Now this category is a huge one for the Watchers On The Wall Awards- our preliminary round for Best Dramatic Scene in season 5 of Game of Thrones.
Like all our categories, there is a wide variety of scenes that viewers considered best in the submitting process. We have the major dramatic scenes that were teased in the season 5 trailers, and the ones that were whispered and speculated about for months before we ever saw them. We have nominated scenes that never happened in the novels, and so they hit even savvy ASOIAF readers like a freight train. There are the quieter dramatic moments too, when not many words are spoken and the drama is largely crafted by the actors’ skills. There are the loud moments also, when the show’s famous gift for action and special effects kicks in.
They’re all worthy contenders, but we can only have five nominees in the final round, and so it’s time to vote and narrow down the list.
The Standard Rules: This is the preliminary round! Narrow this selection down to the top 5 contenders. In order to find your top 5 picks for Best Dramatic Scene we’re asking that each of you select up to FIVE nominees from the poll. You can choose fewer if you like, but you cannot choose more than 5.
At the end of 72 hours (Monday 8/31/15 at 12:00PM EDT), whichever five scenes have the most votes will continue on to the final round. (Note: in the finals, you will only have one vote to cast in each category!)
The results will be revealed when it’s time to vote for the final winner of Best Dramatic Scene, in a few weeks.
*Reminder: you may choose up to five nominees in this poll!*
Nominees are listed in random order:
