively realize it or not, you sign up for fame when you seek out employment in the public sphere, whether it be acting, music, politics. That being said all those people shoving pens, markers, and photos in Kit Harington’s face is a little much. I can understand why some who are not able to handle it as well, snap.

      Hibberd said to stay tuned to EW for more exclusive Thrones coverage in the month of January when they released the pic of Bran. It’s looking like that was a farce unless they have an article or something that ties in with the SAG awards this weekend.

    25. Thanks for the link for Kit/Rose’s arrival at LAX. Yeah.. he doesn’t look his jovial self.. how do these people KNOW when they are arriving? Im like really? Do they just hang out at the airport knowing people are flying in? Does someone on the other side of the pond tell them to be at the airport at such a such time bc they just got on a flight? I guess I don’t follow stars enough to know how’s it done..

    26. Well I commend a guy like Kit for handling that so well. I don’t know what he thinks internally, but I know for myself I’d want to get the hell off the show as quick as possible if I’m going to be mobbed like that everywhere I go. He’s a nice guy and would never say anything negative, but I see photos like that and…man. I wouldn’t blame him if he was tired of being on the show and wanted it to end.

Thanks GoT for such awesome characters!!! Let’s go S6 E1

      But I thought they’d avoid it because the media will be up his cute butt
      Though, maybe he is dead 🙁 lol

      Anyway I’m super excited to see the whole cast there 🙂

      Can someone explain how all these actors were nominated ? Is it if the show is nominated then all the cast is also?

    29. People keep conmenting on how Kit probably hates his life right now because he keeps getting mobbed
      It’s part of the business for Gods sake
      If he is seen, which is super rare , he will get mobbed
      GOT made him. Lol

    31. Lysarra,

      Of the competition, Homeland and House of Cards aren’t contenders. Mad Men won this award twice early in its run, and is leaving on a high note, but I suspect any impulse to vote for it will go toward a Drama Actor prize for Jon Hamm (as was the case at the HFPA and the Emmys; he’s never won SAG individually before). So that leaves Downton Abbey, which has won 2 of the last 3 years (interrupted by the Breaking Bad win). Downton is a formidable contender, particularly since it’s on its way out the door, but this seems to be the year where the major awards bodies (other the HFPA, but they’re all about new stuff) reward GOT at last, so it can definitely win.

      IceSpider,

      Well, they got photographed at Heathrow leaving, so with that information you could deduce approximately when they were arriving, if you were an autograph hunter. The paparazzi obviously just hang around LA airport on the lookout for famous people.

      I want that sweater too. Someone needs to use their awesome internet skills to find it. Unless it was made for her, because designers so that kind of thing.

      If someone does find it, then all I need is….money. ?

    34. peter Dinklage won’t win, it will go to Jon Hamm For Mad Men.
      so far we haven’t lost a Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble, I would love to keep it that way.
      we have never won a Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, so I would love for Game of Thrones to finally win that one, thrones has one of the best cast of actors in the business and we higher more and more great actors every season.
      so hopefully we take home at least two SAG Awards.

    38. Speaking of Liam Cunningham, … Okay, yeah, this is a bit off topic. I was watching the Thronecast videos that Lulu’s Mum shared. In 2013, Liam Cunningham says that George told him at the premiere (March 2013) that he was halfway through writing Book 6, The Winds of Winter. Not only that, George told Liam a big secret about Ser Davos. Maybe there is hope for someday having the book.

      I wonder why Rose is with them, since she wasn’t part of the cast for season 5. I wonder if she’ll attend the SAG’s.

      I notice that Kit is the only one getting pens and photographs shoved in his face. Poor Sophie. But considering she’s dressed way down, it wouldn’t surprise me if people didn’t recognize her.

      Edit: something else I noticed – some of those autograph seekers have Jon Snow pics. How in the world are these people so prepared. Do they have stacks of celeb pics in the trunks of their cars waiting for the right moment one of them goes through LAX? Kinds scary.

      As someone who lives in LA, and frequents LAX, yes there are people (paparazzi) with stacks of pictures who wait around all day for celebs. Like huge binders with stock photos of famous people. They pretty much all signal each other when someone famous has touched down. They’re tipped off by drivers or handlers who are waiting at the airport. And sometimes they hand the stock photos to regular folks to get the autograph and then pay them, since they’re likelier to sign a photo if it’s like a teenager holding it than a pap.

    48. Benny,

      Wish I had her gorgeous hair! Not to mention the boyfriend 🙂 His popular role and the cliffhanger that they created has shot him to superstar status. I wonder how long it will last. I know if I saw Kit with another cast mate I would be polite and ask for both their autographs, but that’s just me. I’ve also wondered how these people have these glossy photos and posters at the ready. And how do they know where the star will be ahead of time. Most of us didn’t know they were even attending the awards until last minute. Must be people who get inside information?

      Edit: never mind, I just read El-Bobbie gave an explanation those questions.

      The lack of images from the season is concerning. Although, I guess it could mean that there’s lots of VFX getting added which could mean awesome battle/dragon stuff…or, they’re just being frugal and enjoying the free publicity of awards season before throwing us an actual trailer…or…well, I just don’t know, and it’s making me crazy! [takes another chug of wine with shaking hands]

      El-Bobbie,

      Benny,

      Un-freaking-believable. What a circus. Are there groups like this at Heathrow too? Yikes! No wonder celebs often get testy with these people. It would make me nervous, paranoid and very grumpy to have to add this to any travel plans. Geesh!

      See, this is the type of thinking that makes me uneasy and is the reason famous people are mobbed. Yes, it is true without a fanbase you don’t become famous, and it is true he is known and now making tons of money because of Game of Thrones. But that shouldn’t give people free reign to think he’s some circus act whose sole job is take your stupid sharpie and sign your stock photo just because he leaves his house. It’s beyond pathetic to hang out all day at an airport waiting for some celebrity to pop through and sign your 8x 10 so you can turn around and sell it on ebay. Does it come with the territory when you sign up for a job in the public eye? Yes, it does. No denying it. But people don’t make it any easier for these celebrities either.

      I agree. It may come with the job but that doesn’t mean it should. I don’t care for the celebrity worship culture where it includes such things as paparazzi taking candid pics and people bothering someone they don’t even know just to get them to write their name down so they can turn around and make money off it. I get that it’s normal for a fan to become star struck if they come across an actor they really admire, and want to say hello, but the crowds I’ve seen yelling and shoving paper in their faces are so awkward to watch at times.

      Jesus, that was horrible and uncomfortable to watch. Like others said, actors know that frenzy comes with the territory, but seems to me that those people harassing them at the airport are paparazzi and not actual fans. “Sign my Rolling Stone cover, sign my Rolling Stone cover, sign my Rolling Stone cover! (so I can sell it on ebay)” Ugh, what the hell happened to please.

      I tend to think that it is the case. I don’t think Brienne will mean to leave Sansa with Littlefinger at all, but if she’s too slow or gets some bad information about what has happened to Sansa, it’s a strong possibility.

      I think of it this way – they are most likely aligning everyone back up (to some extent) with their book stories.

      And where is Sansa in the books? In the Vale. Where is Brienne? In the Riverlands. Does she even know where Sansa is in the books? Does she even have any clue? No.

      So whatever happens at the beginning of Season 6 will mimic that as best as they can.

      I haven’t been able to come up with any explanation for her whereabouts that satisfactorily fits all the evidence we have.

      If rallying the Northern lords is going to be her main plot, I have a hard time figuring why they all seem to be such minor parts. Conversely, if she goes immediately to Baelish — which would put her back into something like her book arc, which is something the writers have done before, and are doing in other instances this season, e.g., Jaime — what is the Vale army doing all season? I can’t make out how them being in the North that early would fit with any of the other things we know happens, e.g., Jon vs. Ramsay.

      I’m expecting everyone to simply ask her opinion, carry out her wishes, & pledge their allegiance in approximately 4

      scenes in two episodes.

      Polishing their armor, practicing, writing letters, questioning Littlefinger, traveling, etc [/spoiler]

      For me, everything points to Cerwyn…book mentions, location, show foreshadowing, spoilers. If Rickon is living at Umber’s house, why would he and Sansa go to the battlefield? Rickon might take Shaggydog to war, but why would Sansa go there? Maybe she hears Jon is coming. Maybe it’s a vision. Maybe she wants to go with her baby brother. Littlefinger is the only one who would think it’s a good idea. The audience doesn’t know the Northern lords, so they won’t have a lot of scenes. There will be a couple of introductions, speeches, and battle cries.

      What on the show points to Cerwyn? The actor who people have guessed is playing Cerwyn has all of one scene, most likely, since he filmed for a single day.

      As for why Sansa would go to the battle, probably for the same reasons Catelyn did.

      That seems like the exact opposite of a reason to go there, if the Boltons can effortlessly march in and kill the lord.

      And again, said new lord appears to have only one scene.

      Yeah, and there’s only so much you can do with one day of shooting on this show. Moreover, that one day overlapped with the one day of shooting for the actor playing “Manderly”, meaning they’re most likely filming together.
